16 April 2007

We had bitterly cold winds today, the temps were in the 40s but the windchill was around freezing (30 mph gusts) so I took Sonny and her baby out for a short walk this afternoon when it was reasonably warm. Sonny ate some grass and kept a close eye on her baby and he had a great time stretching his very long legs. His fetlock joints (just above the hooves) on his back legs are a bit swollen which I am going to have to keep an eye on over the next few days. He is so tall.

It should start warming up from tomorrow, I just hope the wind will drop because that made it really unpleasant today.

I am still struggling with flu like symptoms so am not feeling great. Hope you enjoy the pictures of the new baby, his name will be HOW D SPECIAL SONNY so I will probably call him Sunshine because his mother is known as Girl Sonny already so it would get confusing LOL.

((((Hugs))))) to all who need them, I am beginning to believe that I am never going to catch up. You are all always in my thoughts, Talj, MiKael, CG, Julie, Julie, Anne and Anne, hope you are all well.

Inquisitive little guy already. That's very cool. I love them when they're brave like that.

Hope you feel better soon.

I will have to teach you (and Julie)about the nuances of riding trail, then you wouldn't find them boring to watch or photograh. Really good trail pictures are hard to come by because most photographers don't understand what sets the horses apart.

I love him! Great blaze down the face and such soft little eyes. I like Annette's suggestion of "Taxes" That is a cute name.
Get some rest and get better soon.

[Sending you good health vibes, Lori]

I love his little face. I'd love to give him a hug. Does that sound weird? Hugging a horse? I dunno, animals make me feel huggy.

I'm odd that way.
