    This mare (now named Sylvie) was confirmed pregnant on Valentine's Day. She just had a BEAUTIFUL baby girl on Sunday night, named Terra because she was born on Earth Day =)

    This baby is just too cute not to share with everyone, and Sylvie is being a wonderful momma bear.

    Yes they are now.

    What a beautiful family!!
    This reminds me of my friend's story. Purchased a mare from a "feedlot" (CBER - 2005), had her shipped to OH. She arrived skinny. Early the following year, my friend found out the mare was indeed in foal and she delivered a beautiful filly (now almost 6). Sadly, the mare passed from complications 5 weeks after foaling.
    It is amazing that your mare could retain the pregnancy as well and that she gave you such a beautiful filly.
    My friend was able to get in touch with the breeder who gave her all the certificates to have her filly registered (TB) although the mare was culled as barren!!!
    Enjoy!

    Mare and foal are both gorgeous. Talk about paying it forward. You took a chance on the mare and now you have two lovely horses!!!
