A month old

By popular demand, here are some updated photos of our sweet new foal Romany Ruby Smudge. For the equine geneticists among you, or simply those interested in the family networks of our herd, she is the daughter of Nova, granddaughter of Duchess, niece of Rascal and Elara, half-sister (through sire) of Promise.

She's looking a little dark here because she's wet from lying down in the soft morning grass.

Front view ...

Rear view :-)
Nova's a placid, gentle and tolerant Mum who is caring without being over-protective. As a result, Ruby Smudge is learning to come when called and can already be touched and stroked all over. She's quite friendly and curious and is quite simply a delight for us to behold ...
