A new journey

The first outing into the little foal paddock

morning milk break

Diva spent her day nuzzling her new baby

So treasured

The new foal in the dew laden grass

An update on Annie who kindly donated her baby rug - well it didn't fit anymore!

Diva needed a second visit from our vet this morning to help her on her way but we were able to turn her and her new foal out by mid morning into a world shrouded in a thick fog. The little foal was dressed in Annie's cast off and out grown rug for the first couple of hours but by lunch time the sun had burn its way through and we were basking in the heat of June and so she was undressed for the rest of the day. She spent most of her day asleep cocooned in the long grass with Diva Doting over her looking the happiest horse on the planet.
We brought the pair back in at about 6.00pm and Diva gave a big contented sigh when she saw her newly cleaned and refurbished stable and the thickest straw bed added by a friend of hers
