Signs of Spring! Today is the first day of Spring and Beauma had her foal this morning!! We had moved her in another lot and stall waiting the birth of the new foal. She had been in there for a few weeks now, but in the night she had gotten out and got back in the pasture where she stayed before. Luckily no other horses where in there. My sister was picking Andrew up to take him to school this morning. As they were leaving, they called to say that Beauma was out and back in the pasture. So I got dressed and when I got out there she stood up! When she stood up the colt was hanging out. It's head was sticking out!!! I was sooooo excited! I ran back in to get the video camera and phone! I guess she just wanted to have her colt where she was comfortable and what was familiar to her!
All went well and she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl at 7:47am this morning! Her name is "Saphira" Richard had picked that name out when we bred her. He got the name from the movie "Eragon" "Saphira" is the name of the dragon in the movie!
So here is my new "Grandbaby!"
Mother and baby are doing great! Expect to see lots of photos and videos to come!
