When farmer Pat came to do chores this morning he found an extra body in Thunders stall! You could say we had a Thunder Storm during the night...at least that is what we are tentatively calling Thunder's new foal (name of a baby horse or pony). You can see Thunder is still cleaning the new arrival. Storm is a colt (boy).
Being so young Storm still has wobbly legs.
This is the proud pappa (stud). Prince had been rolling in the muddy pasture so wasn't so happy I took his picture. He's very handsome once he's brushed. You can see where Storm get's his good looks from.
This is Farmer Pat spending time with the new arrival. It's called imprinting. This way at a very young age the pony learns to trust and like being around humans. I know Farmer Pat really likes being around Storm!
