Our First Foal, A Filly!

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?"
~ Job 39:19

If you have a horse loving daughter then I recommend these items:

Excellent Reference Book

Wholesome DVD


  1. Oh, what a wonderful Christmas surprise!

  2. Thank you! We are so delighted!!!

  3. The pictures are great! And I'm excited for your daughter--what a great experience.

    Our neighbors bought their daughter a horse and ended up very disappointed to find out that she was pregnant and couldn't be ridden for competition. They've also been frustrated that they can't seem to sell the little one and their daughter is about to go off to college and they don't know what to do with her.

    Prayers that this ends up being a great blessing for you all!
