We had no idea six months ago when we purchased Lightning that there was a baby inside!!!
A few months ago she began to grow… was she overeating?
Could she be expecting? No. Probably hopeful thinking...
Yesterday she began showing some interesting signs… Labor?
It was about to storm last night so I got up and checked on the animals one last time at one in the morning. What did I find?
A miracle! We are so excited to announce that Lightning gave birth to STORM… It rained and thundered all night but the little girl (filly) is fine and nursing… And you can imagine the excitement that our daughter has (the one who saved up for three years for this horse)! She originally wanted to purchase a baby to bring up and be hers from the beginning but we told her to start off with a trained horse first... She ended up being blessed with both!
The pictures are taken in the middle of the night which is why they are somewhat dark ~ I just had to share about our latest addition!
"Hast thou given the horse strength?
hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?"
