Phoenix springs a surprise!!!!!!

Meet our new little foal......




We had a huge surprise on Wednesday 27th April 2011, when Phoenix our sweet little New Forest mare gave birth to her adorable colt (pictured above).

We didn't know she was in foal, but was beginning to wonder if it was possible as we couldn't get the weight of our 'fat little native' and over the last couple of weeks we noticed changes in her teats. 

We arrived at the yard to see the proud mum standing over her newborn foal, having managed everything herself.  Both mother and foal are extremely well, he is very bold and inquisitive and Phoenix is proving to be a great mother. He doesn't have a name yet, so have a look at some of the other photos on our Facebook page and give us your suggestions.

Hopefully he will soon have a playmate when Hollie has her long awaited foal, which is expected in the next few weeks.
