Our newest addition

How cute is this little guy?? He is such a sweety. :) He was born Wednesday evening. Looks to be a little preemie as he is small. As planned, we were there when he was born and stayed right there as we weren't sure how his mom would be as a mom. She had a foal last year that was badly deformed and only took a couple of breaths. She put her hoof on it's heart, so we weren't sure if that was just animal instinct, or if she meant to be mean. Anyway, we decided we needed to stay right with her until we knew how she would react. After about an hour, it was obvious that this little guy would not be safe with her, so we had to separate them. So, now he's my bottle baby....although I think he thinks I'm his mom :) He's flying around the stall already and it was hard to snap any pictures as I'd run to one side of the stall and before the camera would focus, he'd be right in front of me again. LOL!! After trying to snap the pictures, he decided it was time to eat again...think of the movie where the baby says Lunch. LOL! Can't remember the name of it :)

Now, I' sure you're wondering why I have this picture of my finger here. The strangest thing happened! While feeding the little guy, some of his mother's milk got on my hands. In less than a minute my middle finger started to swell. It became purple and full of edema so that I couldn't even bend it. There were no cuts on the finger to let the milk get under the skin. I came in and washed it, iced it and even put some Benedryl spray on it. I'm assuming it's an allergic reaction to the mother's milk, so now I'm using a plastic glove on that hand just in case. It's still swollen this morning and even more purple than it was yesterday. Hopefully, it goes away quickly!

May Cherish and Imagine Club projects

I absolutely love the new X7126B Passages My Reflection Level 2 kit. We're using it for our May Cherish Club. I love how we can rotate the pages in Cherish and Imagine and create a totally different looking layout.

Special Order

This is one of my latest creations. With the internet, it's so easy to find photos and sketches to draw from. I think I'll branch out now and do a jumping horse. It's horse show time locally with two of the biggest horse shows of the season, so I need to get busy and tackle a jumper. Who knows if it will sell or not, but, I won't know unless I try :)

Pippy LongLegs

LOL! Not sure what her official name will be, but this name suits her well :) She's a sweety and so laid back. She needs a good brushing off on this picture!
Not sure if it's something in the water, but, it seems like it's a filly (girl) year! We've had two fillies and our daughter has had 4 fillies and one colt (boy).
