Well, knew Taff was getting close as the positioning changed slightly and the edema was quite heavy. I don’t have any good pics of that. Then on Monday (sunday nite/early morn) Larry came home EARLY and curled around me (!!). I woke enough to wonder what/why and he stated that he hadn’t been feeling good & I was back asleep. UP at 4:45 when alarm went off and out to do chores after a cup of coffee. About 5:30, here comes youngest daughter down the drive – she’d brought oldest daughter to her home as she was violently ill at work. Into the house to talk to her a bit, get ready for work and I hear one of the granddaughters “cough/gag”… What a fun day of cleaning up and washing laundry – boss not happy I wasn’t sick but asked for day off. Monday eve – I felt off. Tuesday morning was the real start of mine. So, off again. Did do chores both in the AM & PM. Taff hadn’t changed any from over the weekend. Lots of butt rubbing.
Thru the nite I was still sick, then passed out. Larry took my phone (alarm) and texted that I wasn’t coming in… & I slept until almost 10… Stumbling around, I hadn’t even checked out the front door (can see Taff’s pen) yet when Sierra arrived home after meeting. “YEP, we need to go out, grab camera/phone – pretty sure we have extra legs”. I groaned trying to keep up with her as my tummy sloshed…
BUT Taff had a SUPER NICE colt! Looks to be a silver bay tobiano. We’ve named him “Nymbus”… Took a bit, but we cornered her sorta, caught the colt and then actually caught her as well for a little bit. She was fine after we caught the colt and he couldn’t run off w/o her – she left and immediately came back to see what we were doing with him. She was alittle upset, not bad. I think this may finally be our opportunity to get some work done with her! We shall see.
Nymbus has his own page here – NYMBUS
O, and he has two little round testes right where they are supposed to be!! We CHECKED, LOL.
