The young colt's first outing

Young Annie, Lizzie's foal in the realm of the Mount - her baby coat is changing to glossy black

Yesterday morning was perfect for our new little colt foal's first outing - warm and sunny with a gentle breeze and occasional scudding clouds.

April was careful to keep the little chap close beside her to explore the world bu already his feet are twitching to gallop and prance and so I can see Aprils waistline rapidly diminishing as she races after him, here and there about the field.

Today was distinctly different though with heavy rain falling over Breakfast time and so we brought the mares and foals back in soon after Breakfast and Artemis (That may be his name) is now curled up sound asleep in the straw.
