Earlier this year I did a post about Awesome Acres – the horse farm owned by a long-time friend and former work colleague. You can read about it here.
At the time, Cathy had just acquired 2 new miniature horses and one of them, Caly, was in foal. I was asked by some of you to provide an update when her little one was finally born.
Caly gave birth to her tiny filly at the end of April. Welcome to Applebrook Pippin’s Envy … or just Pippin.
The new mama has been highly protective of her foal so Cathy can only guess what the little one weighs – currently thought to be about 60 lbs.
Besides her tiny stature and over-the-top cuteness factor, Pippin has extraordinary blue eyes.
The 3-week-old is a frisky bundle of energy running and hopping around the paddock. It was extremely difficult to take photos of Pippin as she was almost always in constant motion.
She’s also teething and wasn’t at all shy about chewing on our shoes.
Only in hindsight did I realize I should have been taking video instead of stills.
