About a year ago, Seth accompanied me to the barn on a cold, snowy day. We fed Sprite, checked on Santana and Mahaganaska's filly and were just starting to head home when we ran into the barn owner. She asked me if I could do her a favor. Of course, I said yes.
"Catch the cremello mare," she said. "I need to breed her to Awesome."
So, I caught the cremello mare and held her while Awesome did his thing. As we were leaving the barn, Seth remarked that it had been a very strange visit.The day before we left for Texas, I had a talk with the cremello mare.
"I know you're overdue," I told her, "but please wait until I get home to have this foal."
Baby boy Dunnit was born while we were in Amarillo.
James and I visited him yesterday.
He is precious and just the color everyone wanted him to be.
The cremello mare is a good mama. I guess I'll forgive her for having him a day early.
Nefertiti didn't wait for me either.
Her filly was born just four hours after the colt.
Three down, one to go. I hope James and I will be here to witness the next one!
