Atticus eating supper

...yes, very exciting, I know!  But tonight is the first night he finished his dinner without deciding he was bored and wandering away before it was all gone.  I brushed him all over and picked up all his feet, and he's just as sweet as can be!  His mane is so fluffy, I was thinking of putting it in pigtails.   But I wouldn't want the other horses to laugh at him.

The new colt has arrived!

Atticus, my new colt (3/4 Friesian, 1/4 Quarter Horse) arrived yesterday from Wisconsin!  He will be one year old come August. I could not be more thrilled with him!  I bought him based on a video taken over the winter, when he was 5 months old and quite fuzzy, and now I see that he is very elegant and will grow up to be a gorgeous horse!  He has a very floaty trot, and that lovely upright Friesian neck.  He's black with a star and snip on his face.  I can see already that he will have the lovely long, thick, Friesian mane.  He also has little baby feathers on his feet!  I'm very excited to watch him grow up.

Teddy seems to have adopted him!

Mom came over to be here for his arrival... here are her Facebook posts on him!
