Thursday 18 June 2009 - It's a Boy

Relief, I can stop worrying, for about 2 seconds LOL. Sonny had her baby sometime in the early hours of this morning. It is a little boy and it is raining so I have them in the old barn which is pretty dark so havent been able to ascertain if both eyes are blue or just one. We are going to call him Herbie as his barn name and he is a little cutie pie.

Everything that is working is working great so I can relax for a bit. When I can get them out to take some decent pics of him I will but this will have to suffice for now, taking a nap in the straw. This will be my last baby and it is unfortunate that there is only one again this year because they so do need to have other little ones to learn from and older horses too, so I will probably not keep him and momma separated like I did with Taxes and her and the other horses, because I want him to be more sociable. Needless to say I will be asking the vet to make him a gelding at the first opportunity which will be far less traumatic for him now than later when the surgery is more involved.

Looking forward to lots of photos and all the details on this little guy. So glad things went smoothly.
