A new arrival at the farm, cute as cute can be

Sunday evening saw the long awaited delivery of a foal to V's grey mare Jazz, the ex-showjumping resid
ent of the farm. The whole process took less than 30 minutes from initial lying down moaning to fully functional wobbly small horse, in pouring rain. At the risk of offending my lady readers, I can't really see why you make such a fuss about childbirth. Considering the size, number of legs and general sharp-edged-ness of a foal it seemed a remarkably painless process.

I've captured Bella's first faltering footsteps in a little youtube video. Click on the photo to play it.
