Default Good News, Bad News

In the interest of getting the bad stuff over first, mine for this weekend was that my oldest mare died yesterday. She's had some health problems for the last six months, but we did not expect her to go this quickly. We were trying to make arrangements to get her into a local vet clinic but because this is the one week of the big international horse event here in town, they had no openings. While we were trying to set up picking up medications to tide her over until Monday, she laid down and just went quietly. Valentine will be missed.

And now for the GOOD NEWS! Less than two hours ago, I looked out and our youngest mare was delivering her foal. All is well with Smoky and her colt. I named him "Kilmer" for a barn name, since I am not ready for another Val. Kilmer is big and strong and will be red - chesnut for most horse people, sorrel for Quarter Horse people.

Photos attached - and the mare has now delivered the placenta, so those who know what they are looking at don't worry.
