Hello, Honey

Today I went to visit the local Clydesdales because there was a new member of the family I was very excited to meet...


"Mmm, yummy..."


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.


Another attempt...



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.
