It's certainly not getting any cooler these days and we had our first big thunder storm late last night. Lightening was slashing all over the bay, the waves were beating the shore and bouncing the surf miles high, and the wind had the palm trees bent over asking for forgiveness.

Seems like the perfect time for a long overdue mare to foal, huh? The Mexican owner said the mare was due at the end of May and we believed him since she was obviously carrying a load of watermelons or a nice foal. The baby didn't come at the full moon. The baby didn't come at the new moon. The mare acted like everything was fine just leave her alone and she would make the calendar choices. Finally last night with the heavenly fireworks and the people safely tucked in and not paying any more attention she said, ok, now is the time. I guess the owner forgot what month he bred her.

Can you imagine this baby is less than 12 hours old?!

Mama is a good 15.2 or 15.3 hands.

She's not mine to name, but I think June Monsoon is fitting.

And Bella thinks she's still a baby and should have all this attention too.

Bella is a big baby! I just love her. I can't get enough pictures of Bella. The new addition is very cute, and I like the name "June Monsoon." It is very catchy.

That is a nice name. If I was the owner I'd use it, and she is adorable.

Poor Bella, no one can compete with newborns! They're just so sweet. But you're right , this one is huge.
