Folks may remember when I posted last year about the pony stallion that I wound up helping with after a sudden rehoming. You may also remember me mentioning the other pony previously rehomed from the same people was a mare. Well, the ponies stayed friends and would yell for each other every time they passed each other. Thanks to a little help from her friendly keeper/twofoot cupid…….
The former pasture mates made themselves parents! A filly (apparently: didn’t get a chance to check myself) was born yesterday. Very cute, very small, I’ll take the camera over tomorrow.
I will have to switch to a house on that side of campus if not next door in a month or two, so it looks like I’ll need a crash course in how to help bring up baby. The keeper has done this before, local style. A little double-checking certainly won’t hurt, though.
Note since the questions are bound to come: No, the ‘I’ll give her a home’ owner didn’t really plan on this, but hardly rode her and the keeper wanted a foal. So the breeding was not unauthorized and the foal has a preplanned home to go to, with parents of pretty decent conformation given the local genepool.

Va-t-on avoir un concours pour nommer le petit / la petite? Aussi, de quelle race sont les chevaux chez vous?
Ça me surprend un peu que quelqu'un oserait faire la saillie d'une jument sans la permission de quelqu'un, mais il y a toutes sortes de personnes bizarres dans notre monde!
