New Foal

When I woke up and went for my walk early this morning this is what I saw. Sorry about the tree on the back of the page coming through and this is why I dont draw my ponies, I do a woeful job. Any way Rivington Nell Welsh Section B had a filly foal this morning, chestnut going grey by Panteg Gambler's Luck Section B. Her first foal. Not the one I was expecting to see either, her half sister Nancy has been bagged up for weeks and yesterday was wandering around looking uncomfortable while Nell was happily grazing, Nancy is a lot older and has had more foals so is not as easy to tell when she will foal, we run the mares with the stallons and although we have aproximate dates you are never quite sure and like humans they can be 3 weeks early or 3 weeks late.
I am not moving more than I have to as the ripped muscle in my side is giving me curry.

I'm so sorry to hear you're in pain but I'm so glad you drew your ponies. I LOVE this drawing and it's even more glorious with the tree coming through, which adds lovely pattern to the page.

Lovely to see your horses and don't worry about the tree background. You have so much wealth of subjects to draw and paint.
You are a good reminder to us who dwell in cities that there is a whole rural culture out there.
