Jellybaby is Here …

Horse: Jellybean - Unique V - May 16th, 2011

At 3.45 am on Saturday 14th May 2011 we were very very pleased to announce the safe arrival of our beautiful, fantastic, strapping, young colt!

We’d been awake for approximately a week by then –  checking on our mare every couple of hours throughout the night to no avail. However, saturday morning came and on the 3am check we knew we were in business – she was lying down something she has not done all week and panting! We decided to give her half an hour then go back and check on progress.

After 20 mins we had had enough of waiting and we went over to see her – she was back standing up and there was most definitely a foal on its way out!!

Within 5 minutes andwith  a little helping hand we had a foal on the floor and a mother pleased to see him!

Within an hour he was trying to get up and rapidly changing colour! By daylight he was on his feet and searching for his first meal! He eventually found it and is now doing fantastically well and is utterly gorgeous!
