Thanks all!! What a glorious day and OMG tired... Kechi was taking forever to figure out the "mama thing". I tied her up and basically, several times introduced the filly to the milk bar (Kechi's udder may be "smallish" but she seems to be producing milk w/ no problems and the IgG test(s) were good). She passed her meconium and pee'd, but it took all afternoon for her to pick up and look better... They are currently separated from the others - in a 16x16 pen.

They now both have names - KoKo's colt is "CharKoal" - LP Painted CharKoal E. Kechi's filly is "Jynx" - LP Painted Krmel Jynx...

I've got a lot of pictures to go thru and do up (Sierra took almost 100 on her phone and I'm still working on getting them all down loaded - haven't even gone thru them yet...). In the damp humidity this morning, neither my phone nor the camera wanted to work well - but as you can see the other pics turned out OK.

Love the names Paula, not just the names but the spelling of them too. I was drawing total blanks when it came to names before I quit breeding lol. I so admire you coming up with these great names!

Yes, welll I was too, LOL!!!

We were throwing names back and forth fast and furious in our living room again (in the last month, I've seen more of our oldest and youngest daughters' then I had in the previous 8 or so). We came up with quite a few that just didn't work. Youngest daughter started putting qualifiers on them (NO "G" names & a couple of others that I can't remember now). For CharKoal - we discussed InK, Ink E, Torch, Torchy, Nox and a whole lot of others. I think it was a co-worker of Sierra's, via text message, that stated charcoal. We rolled that around a bit and then changed the middle "c" to a "k". His new owner just calls him "Koal".

Jynx was part of the living room brain storm. I already had the pedigrees done on the both of them and the girl's had the filly's up and were going thru all the names... Skye said she really, really liked the name "Caramel", then we switched out the "c" again for a "k" and I dropped some letters to do the spelling. "Jynx" because it was Friday the 13th. Still don't know where we are going to put the "T" for "Toro" at ...
