I wrote this on Tessa's thread, so just transfering it here with pix of the new foal! Lordy! My prayers have been answered! Very Happy

Andy was here for me and after awhile, asked him to help Momma out with getting this foal delivered.....it didn't take too much.....thank goodness!

Doc was just here and gave them both a clean bill of health Very Happy


It's kind of a long story about this mare Jeanie.

She belonged to the son of the man Jorge bought the ranch from, and was left on the ranch for Jorge to use whenever he wanted to. She is a wonderful cow horse! Probably between 12 a 14 years old. We have all ridden her out to gather cattle or check on them, at one time or another..

There is a stallion in the area who Jorge has trained several of his offspring, and he was very impressed with them, so he asked the boy who owns Big Momma (we really don't even know her name, that's just what I have been calling her) if he could breed her to this stallion last June and he said, yes.

After I lost my Babe last February, Jorge called the boy who is now living in Idaho with his Dad, if he would sell the mare To me....he himhawed around and said he would think about it.

Well, about a month after we bough Willow, he called and said he would be willing to sell the mare to us!

By then we weren't sure we wanted or needed another horse, so we just kinda let her slide. Then awhile back the boy and his Dad told Jorge that they would be coming back to Mexico in Septemeber to pick up some other horses of their's and would also get the buckskin mare, if the Jensen's didn't want to buy her. Well, then Jorge wash all concerned that he would have to wean the foal WAY too early if they did that!

We told the boy that we would most likely just buy the mare, but we wanted to wait until after she has this foal, as she is older and a maiden mare....he said, OK.

Soooooo, that's the Buckskin's story.

She has been here a week yesterday, as Jorge and his family all left for Mexico to get their visas renewed.

As you can imagine, I have gotten very attached to her, she is such a sweetheart and is absolutely LOVING all this lovin' and pampering!
Completely different than this old ranch horse is used to!
She actually walks up to me, and presses her chest onto me, as if she is hugging me, knowing I will give her some good scratches and massages.

I am getting up every hour to check on her at night, and watching her closely all day, it's very tiring, but I really want to be there for her, if she needs some help! and being a maiden mare she may not give me much warning!
It's nerve racking for for me, but very exciting to think about having a new baby!

I am praying that she has a textbook delivery!

Have alerted our traveling vet about having her here and he said I can call him if there are complications, but the's not close by, however, our dear friend, Andy, just lives 3 miles away, he was a vettech for a lot of years, so I can call him as well....... Which makes me feel a little bit better!

WOW Janell!! What a gorgeous pair! So how did the delivery go? It must be very hard to be hands off the baby Confused Buckskins are my favorite since Ben Cartwright!

Well, the delivery went longer than I was comfortable with, but Andy didn't seem concerned.

Poor Momma walked up to me two different times after getting up from pushing and looked at me as if to say, Momma I need help, I am tired and I can't get this baby out! Sad bless her heart, you can't tell me that animals don't think like that! We have really bonded this week, and it was just heartbreaking for me to have her walk all the way across that big area and ask me for help.

So finally I just told Andy that the next time she laid down, that we NEEDED to help her, so he took off his shirt ( reminded me of Dr. Poll ) and started pulling with her contractions, it didn't take much, but I'm not sure she would have been able to have the foal by herself.

This filly is such a little toot! She has a temper and was niickering before the bag was completely off of her! She is a little talker.

I think Momma has fallen in love with her. Very Happy
She is such a wonderful Momma, too!

I told her she wold NOT see anything of me tonight! I didn't close my eyes once last night, was going to take a nappie with the puppies
Ate this afternoon and got a lady calling about my shoes!

Heading for that wonderful bed SOON!

That is so exciting for you to have a healthy baby girl. Glad that both are vet checked and doing well. I am sure you will take good care of both of them. Enjoy.

Yesterday my daughter and family moved to a new rental home after staying with us for 6 months. She got a promotion that took her further away from us. She was driving almost 4 hours each day up and back to Allen. I am catching up on sleep when I am not taking care of critters. We have 4 bottle baby fawns so far this season. I will try to get on here more often now that I do not have grandkid duties. Hope everyone here is having a great summer.

Jorge and his family got home this evening and they couldn't wait until tomorrow Ro come see their baby girl! Doggonit I had left my phone out in the mule, so didn't get any pix, but Claudia and Taos did, so will have them send me some.

Well......I think the little darlin has already wormed her way into their hearts!
Jorge said that since she is a filly, that I could go ahead and love on her, she had already been giving Gramie kisses and I would occasionally give her a few good scratches, but I had been trying my best to keep my promise not to love on her.
So this evening she got LOTS of good scratches and lovin' from Jorge and the kids! Very Happy And boy was she eating it up! Laughing She is such a little doll baby and very friendly! Momma was real good to let everyone love on her baby..I'm so very proud of her! Very Happy as if ya couldn't tell! Ha!

She is such a beautiful girl. Please keep the pics coming as she grows. I hope to get more pics of my babies, but so far I am still trying to catch up. I have a long list of things to do such as trim hoofs, fix fence and lots of other farm stuff. Hope everyone is having a great summer. It is hot here, but we did get about an inch of rain today. North of Dallas they got close to 12 inches, wow.

Well, just found out yesterday that Momma will be hauled to Idaho in a couple three weeks. Sad

Punkin' won't even be 3 months old yet, but pretty close.

They will stay with us for another week, then Jorge will take them to his place and put them in his pens with Punkin's 1/2 sister who is a two year old and another young mare he is training, that are both gentle. That way when Momma is taken away, she will stil have her two buddies.

I am disappointed, but what can ya do, if they don't want to sell Momma....we needed another horse, like we need another hole in our heads anyway, but I did get pretty attached to her Sad
