Boon's New Baby Boy

Our sweet little mare, Boon, gave birth early this morning. By the time I got out of the cottage this morning to do chores, he was already pretty steady on his feet. Check him out...
Isn't he adorable?
We have 2 filly's and 2 horse colts this spring. Boon's baby is the only one born on Edwards Ranch though. The other three mares are at other places where they will be bred with different stallions for next years babies. The mare can get pregnant again 9 days after giving birth or then 21 days after that! The gestation period for a horse is eleven months. I can't wait to see our other babies. They'll be coming home soon.

Here are more baby pictures...Enjoy...
I mowed the yard most of the day and had the delight to watch the baby all day. It was fun to watch Lacey nosing around Momma Boon and new baby with great curiosity. She did lots of sniffing but Momma kept her at bay.
I hope your day was filled with delight,
