Signs of Spring

Yes, I was one of those horse crazy girls. When I was in 5th grade I actually got my own horse, Cinnamon Cindy. While for many reasons it was good that my parents did not have any desire to do so, almost as soon as I got my horse I wanted to breed her and have baby horses. Ah - young girl's dreams.

But this year I am getting to experience a little bit of those past dreamings. Saturday morning (April 12) we (as in the 'ranch') had our second foal. The first, which we have dubbed MacGregor was born the day before St. Paddy's and he is already a rambunctious little s***. I'll have to get some pictures up of him. The new addition is a filly who Kyler has already decided is going to be quite sweet. She doesn't seem to be bothered by anything and is already sniffing the dog and trotting around. This is her a few hours after she was born. (She is already much cuter.)

Gosh, I was thrilled to see some baby guppies in my fishtank the other day, but they are not particularly cute. With your foal and Beth's champ alpaca, the cuteness factor just went up a lot! I'm not sure how you get any work done- I would be watching the new horse all day long...
