Today I went to visit the local Clydesdales because there was a new member of the family I was very excited to meet...
This Colleen's new filly foal, called Honey.
It was pouring rain outside but thankfully Colleen and Honey were in a nice, dry stable.
Born in the early hours of Monday morning (the day of the spring equinox, no less), Honey is still adjusting to those legs.
Thinking about a drink...
She is such a cutie.
A bit of a poser, too, when it suits her.
"One day I'll be this big..."
Honey's best shake-of-a-lamb's tail impression:
Mummy Colleen is very proud of her new baby.
She is a curious foal, but not quite huggable yet.
After almost an hour of skipping around mum it was time for a nap...
...or not! Honey couldn't seem to settle in one place for long.
I love Colleen's little smile here as she stands over her baby.
She has such kind eyes.
Meanwhile, Honey was on her feet again - but she was really tired.
One more attempt at a nap.
There we go. Sweet dreams, Honey.
A huge thank you goes to Dairylough Clydesdales for letting me visit the adorable new arrival.
