The Birth Of A Colt, March 26, 2013 (Kelly Addiction, part 2)

Remember Kelly?  She is the Pryor horse that was removed last July during the bait trapping.  Shortly after she was adopted (by Lisa Friday) and moved to her home at Legacy Mustang Preservation, it was discovered that she was pregnant.

After Kelly’s pregnancy discovery, may of us became glued to our computers. You can read more about Kelly and this on going addiction by clicking : KELLY.

I, like probably many others stopped watching quite so faithfully as the days turned into months.  I silently wondered if she really was pregnant.  But as her tummy begin to get bigger and bigger, it was very apparent that she was.   Then I wondered if perhaps she was caring twins.  I hoped not, as the outcome for twins born to a horse is not often good.  I just hoped everything was okay.  I checked in on her once or twice a day.

This morning, the waiting ended, as Kelly gave birth to a beautiful black colt with a stunning white star on his forehead and a right hind sock.  He is beautiful.  I know all baby foals are beautiful, but for some reason this little guy just has more beauty.  Perhaps it is where he was conceived.  Wild and free in the Pryor Mountains.  Whatever the reason for my new love, I do know I will be following his growth.

Thank you Lisa Friday and Legacy Mustang Preservation for giving him a home.  I know he is in the best of hands.
