I thought i havent posted about April since she was born a month ago and now we have May 5 weeks later.

April - She was 5 weeks old on Wednesday and is becoming cheekier everyday. She is so independent, i have never seen a foal like her she only interacts with mum if she wants a drink or wants to play but she often plays by herself. shame we didnt have anyone born around the same time.

May: Is 3 days old today. Took some of her yesterday out in the field. Her mum is friends with one of the others mares who is in foal but we thought for the first couple of times we would only let mum and foal out but star the mum went crazy for pearl the other mare so we put her in with them and she was so good. May tried to drink from her but pearl walked away.
Out in the field bless her. You can see when she walks around outside she isnt as strong as she looks, she is still really wobbly

Pearl: She is my favourite out of the 2 broodmares pearl and star. She is soo lovely. Cant wait to see what her foal is like. I want it to be a black filly but i think it will be a bay colt as we have had 2 fillies all ready. Dad is the same dad a May and Welsh D. I think May being born has helped move things along a bit because the foal is now more active inside where as before she was born the was nothing and she is getting more milk too. She is also getting bigger too.
This is Pearl a month ago when we figured out we got the due dates really wrong. We thought they were due end of June not May.

If i had the money and the confidence and time i would so buy this mare. I did lead her in yesterday which is a massive achievement for me :D
