precious little jennet was no problem for us to name. We had been in a “Tizzie” just waiting
for Valerie to have this foal. She had miscarried her last two foals so all eyes were on
her for this birth. We had put her up in the birthing stall Tuesday morning around 9:00
a.m. as we noticed some changes in her behavior and her anatomy. It was still a few weeks
before her due date but we didn’t want to take any chances with her. Thank goodness we did
because by 1:15 p.m. Valerie was in full blown labor. With baited breath Joe and I watched
until it was safe to enter. Valerie was delivering her baby with no trouble whatsoever.
What a relief!! She was a real pro with a textbook delivery.
In-A Tizzie described
me, Joe, and the newborn foal. She was up and ready to check things out in no time at all.
She was jumping and bucking as if to say, "I made it, I’m here, now show me the ropes."
We have laughed at her antics as she keeps us entertained with her constant energy.
Tizzie is the most unusual color sometimes looking mostly gray and other times gray with
brown tones. Whatever it is we love it and have never seen it before in our foals. She has
the smallest most correct little head which her sire, Beamer,
seems to pass on to his foals. We love her short, stocky body but adore her playful personality.
What a fun little girl!!!! Pardon her different shades of gray but it is due to the sun
going in/out while we were taking photos.
