New foal!

by Jonah

We’ve got a new foal this morning, and he’s a boy! Sparkle finally delivered her foal early this morning. He’s a very light chestnut with one defined stocking, although all of his legs are white. Sparkle is VERY protective of him, so she had to be caught and tied to a hitching rail before we could give the colt an enema. The two fillies had stayed RIGHT next to their mommas, but he likes to wander off and explore. This makes Sparkle whinny loudly at him in worry.

I’ll try to remember to bring my camera tomorrow to take a picture of him… if Sparkle lets me get close enough, that is!

We’re not sure if Abbey is pregnant, but if she is, she’ll probably deliver sometime in February.
