This post, however, really has nothing to do with that. I just wanted to put out there that I prefer not to have mother/child pictures or whatever, but sometimes there has to be an exception. I love seeing baby tigers and baby lions climbing all over their moms. I think it's cute. But I digress. This post is supposed to be about a cute colt that was born 10 days ago. I'm not real sure the ownership situation, but that's okay. I got permission from the person who took the photos, Natalie Kilpatrick, to share her photos of "her" colt and that's what I'm going to do.
On Model Horse Blab, Natalie started a thread inviting us to guess the foaling date, time, gender and color of the foal. She told us what the colors of the parents were (I never claim to understand horse color genetics and breeds that produce color like Paints and Appies are even more confusing) and we could use that information to make our guess. I don't know that anyone actually came close enough to having all the right answers to win or if there was anything to win, but at about 4:30 on the morning of April 14th, 2013, little Jager made his way into the world. The following are pictures of him at a week old and, again, are used with permission of Natalie Kilpatrick. :) Thank you, Natalie, for granting me permission to use them.

Anyway, there you go. I hope you didn't die from cuteness overload. hehehe.
Have a great Wednesday!
