Texas has her foal on her due date!

Well this is a first! Texas was due on Monday with her very first foal. We have been watching her closely as signs can be subtle - maidens don't always follow the "rules.  Well, that is putting it lightly! No signs, zip, nadda!  I went down to the stalls at 840pm last night to do a final tidying up - and as soon as she saw me, Texas laid down and started pushing! A few minutes later, the smallest foal we have had at PPHFarm was out and taking in the world!  Texas is a great mom!

Here is a teaser picture that I took at 4am. We are having rain today so pictures for our web site probably are a few days out.

Remember the TV ad, "WeAdaBabeeEatsABoy"?

Well..... Precious made us crazy with the white milk, not white, white again and finally 6 days later....... He is here!

The little guy is un named at this time, but wanted to get a picture out.  He weighed 20 pounds and is 22-1/4" tall.

FOAL WATCH! - Precious to foal first!

Precious Penelope Poole (PPP) has decided to take the lead and is on foal watch today. As of  630am today Precious had 2%+ milk.  The baby is not in position yet so I think we may still 24 hours or so - but who knows! Mother Nature has her plans!
