Our new baby.

Posted Friday, August 19, 2011, at 8:08 PM

 

 

3 days after we got to Cascade our little mare had this little filly.  I took these first photos the very morning she was born.  All the horse in the photos are a little wound up at the newcomer's arrival.  My old black mare, Mariah loves babies, so she wanted it for herself.  The buckskin gelding, Jax, didn't know that such a thing existed.... so little ya know.  We couldn't get very close to them, Mama (which Al has named Rose) didn't want to be touched, so these pics are from a bit of a distance.  Al named the baby Daisy, so I guess that's her name.

This picture won an award on "Outdoor Idaho"  I'm a bit proud of that!

Amazing how quickly animals become fairly self sufficient.  This little filly runs all over the place.

On one of my daughter's visits, she sprung up on the old girl, after checking her teeth, for good measure.

This is one of the horses that Katie did some High School rodeo on.  She has certainly earned her retirement.  Now she's a babysitter!

All the kids want to be close to the baby.

Al will probably be the first to ride this filly.

Each time we visit the baby, Al gets closer and closer to her.  This time, she did actually touch her.

This takes us thru about 3 months of the newcomer's life.

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
