Fancy That and Caspian
Well, as you all know, my beautiful baby had her baby! She was amazing and this baby is marvelous! He is definitely going to give us a "run for our money", quite literally. He is feisty and strong willed and he loves to run! He sometimes gets confused because he thinks both Krista and Fancy are his mommies.
Fancy's delivery was relatively smooth, though Krista and I helped her a little to get the shoulders through. From start to finish (water breaking to complete delivery) it was 10 minutes. that's a record, I think! While Krista cut the umbilical cord and dried him off, I stayed by Fancy's head and talked to her. She was very happy to lay still and rest, at that point. Then, we moved Caspian close to where she could see him and she sat up and marveled. She immediately began talking to him and licked him clean. She's the perfect mother (but then, what else would you expect from the perfect horse? :-). For more on Caspian and for photos, see Krista's blog. (There's no sense in posting them twice, right?).
