It’s a boy!!!

Early this morning in the predawn hours our filly gave birth to her second baby. An absolutely beautiful stallion who’s father is a Spanish Pasafino. The baby has the most beautiful graded coloring with a white blaze on his face. We brought a special breakfast to Lluvia and a bucket of fresh picked guavas. The other horses were fed at the trough, but Lluvia did not want to join them. She is calm, but protective of her baby. I was surprised to see she let her daughter, the yearling, sniff the newborn colt.
