CHF Otis came into this world on March 18th of this year. It was a stormy March day with plenty of mud to go around and poor little guy was having difficulty finding his sea legs! After a bit of thought, hay and straw with some shavings were brought out to give him some traction. It helped and afforded us time to handle him as one would for imprinting. (Handling legs, ears, face, sort of an all over massage!) It was cold and damp, which makes time seem to stand still, we decided to provide more than just good footing, so… by positioning ourselves behind him, we were able to give him the added support enabled the little guy to get to his feet and look for a warm meal. Once up, the mare, Lora, checked him all over, licking and nuzzling, some soft nickers and soon mom and babe where walking thru the muddy paddock toward a much dryer stall.
