Another miracle of life


Just like projects at work, the longer you wait on them, the bigger they get. Trixie Belle is one of our miniature horses who was slightly pregnant...


... and after months of waiting, waiting, and more waiting, she gave us this feisty little one. It is a colt (a boy for all of you city slickers) and although not very visible in the picture, he is an appaloosa (has spots on his butt for all of you city slickers). Mom and baby are doing just fine and totally unfazed by the recent fires. The colt weighs about 30 pounds and is knee-high to me. Trixie Belle is 34 inches tall at the last hair at the base of the mane (unlike all other horse breeds, minis are not measured at the height of their withers or shoulder for all you city slickers).
