Presenting “Bailef’s Windsong”

Presenting “Bailef’s Windsong”, originally uploaded by elefanterosado.

She kept us waiting nearly two weeks, but finally delivered the goods. Early this morning I heard my husband shout one word from the barn: “FOAL!” And there he was indeed, all wobbly legs and fawn-like body. Mama had obviously had her delivery in the early morning hours. He began licking the walls when he became hungry and had to be body-hugged by my husband in order to be persuaded to try his luck with mama. Cleo, a first time mom, seemed not to understand that she could really help her son out by *standing still.*

Windsong is a Welara foal out of the Spanish Arab mare WCR Estrellita and by the Class B Welsh pony Flying Diamond The Bailef.

A happy day in Westminster, Vermont.

Congratulations Cleo! She’s a beauty.
Must have been incredibly thrilling to wake up to such a sweet little face.

Thanks. He is a sleek, beautiful little fawn. And, as Jamie’s babysitter would say, fond of “raising the dickens.” He loves to gallop off, with mama in hot pursuit.

How’s la vida in Spain? Hope you’re having great weather, safe travels, and that the dollar is strong.
