A New Crop

For us, the last foal of the season was born this week.  He is a beautiful bay colt with the lovely head and eye that typifies him as an Arabian horse.  Gainey Arabians has had a long hand in the history of this colt.  We bred his mother, his father, his father’s mother, and his grand-parents–five generations in all. 

Breeding animals is the closest thing to divine creation I can think of.  It’s thrilling to see the result of deliberately pairing too creatures, especially when that result is outstanding.

Meet his father:

And, a photograph of his mother in the field a day before the new colt was born:

And, six hours after he arrived:

Now, the fun of watching him grow.  A new waiting game begins.
