Eleven long months of waiting and we have our foal! She is less than 36-hours old in this photo, and ready to embrace the world. We named her Tahlequah and have nick-named her “Tilly” for short, although she will have more names when she is registered with the American Paint Horse Association. Her sire is a beautiful black and white Tobiano paint, and mom Tia, although a solid color, was sired by a great sorrel Overo paint. The joy and excitement of breeding a paint is the surprise package of color and variation!
“Tilly” is quick and nimble and is going to be a very active foal. She was only hours old and trotting around the pasture.
Ah, lunch time. Mother’s milk is the sweetest, most nutritious nectar of life.
