I left pretty quickly anxious to get back to get pictures of this newborn filly and get the birth announcement out. Rhoda was busy cleaning the barn while watching them. Check out the pictures below of nice clean aisles
She has the halters on top of the new automatic waterers. They are separated by size and as soon as we get some bridle hooks will be hung on the wall. Tom is coming to install the waterers soon.
The aisle between the stalls was a disaster, she was cleaning out the tack area and wow did that hold a lot of stuff.
She took a break to help me get a few pictures of the new filly. She was born 9 days early but is very stocky with thick bones. The sire is Evan so she will for sure inherit the mega hair he throws with each foal. Sure hope who ever buys her will update us with pictures. This filly is going to be a stunner.
She is very strong for a newborn.
She has pitch black very curly hair and a very long tail. This filly is adorable.
Oksana is taking very good care of her.
Our next job was to bring in Roxanne and her colt so the colt could get his daily shot. The swelling on his neck is going down and he seems to be getting better but still has a cough. He stood pretty well for his shot then Rhoda led them back to the paddock. See how he prances. He just doesn't act sick but I sure don't like hearing him cough.
Sarah arrived and went right to work weed whacking around the round pen. She is due in a little more than 2 weeks. I'm amazed she felt like helping. I was tired all the time when I was that close to delivery. She came out to take care of Phil and Anna's girls but since she was helping Rhoda I met Braelyn's bus then picked up Taegan and Kensley from Grandma Gertie's house. They had a snack here then Sarah took them to the playground to play before taking them home for the evening. My last job was to feed and water Oksana and clean the stall. All is well for the night. All except Sangria. She was upset that we took Oksana and the filly out and called for her most of the day. Sangria is due in 2 days but her udder is still flat. Hopefully she will get busy and have her foal soon.
