We took a quick trip this week from Florida to South Carolina to visit this little guy. He's just 7 days old in this photo, and we are part-owners. His mother Peaches was Jack's red roan Quarter Horse show mare for a number of years. When it was time for her to retire, he sent her to the farm of some friends in SC. They love having her, and enjoy riding her around their farm. Together we decided to have Peaches bred and to share ownership of her foal. In a year, he'll probably move down here to our place for whatever comes next in his horsey life. We're all still working on a name for him. His sire's name is No Doubt I'm Lazy. So something with "No Doubt I'm ..." Any ideas? But meantime, he's healthy, full of himself, and as cute as can be!
You can see that he's curious and independent. He was supposed to follow his mama into the barn, but took a little detour. She was just inside the barn door nickering to him. Soon he'll be led by his halter and a butt rope before he becomes too independent. A fun visit, even though I didn't get to visit the local quilt shop!
