Welcome To The World
I've been seriously absent in the blogosphere lately, but for good reason! Vida foaled!!
I took Vida, my 2009 JC mare who was slated to be a FEI Eventer but sustained an injury, to my in laws to foal out a few weeks ago. My in laws breed race horses and have been at it several decades, so I felt most comfortable with watchful, experienced eyes on site when the time comes, and though things went relatively smoothly, I'm glad I did.
I'm sure everyone just wants to see the adorable photos so I will save you the long story of the days leading up to the big event, and without further delay, welcome to blog-land you sassy red head! Her barn name is "Amara" (Ah-Marr-Ahh), and will be registered KWPN-NA as Ostara BRR (BRR = Brookside Range Ranch is our farm name). Ostara is the wicca Goddess of spring.
Amara was born at 2AM on Friday, April 19th. She has a big blaze, white bottom lip, one big stocking and when she was wet when she was born it looked as though she had a small amount of sock (coronet/half pastern) on the left hind as well, but time will tell once she darkens up. Vida is doing well and has been a fantastic first-time mama!
Amara is sired by the KWPN Stallion Parcival, and she is for sale but i'm waiting a bit to actively post her. She still looks like a big ol' bowl of spaghetti so until she grows into her legs a bit i'll just keep snuggling her! We are currently working on learning the lead. She's very bright and saucy, but looks like she will be a good size and a pretty fancy girl in any ring!
