Annabelle’s foal surprised us my making her entrance into the world a little sooner than expected! She is the most beautiful, perfect, spotted draft filly with lanky legs, beautiful, long eyelashes, and a skip in her step . . . all in her first day!
Annabelle is the MOST PERFECT mother, catering to her young daughter’s every wish . . .
Of course, timing is everything and when I got the call early Thursday morning that our new baby had arrived, I didn’t believe it at first. I was also heartbroken because I was hours away, giving an educational workshop. Even though school was out for students, it wasn’t for me and I was dying to bond with our new baby. I dashed out just as soon as I could and spent the next 2 hours in the barn, just admiring this work of perfection! She is so perfect, it is almost surreal!
We’re still searching for JUST the right name for her. Under consideration at the moment are: Isabelle, Belle, Beauty, Rosabelle, Belle of the Ball, Cinderella, probably all preceeded by Rose Farms’ ___________. It’s a difficult decision to agree on! Any thoughts?
To see more pix, skip on over to our Rose Orchards site. Abbie and I have taken hundreds of photos of our new treasure in the first couple of days and will post more soon, as soon as I return from barn to admire her some more . . .
