Oh my. I think I have a wild one on my hands. At 1 day old, my little rodeo bronc already bucks, rears, strikes, kicks, and throws herself on the ground when she doesn't want to be handled!
But, that's what babies do. And redheads, especially. And redheaded fillies especially especially! She will learn soon enough.
|More up in her pasterns today, they'll be good and strong soon!|
|No touchey my face!|
|She had the walleyed Mare Glare down pat and she's only a day old!|
|Special naughty filly trick - don't like your butt scratched? Just sit down!|
|Not sure what had P's attention, but she had it in full!|
|I can't believe she didn't inherit the family jughead!|
|She did, however, inherit the giant family ears!|
|O wants to steal this baby! She must think that it's hers, it looks like it should be hers anyway!|
|Already in the puddles! We've been totally flooded for days!|
|Cut her head off, but she definitely has found her sea legs!|
She is CUTE CUTE CUTE though, despite her extreme redheadedness. We're still brooding on a name, any suggestions? Has to start with a D and can't be something generic/stupid/cliched/boring!
She and P both got an A+ from the vet today. Baby's IgG was well over 800 - not surprising given how late P got her milk in and how quickly baby latched (and promptly started sucking the life out of momma!). P has a minor bit of tearing but it's pretty minimal, and not surprising give how giant this filly was.
Now if it would only stop raining...! The first Games Day of the year is on Sunday. Given the fact that the horses have been heavily stalled as of late due to all the weather, and O hasn't been worked in about 2 weeks... ehhhh what could go wrong!
