PINTO COLT!!! He is adorable! I woke up around 2am, I have no idea why, but when I looked at the camera, Summer was in labor and the front legs were out! I pulled clothes on and woke my mom up and I ran down to the barn. When I got there everything but the back legs were out but the sac was not open, so i ripped it open and cleaned the foals nose and mouth. That couldve been quite the disaster if I hadnt woke up at just the right moment, thank god i did. My mom still has the camera at the barn but when she comes up I will definately post pics!!! Im just sooo excited I couldnt hold it in. This is our maiden mare, plus it was our first time foaling!

Ok here he is! His barn name is going to be Teddy, after Theodore O' Connor, and we need a registered name for him. For those of you that like to come up with names, we're open to suggestions.

He wanted to get up and go before his back legs were even out!



The mommy, after some hard work:



Summer meets her first foal ever:



Thinking about getting up:



Have to find out what a pitchfork is:



That was tiring:



Resting again, its tough to be a foal:



This shows his markings well:



Summer and Teddy layin down together:



Big white blaze:



What do ya think? We love him! He is adorable and so small!

Thanks Cindy- Ya I get to skip school today
