    I Have A New Baby!

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by SonnehLee, Mar 20, 2009.

    After 11 long months, the baby is finally here!

    My new little girl, Patty B, arrived today at 2:16 p.m.

    She's a beautiful foal. Pictures to come.

    Ha, well my baby was. I can't believe she's a mom now. It's a bit surreal. I remember her being that size! And now, she has Patty. :)

    She's gorgeous! That's great!

    I ride too, my friend has her own foal who's nearly a year old now.
    And there'll be another one next year :D

    She's an adorable baby..:)

    Did you see her getting born? I mean I saw the birth of a calf once, and it was great seeing it. Just wondering.

    I love horses, I have never had one and probably never will. I'm very jealous. She's so cute.

    I didn't get to see her birth, I was about an hour late. So, she was just starting to stand when I got there.

    Ahh lucky you
    When Herbie, my friend's foal, was born it was bloody traumatic cos the mum was so stressy she nearly broke his back
    And he wasn't breathing, so for a bit her dad kept saying 'he's dead' til we found a pulse...then he got pneumonia soon after and nearly died o_O

    One lucky boy!

    I wish my phone wasn't dead at the time, because I really wanted to make a quick video of her little wobblers.

    Congrats on your "baby". Are you keeping her or selling her?

    In other words, we are keeping her.

    Look at that cute face! How could you *not* keep that?

    (Also note that the spot looks like South America.)
