Foal Update

Foals change so fast! These are the ones from my earlier post, and already they are growing away and changing colour. This colt below is the one we named 'Paddington' because of his spectacles. He has already whited out.

This is the black filly I have been admiring so much. She too is losing her foal coat, and is looking grey beneath it. She is still very nice, but now, 6 weeks on, and into the hotter weather, it is obvious her dam has bad sweetitch, so there is a 50/50 chance she will have passed it on to the foal.

This is another favourite of mine - a mare I have liked for years. (you can see her pictured in my drawing for the WHOA sketchbook, at the top left of this blog). She has a nicely made filly foal this year.

The foals are gorgeous Danielle! I am enjoying your work and blog. Please pickup your "Passion for Painting" award from my blogspot page, it is well deserved. Bye for now...Ingrid =0)

They are so beautiful, Danielle, and growing so quickly. Thank you for the update; it's always lovely to hear how the herd is doing. x
