Rocket and Somara got to spend some time in the field today because Rocket's pasterns look even better. Lydia says that Rocket is tougher to work with than her quarter horse foals because she's got the stubborn gene, but that you can really see her brain working while they handle her. They're beginning to teach her to lead. I'm not surprised she's stubborn and independent - so is her dam. I like that, though. I'm stubborn and independent, too.
Also, Somara loves being a mama. Mom said she is so happy and nurturing but not hostile about people handling her foal. I'm delighted. Here is a cute video of her looking pleased with her baby.
And some photos of the day, with one more super adorable video at the end.
|I know I left that needle around here somewhere...|
|How did that baby fit in that mare just a couple days ago?!|
|Holy mackerel. She looks like a draft horse.|
|I'm glad my mom likes horses because this is the closest she's getting to a grandchild from me.|
