What the world needs now is a sweet, sweet foal...

We need one of these.
We can't stand the waiting game much longer.
But of course, this baby is on God's Time.
Not ours.
I want to walk in the barn each morning and hear the little, baby nickers
coming from Miss D's stall.
I want to see that tiny muzzle (with the cutest baby whiskers!)
poking through the stall bars.
I want to peer into those beautiful, dark eyes.
I want to witness the first outing of mare and foal,
as they venture outside to their paddock.
And the big, beautiful world greets the foal for the
very first time....
I want to congratulate Miss D on a job well done.
C'mon Miss D...Everyone is waiting for the big event.
This morning I received this email from my Aunt Debbie:
"We're expecting rain today but tomorrow & Sunday supposed to be nice. Hope it's same for you. Would you mind going in to the barn and yanking that baby horse out of Miss D? Thank you. "
Love, deb
Dear Debbie, I will get right on that!
Love, m
Our lovely vet has been checking on Miss D this week.
Mother and baby are both fine.
The foal will arrive....
when it's time.

This county I´m living in has more horses than any other county in this little country of mine. So all summer I pass new born foals on my way to work :-) They are truly adorable!
Have a great day now!

it is so hard to be an anxiously awaiting baby mama! I will keep my fingers that all goes well for Miss D and her foal. Can't wait to see the baby pics!

I feel your pain because I am waiting for Miss D to foal too!! :-D I'm glad to hear all is well, and it will be a wonderful celebration when the Blessed Event occurs!! Barn Partay!! :) -Tammy

I can't wait to see the photos of that sweet baby! One of the best things about moving to a country area is that we now have friends who have horses. We are catching the horse bug big time. I wouldn't be surprised if we get one once we find the perfect piece of land to build our house on. My husband has already fallen in love with a horse named Hala (and she's for sale!)

Hugs to you today,

Hi Misha!

I have been enjoying my visit to your beautiful farm and enjoying all of your beautiful photos.

I hope Miss D delivers soon and all is healthy.

It is so nice to have another blog friend and I'll be sure to be back soon~

When I saw the thumbnail on my blog I thought Miss D had her foal.
Oh well animals are somewhat like
human babies they come when they are good and ready. Here's hoping soon!


Donna said...

Maybe the foal will come tomorrow! Can't wait for pics on the "baby". All of your animals are adorable.

Alisha said...

Hi Mischa,
Thanks for stopping by too. We loved your blog. We were "ooing" and "aawwing" at all the pictures of your furry babies. Thank you for being a kind hearted family that rescues animals. My family had horses in Brooklyn, NY when I was younger. They have such a special place in my heart. We can't wait to see the pics of Miss D's foal. Talk to you soon.

I'm celebrating a new grandbaby, and you'll be celebrating a new foal! Babies in any shape are wonderful!

Oz Girl said...

Everytime I come to visit your blog, I wonder if I'm going to be greeted with the happy news! Not yet I see. I think half of bloggyland is waiting for Miss D to have that little bugger.

Hugs to you, hope you're having a marvelous Sunday!

Love your blog!! I had to move to the city (one that doesn't even speak English) from the mountains of Montana. It's temporary- thank goodness, but I'll keep reading your blog to raise my spirits.

I wonder if this long awaited foal has any idea just how many people are anxiously waiting their arrival!

Be well! ~Andrea~

Came across your site in a round about way thru Cow Patty Surprise - your beautiful pictures and foal picture caught my eye! Your area is really beautiful and similar to my Minnesota but way more hilly - Mountainous... I'll have to visit again - I'm anxious to hear about the new foal!

Nothing cuter than a baby horse. Those incredible long legs. Can't wait!

Cheryl and Carman said...

I haven't been on in a while I'm surprised no baby! Good luck! I'll be back to check...

Cass @ That Old House said...

Oh OUCH -- yanking that baby out of Miss D? ... oh dear.

When that baby does come, I hope you aren't too busy to get pictures. Video maybe? I love "baby" horses. Who doesn't?

I eagerly await the birth announcement.
