    Default He's finally here!

    After 2 weeks of looking like she was ready to go my mare, Piper, snuck her foal in sometime between 2 and 5 pm yesterday! I checked her at 2 and she showed NO impending signs of labor so I left and when I came back at 5 to feed dinner I saw two extra ears in the stall! He was already standing and nursing and the placenta had already passed. What a sneaky brat! I spend 2 weeks sleeping in the barn and she has it in the middle of the day! He's REALLY long legged and has a nice face considering his dad tends to throw old-school style Hanoverian heads. He also has 4 socks just like his dad and a stupid ear that I'm not sure will continue unfolding, but as of right now it's still smushed and doesn't stand up properly (secretly I hope it stays like that, I think it's really cute!). I've named him Glee in honor of my favorite show and the fact that he was born on the day that Glee is on! I'll call him Puck (the bad boy on the show) because he was very active in-utero and still is, he's also quite feisty! He and mom are doing great! I can't wait to get him out today and see him move!

    I was SO happy he was born before Glee! I don't know what I would have done if I missed the absolutely epic version of pokerface!

    Here are some pics of his first time out, he has to wear a halter with a bell because mom is blind and needs to know where he is: http://s810.photobucket.com/albums/z...nt=Glee015.jpg

    He doesn't do anything except pirouette so who knows what he moves like yet, he's still figuring out what to do with his stilts.

    Congrats! He is adorable!

    What happened to his mom that she is blind? Great idea with the bell. She seems very content!

    His ear looks fine now! I miss having a little baby! I hope to breed my mare again next year.

    She developed uveitis 2 yrs ago while I was working at the farm she came from, they have about 100 horses so no time/room to deal with her so I took her since my place only has 6 with her there and it's a lot less crazy. She's actually REALLY smart and will run around in her field, knows where the boundaries are. I have to give the credit on the bell to her former owner, Mo Swanson. She had a filly last year with the bell and the great part is that if we need to do anything with the baby we can attach the bell to our belt and she thinks the baby is right next to her! I think there is hope for the ear, although it is still a bit wonky.
