The vegetable garden

We had a foal born this morning and I wasnt fast enough to get them together and as this was a first foal Mum wasnt keen on letting her child nurse so after we had given the filly a drink I sat outside and watched her for an hour or so to see if she could nurse on her own. So I sat in the vegetable garden and sketched what was there while keeping an eye on what proved to be an uncooperative mother.
We got her into a yard and made sure she had a drink every 2 hours until she could drink on her own and without her mother knocking her out of the way.
A much better prognosis than the last foal and this is a gorgeous filly.

What an unusual story as viewed from a veggie patch in the garden. Looks like foal and vegetables are flourishing. I hope so anyway.

Congratulations on the foal. Hope momma cooperates. Nice drawing :-)
