Here is Jazz's first foal - a
little fellow later named "Rocks" because he tried to eat rocks before
he tried grass...I don't know if that's a good sigh or not!
This below is amazing: Keep in
mind that this foal is this mares' first baby - a first time mother.
Rocks was several hours old, dry, and lying in the straw sleeping, but
shivering. Jazz took her nose & pushed straw over the top of him making
a blanket to warm him. I didn't think folks would believe me when I told
this story, so I took pictures. Here she is below, covering him:
Rocks, snoozing comfortably with
his mommy putting the finishing touches on his blanket
Here he is sound asleep after
his first lessons on how to stand, walk, & a full belly after his first
warm meal. under mommy's' close supervision.
Here is "Bonnie", (below) named
after Mark's Aunt Bonnie who was quite an admirable woman whom we are
sorry to say died at the same time this filly was born. We will remember
her always. We named this baby after her in remembrance. .
Here is little Shooter just being born.
Mom - "Tari" is checking out her new baby.
