She's Here

She was born at 8:00 tonight and was standing 1/2 an hour later.  Tommy filmed the whole standing up so as soon as I can process it, you'll see it. When we left, I figured Kitt was getting nervous about us continuing to stand around flashing camera's and petty the baby, she had pretty much figured out the nursing.  She appears to be strong, smart and healthy. Knock wood. 

Her name was going to be Shiner's Jolie Dancer, but Tom and the teenager who delivered her, decided that she should be called Shiner's Jolie Raven. Oh yes, I had to go home at 7:00, I figured she's never have her, if I continued to sit under the tree, pretending not to stare.

Oh yes, on her father's side she's a direct descendent of Doc Bar and obviously Shiner and on her mother's, she's a direct descendent of Old Tom Cat and AQHA Grand Champion, so I can hardly wait to get started with her.  But the most important thing is that she's here and she's seems to be healthy.  Now let's all keep our fingers crossed that she inherited her mother's dear disposition, because in the end that's all that counts.
