So the long awaited foal arrived. He was mentioned in the previous blog, a day after Rosie was foaled, He and his mom are the last photo in that blog.
Mom, Toad Hill's Kibbles N Bits, is a 33 inch, dun pinto mare foaled in 2003. This mare should have been registered AMHA too, but I decided at the last minute not to bother registering her. This colt is her third foal, the first is Toad Hill's Grapenuts and the second was a sorrel colt named Brownie by his new owners. The sire is Toad Hill's Rust Spot (Pedigrees at end of this blog.)
For now I am calling him Lincoln (Link for short). To the right is the photo that will go with his registration papers. Seems like all the foals this year are very friendly, coming up, wanting to chew on me and be petted. Link reminds me of another horse we own, Stetson. Like Stetson, Link is very a very flashy dark sorrel.
Link is a long legged colt, but with a sire who is 32 inches and mare at 33 inches, he should stay in that range when fully grown.
He is bright eyed, curious, full of energy and a lot of fun to watch as he chases the other foals around the pasture.
