A miracle is born

Friday March 31st,a new babe was born 3 weeks early to Merlot. Mom & babe doing well. Preston pictured here is 3 days old. He really had his mom hopping to keep up with him. After all his running around and kicking up his heals he flaked out in the nice warm straw. While mom got a rest and had some nice hay. It was the best day we have had yet. Warm, sunny and perfect for a little foal to kick up his heels. He loved it and so did Merlot. She enjoyed her outing with her son. What a photo shoot. Loved every minute. What a great mom. She nuzzled him, licked him, and when he started running she ran with him. Never apart. A mothers love.
I hope you enjoy looking at these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them!!

Pets are Family

Family pets

Never a dull moment when you have pets in the home. While I was in South Carolina in Feb. one of my little lovebirds Tia, passed away. Her brother Marley is still going strong thank goodness. They are 12 years old and she had some issues in the last few months. It was so sad to have that happen while I was away. Below she & Marley were inseparable. She is on the right. Marley looks a little scruffy but now his feathers are actually growing back in. He is a real sweetheart.
