The new foal was born early this morning (18th April 2012).
Luckily we’d been able to lead the pregnant mare back to the neighbour’s land last Sunday bribing her with a bucket of oats and she didn’t mind the rein too much. Since waking up on Sunday morning the weather had got progressively worse and in one day we had seen snow, hail, fog, rain, high winds, clouds and sun. The temperature had also dropped so it seemed like a good idea to take her back to the shelter of the stable should she give birth.
This is a picture of the weather that day:
And here’s another one of the gorgeous foal:
