Our dear filly, Isabelle, sure has grown up in the last few months! Here she is, at 7-1/2 months old, catching up quickly in size to her mother, Annabelle.
Remember her as a newborn in June, just a few short months ago?
Mom Annabelle has decided that baby Isabelle has nursed just about long enough and now pushes her away when she attempts to nurse. Baby Belle is quite happy to gorge herself on grain and hay and really enjoys romping in the pasture with her Mom, and our Dapple-Gray Percheron, Vinny.
She was definitely “feeling her oats” on a recent, brisk day when we turned her out after too many snowed-in days in her barn, alongside Mom. Isabelle was quite happy to kick up her heels in the snow, as you can see in this video . . .
