Woke up this morning, ready to drag myself to Maribelles indoor to see how Desi was doing, and saw this note on the counter;

'Desi had a bay colt! 1:15 a.m. Placenta looked normal. Foal had umbilical iodine dip. As of 2:30 a.m. he was standing, walking and working on nursing. Desi has taken to him nicely. So, as of 2;30 colt has not yet nursed or passed meconium yet. Yay!'

How cool is that! I haven't had a chance to talk with her yet this morning ( hopefully she sleeps in) but from the sound of the note I think she got to see the foaling. I headed out there, and saw the lovely little boy. He is tiny! Can already tell that he will grey out. Has a stripe down his face and a little chrome on his legs.He's drinking and gaiting! Desi seams quite pleased with herself.
