Remember Oakie? When her sister Tia came home to the Little Valley from the Homestead Up North, Oakie took up residence at the Homestead. Susan's parents have foaled out a few mares there. Did you know I've never seen a foal being born? None of our mares have ever been pregnant.
At 7 am this morning, Pa went outside and what did he see in the corral, against the backdrop of misty Bruce County scenery?
Oakie and her brand new baby. He figures she was less than an hour old by the time he found them. I'll always be amazed at how these little guys get moving. They're born to run. They really are. Look at those legs!
Look at those floppy little ears! Look at that gorgeous white blaze! Those long legs of hers are almost crossing each other, but they don't! She's so cute!
