Snow has been falling since early this morning but isn’t sticking much.

Obviously I can’t keep my eyes or my camera off of Kate and her little one.

But I’m justified in my concern and constant spying.

Patrick couldn’t find our fragile loved one this morning, and neither could her frantic mother and the other horses.

She got herself pinned in a tight spot and when I got the call, I came running and actually hurdled over
the fence to help .

Once we freed her from her confines, Kate whinnied, ran right up to her and they immediately hooked onto one another. The love and bond is so strong with these two. There is always the chance that mom will disown her foal if something rocks the boat.

It was very stressful but everyone is fine and together and momma Leah is watching over them closer than ever. But I’m watching from the window as I recover from that hurdle. I think I pulled something.

    What … the pictures causing me to cry weren’t enough?! You had to tell a story about Kate’s baby getting lost? *sigh* Thanks to you and Patrick for coming to her rescue. I am certain Kate shares the gratitude, too. I hope your muscles feel better soon. Your warm heart should heal them nicely. 🙂 Thank you so much for staying close and shooting pictures. I hope Poco and her filly are doing well, too.

      Oh Lenore I know!!! I was so panicked…and so was Patrick. He usually keeps his cool in the hardest situations but this one really scared him too. It’s probably because he knows how upset I would be if something terribly bad would have happened.
      Poco and her filly are great, they are in a closed pin. Kate hasn’t let us catch her for 2 days now, she wants to stay in the meadow but the snow is coming down pretty good tonight. I hope we can get them moved to the barn tomorrow but it doesn’t look like she wants any part of it. As long as she’s caring for the colt, that’s all that matters.
      Sorry to get you all stirred up. We’re ok now. 🙂

    Looks more like a Hallmark movie to me, they are THAT GOOD!

    Oh my gosh I would drive myself crazy with worry over momma and baby. Don’t they ever go into a barn to keep warm and dry?


    • leahyetter said, on February 16, 2012 at 9:14 am

      Actually no. Kate wouldn’t let us move her closer to the barn so she’s out in the pasture. And Poco and her filly are near a barn and they never go in it, even in the worst weather. They are so used to being outside that I guess a barn feels foreign to them or too enclosed, I don’t really know.

    I am in love with that little girl! She looks like a another special sorrel I once knew . . . So glad she gets to grow up knowing you!

    I enjoy all of your photographs. There are so many…I don’t look in any particular order…they are all so wonderful.
