And Then There Were Three

Phone calls in the middle of the night can be unnerving to some, but this time of year for breeding and foaling operations it is just part of life- and most of the time it means new life. Margaret checked in on our two mares, Snakey and Patty last night close to midnight and found two healthy happy new foals! We weren't too far off on our guesswork. We spent the morning getting everybody weighed and measured, stalls cleaned up, and getting our foals checked out. Before we knew what happened it was lunch time, and this afternoon things got organized for a test that will start on Monday. Busy Friday!! Pictures are of John holding Snakey with her 117 pound filly, and Patty is hanging out in her clean stall with her 120 pound filly.
