Down on the Farm: Our New Arrival!

This picture was taken a few hours after this little guy was born.
One of the things I love about spring is all of the new things popping out all over: new spring grass coming up everywhere; snow crocus, daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths showing off their bright colors; buds coming out on all of the bushes and trees.  The list goes on and on.  But, the thing that tops them all is the new babies on the farm: baby chicks, baby calves, baby lambs, and new foals.

We have ran to the window every morning for the last week waiting for this baby!  Finally, he is here!  Mia, one of our mares, had this bay roan stud colt Thursday morning.  He has a perfect little moon shape on his forehead, inspiring me to name him "Eclipse."  Do you have any other ideas?  Let me know.  Maybe we can have a group vote!


  1. Awww! You were right about more horse pics! I think Eclipse is a great name!

  2. Just happend to find your blog. Love new babies too! Just had a new baby goat at our place!
