Jolie at Three Months

Well folks here she is:

The first time she tried this move, she landed on Kitt's back.  The uh oh look on her face was priceless. And then she got stuck and couldn't quite figure out how to get down. After receiving the "stink eye" from mom, she managed to wriggle off.  The whole thing was so upsetting, Jolie had to nurse for reassurance.  I don't know who reassuring it was, because Kitt turned around and bit her twice on the butt.

Here they are playing follow the rope.  Tommy is pulling a rope and the two of them had their noses to the ground following it.  I know Kitt looks skinny.  We're doing everything we can to fatten her up.

Running fast and I do mean fast.

More later, have a good week.


  1. Wow, she's huge, and gorgeous! Kitt doesn't look TOO skinny, but it's good that you're feeding her up now, 'cause Jolie will pull a lot of weight off her in the next few months. 2nd cut hay if you can get it, free-choice when she is in her stall, and even offer it to her outside, that pasture looks like heaven but at this time of year might be more filling than nutritious, depending on how it's been maintained.

    What a lovely pair they are, and your new barn looks like paradise!

  2. She's getting all of that plus a new high fat grain. She seems to be putting on a little weight, but it was shocking how fast it came off.

  3. She's big! Very pretty! Try those Purina pelleted feeds, they have a 'fat' nugget in them and it works!

  4. Maia, I am privatizing my blog due to ongoing drama (for a while at least). I would love for you to continue to read it, in order to do so, I need your email address. Please email me at Thanks!

  5. Wow, you must be loving every minute of this foal. She sounds like such joy!
