Not quite four hours ago, around 8:35 p.m. (Eastern time) Friday night, Daughter’s PMU rescue mare, Jolie, had her foal.
I was a little disappointed that I wasn’t at the house in Hooterville at the time so I didn’t get to witness the birth but Daughter emailed me one of the first photos of the foal, taken right after she was born.
The picture was taken with a cell phone so the quality is not very good but I’ll get more photos this weekend and share them in a few days, along with the winner of my blog birthday giveaway.
EDITED TO ADD 2 NEW PHOTOS THAT WERE JUST EMAILED TO ME:
I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 44 years. We have one beautiful and precious daughter, age 35.
After more than 37 years in the workforce, I was fortunate enough to be able to quit my job in 2007 and stay home. As a natural born homebody and "nester," this opportunity to be a full-time homemaker has brought me immeasurable contentment and happiness. I thoroughly enjoy spending each and every day in the cozy comfort of "My Cottage of Bliss."
About the "House in Hooterville": In October 2009, we bought a 30 acre horse farm in a small country town approximately 45 miles from the city where I have lived my whole life. Join me, a city girl through and through, as I try to simultaneously adapt to country life in "Hooterville" and redecorate the 1978 brick ranch-style house on the property into My (new) Cottage of Bliss.
