Tuesday's Tails - 05/21/2013


Our friends' mare foaled last week and I wanted to share some pictures of the cute little colt, Max.


Max's dad is a pure black, registered Percheron named Bismark, (I forgot to take pictures of him) and his mom is a registered Thoroughbred named Duchess.


Duchess

Our friends have had Bismark since he was a colt and he was a Dressage horse, he's retired now. They have used him as a stud several times over the years because of his sweet disposition. Bismark is now getting pretty old and they wanted to have one of his babies to carry on the line.


They bought Duchess off of Craigslist last year. She was in pretty poor shape when they picked her up but they got her back in good health and then bred her to Bismark. Duchess is approximately 17 hands tall and Bismark is 18 hands.


Mix is only 11 days old in these pictures, he's gonna be a big boy! He has been handled quite a bit in his young life and he kind of thinks he's a dog or maybe a people! I have seen a lot of foals that always stay on the far side of their mom and won't let anyone approach them. Not Max!! He wants to be in everybody's back pocket, even if he's never seen you before! :)


It was fun getting to go spend some time with the little guy and I look forward to future visits!

What a beautiful colt. He looks so lovable.

Awww, he's adorable. Foals are so awkward looking...all legs and such but so darn cute.

Susan said...

What a beautiful colt - and what a glorious pairing! Sure looks like your friends brought Duchess back to top form. Thank you for the dose of horseyness - it's good for the soul.

Candy,
I think in the last week we are up to 1.30". All smiles around here.

One more day of moving pairs to grass and we can kick up our heels. For a little bit anyway.

The third and the last pictures are my favorite!

Awww, so cute! If Duchess was poorly a year ago, they did an amazing job of bringing her back to health and beauty, especially carrying a foal most of that time as well... Thank you for joining in 'Rurality Blog Hop #15' Hope to see you next Wednesday for #16...
