A Foal, A Foal.....A COLOURED Foal!!

This morning Cules was up before me and went outside to see if any new lambs have arrived...yes, lambing time again!! He checked on the dogs and the poultry and  as I was busy making the bed etc I could see him doing all these "normal" everyday checks...he was forgetting to check up on the pony mare due any time now,she has been "bagging" up for three days now so I brought her in a few days ago. I called out to him through the kitchen window to go and check up on her and sure as ice cream melts in the sun, seconds later he came running round the corner of the stables shouting "a foal,a foal, a COLOURED foal!!!"  Well that's a first for us..not surprising as the Mommy is also coloured.




I feel a little less wobbly if I press my butt against the wall..
..like this...




Hmmm, he never searched too long for the milk source....
Clever boy




Taking a nap...
