Post Darkmoor Da Vinci - New Foal
After going close to 3 weeks overdue our mare Jessie has foaled us a gorgeous black colt with 4 white socks.
We have named him Da Vinci, the birth happened at 2.30 am & he was up and drinking within the hour which is excellent.
Jessie is being an excellent mum!

We are very glad he arrived without much trouble and relieved we'll get a full nights sleep tonight! It looks like we might have about a week off before we need to put a foaling alarm on Lexie.

Anyway, more pictures...

A young colt's favourite activity - peeing on mum's hay! Our last one did it too - little ratbags!

His first time with a halter - he was very chilled about it

Being this cute is exhausting!
