In the picture below the colt was nursing for the first time since he lost his mama 8 days ago,
Sally is nuzzling and licking him as if she had just given birth. We were a little afraid to take her off the lead rope hardly believing it could really be this easy. She is totally in love with him and won't let him walk out of sight, following him around as if he was a newborn.
Our next mare due is Rosaleigh. She has a full udder and is waxing but not testing yet where we are worried that she will deliver today. She is actually due July 7th but it is not unusual for a Friesian to deliver 3 weeks early so we are prepared. We took a few pictures of her today for the website. She is due in 25 days and we hope she will hold off for at least a few more days in hopes this hot spell of 90 + degree weather will break.
IF you would like to see Evan in person, come to Expo Gardens in Peoria, IL. The show starts at 5:30 pm with roping demonstrations for the kids with the main show starting at 6:45 pm.
