We had another beautiful healthy colt born at 4:45 this morning!!
His birth was a little traumatic...the normal presentation for a horse is both front feet coming out first (staggered 3-6 inches apart) and then the nose. Well, we only had one foot coming. It took a little while, but I was able to go in and find the other foot and pull it out. God was definitely there with us and this little colt is so special! His little left front foot is especially precious to us :D
Any name suggestions? His daddy’s name was Steam Roller, and he died last July. This is his last baby... The name has to start with “I Am” (since we’re I Am Ranch) and so we’re thinking something like “I Am Steam Roller’s Last Dance” or “I Am Steam Roller’s Last Thunder” or something along those lines. Ideas??
Enjoy the pictures!

|Our "chefs" (Mrs R and Anna) made a wonderful breakfast of biscuits and gravy (with watermelon!) that we enjoyed out at the barn.|
|We're tired...what else can we say? Well, actually, we're pretty goofy even when we're not tired.... *chuckle*|
