New Life

I had a real treat this evening riding my bike. A pasture with eight mares, four of which had just given birth. The other four looked like they were due any minute. I think the white foal might be an albino.

The battery ran out of juice on my camera, but I will go back tomorrow. Maybe even get to film a delivery.

    I was just at Assateague Island and hung out with a couple of beautiful pregnant wild horses

    I have a Hen sitting a dozen eggs in the Chicken Ranch. With my wife’s grand daughter coming out next month we will but another dozen in the incubator for her to watch hatch.

    Unless you ride late at night very very early in the morning you may not catch an actual delivery, but this is not a hard and fast rule.
    My mare gave birth about 5 months ago now, be prepared to pull out the afterbirth, take some surgical gloves with you lol it’s an amazing experience.

    I can’t make out the pic too well but unless the little foal has pink eyes, it’s not an albino. The mares look like paints or variants thereof, they’ll often throw white foals.
    Thanks for the pics, they’re beautiful, I love horses, got a dozen on my property.

    Nice. But I heard your nemesis bearing down in the background. Watch your back.

  5. Yikes! CO2 is making horses breed like rabbits!!!

    Not an albino. A very light paint like mom. You can see the color change on the neck. Not a newborn, probably a month or two old. Nice butt too. Wife has some, but don’t tell her I learned some of this stuff or I’m in trouble. She thinks I completely ignore her while she yammers on, some noise still gets thru the filters…

    Yes, he’s right. It’s not an albino. Also, those foals were born about 3-1/5 weeks ago. I DRIVE by them almost every day. Good luck catching one delivering. They always seem to appear the next morning. Thanks for the pics!

  8. What do these horses do? Help in cattle ranches?

    • Your Namesis says:

      They look pretty and attract a lot of voyeurs in the springtime. The guy sells the babies every year to make room for more.

    Last time I rode a horse it tripped on the side of a rocky hill and fell on my leg. It was a unique experience for me to see how gently a such a beast could raise itself back to twice my height to proudly carry me home. All jockeys and in fact all knights in shining armor were short guys like me. I noticed that at the Met and Cloisters museums. You should post more personal antidotes, to fend off the constant claim from the mealy mouths of fascists that skeptics are monsters.
