A slightly early surprise...

Spring (my mom's little mare I've been training this summer) decided to have her baby a little early... I was hoping she would wait until she returned to her home in September, but apparently yesterday afternoon was the appointed time for this little filly to grace the world with her presence!

When we got to the barn, Spring had already given birth. However, the baby was VERY new (just minutes old). We helped the baby stand (she couldn't get any traction on the rubber mats in the stall) and moved her outside where she met with more success. In this video the little filly is about an hour old. Now we just need to figure out a name!!
