She's here!

This has nothing to do with knitting, or spinning, or weaving, or dyeing, or really any sort of fiber. Too bad!


This lovely filly was born a couple weeks ago, and she's a dandy! Saying a newborn is cute is redundant, but true. Here she is, about a day old - already contemplating hay. What IS this stuff that mom chews on all the time?



And this is about a day later, out for a romp in the arena, getting mom her exercise as well.

She likes to jump things, but I didn't catch any good photos of that. She's a Davenport Arabian, and if you'd like to know more about this bloodline, this is a good starting point - http://www.davenporthorses.org/history/ . Homer Davenport, who imported the ancestors of these horses in 1906, was born in Silverton Oregon!

Hurray for babies!

Adorable foal! And I love the look in Mama's eye.

Did you know that over on ravelry there's been quite a discussion about your Swirl Pullover? Someone found a picture of it but not its origin, and that set off a detective hunt. And we found you!

You might want to print some extras of this pattern as sales will probably go up. I want one myself. :-)

So is this beautiful pair yours? Thanks for the link; I had never heard of Davenport Arabians before this.

Oh! She's a beauty, and look at her diamond.

I have a soft spot for the Davenport line since having a sweet, do-anything-for-me gelding about 15 years ago.

Hope you survived BSG in good shape.
