    Roma, due a week ago, had a gorgeous, leggy foal this morning. The baby is already standing, suckling well, and the vet reckons is in great health. Olivia acted as midwife (!) and mother and baby both seem very happy (-:

    really cute, what is the babies name.... cant say they look alike .

    The mother's called Roma, the foal is Rosa.

    According to Olivia (my sister, Roma's her horse) foals aren't born grey, and Rosa's likely to grow up looking more like her Mum than she does now.

    Roma did more work, but Olivia had been sleeping in the box next door in the stables for 10 days, waiting for labour to begin, and is quite glad to be back in her own bed, I think!

    Is she a Percheron? I miss those days of sleeping in the barn on foal watch, and seeing the foal struggle to stand, then cheering when it finds breakfast!

    Nothing lese like it.
