I'm going back in time for a bit to get caught up.
These pics take me back to the day Rip and his dam came home from the fancy maternity barn. We brought them home on Feb 27 (I think) despite there being a nasty snow storm in the morning. We checked the weather and it looked like it was clearing out by the time we left with the trailer. Luckily the plows were out in full force, so the highway was in decent shape.
Rip and Lucy loaded up no problem and then we were on our way back home. I have to tell you, I was super nervous having a foal in my barn. I've never handled a foal that much and now I was responsible for one! Yikes! Lol. I think that first night I went out every 4 hours to make sure Rip and Lucy were ok!
|Night check the first night - everyone is fine!|
The next morning, I was texting my friend to tell her they were fine. I shared every detail important to a horse person: eating, pooping, drinking.
|Rip wondering who the human is that is looking in his stall every 5 minutes|
|Who are you people and why am I wearing this outfit? Rip, probably|
