In any case...this weekend was supposed to be my first hunter pace, which unfortunately was canceled due to the wet ground. Bummer :( Hopefully we will get to go off the farm and do something soon!
But I wasn't too bummed because we have a new baby on the farm as of 12:50 a.m. this morning!!! He is a TB colt, bred by a friend of the farm who is a racehorse trainer at Charlestown, WV.
Interestingly, the owner of the farm (who foaled him last night) thinks he will mature to be gray with black points rather than bay like he is now.
|Sort of hard to see but he has eye "makeup" and adorably fuzzy ears!!!|

|Everything is fascinating on Day 1|
|Well, it's OK if we snuggle.|
|BABY BABY BABY|
AND more exciting news...Byron's first riding lesson is tomorrow. Should at least be entertaining because he bought this insect-like monstrosity to put on his head:
He thinks it looks like a skateboard helmet. Sigh...
