Welcome, Waylon!

Waylon nursing.jpg

Waylon, Polly's third baby, arrived on Saturday, April 13th, 2013. This colt is her biggest yet and it took a bit of effort to bring him into the world.

Some mares like to give birth in complete privacy, but Polly seems to like having a cheering section. Last year she gave birth while my three-week old son was at the ranch for his first visit. This year my sister Ali Kish was there to give encouragement, and Quinn and I arrived a few minutes after the birth.

In this photo Waylon is nursing for the first time. When our vet arrived to check on everyone, she commented that he looked like he was already two weeks old!
