After losing a filly due to a twisted cord in March, I got nervous when my other mare went into labor on March 26th. And it was a tough delivery... a healthy colt but with one front leg folded back. I was able to get him out enough to be able to get my hand behind his knee on his folded leg to help get him out of there. Success - and I welcomed this little guy into the world about 5 minutes before midnight.

Sire is my fewspot DRK Spotanious Combustion and dam is near leopard Heather Glens Just N Time. He appears to have a blanket and spots, but when you take a close look at him- he has white behind his ears, in his face and underneath the dark outer coat clear up his neck, etc.... so I think he will end up near leopard like his mama... or something close. By the way, thinking about naming him Heather Glens Time Bomb.

Beautiful boy! And yes he is going to really color out. Can't wait to see what he looks like after his foal coat is gone.
