A Sunday morning surprise

I must say my photo collages of our 4th of July weekend from yesterday's post did no justice to the surprise we woke up to on Sunday morning. Let me take it from the top...

When I speak of this infamous "Frio River", you should all know that we stay at Beau's aunt's house. She has 4 houses there; 3 rental homes and 1 of her very own. (4 beautiful houses, I might add.) Between 3ish horses, 3 donkeys, 2 goats, 3 dogs and a couple cats, the woman is busy, to say the least.

She was heading out of town on Friday morning so it was kind of up to "the rest of us" (aka...the men) to take care of everything. Sure...we got this.  Friday goes by, everything's cool. Saturday goes by, everything's cool. As long as all the animals are alive and well, everything's cool.

Fast forward to 10ish am on Sunday morning. (Yes-I'z a snoozer.) We're all passed out upstairs when we hear Beau's cousin come upstairs and tell his wife that she needed to come downstairs because she "had extra duties to do". As any smart woman, she questioned him with these "extra duties" to which he responded "Get your shoes on. Angel had a baby this morning."

Skuuuuuuuuurt.

There aren't many things that can make me fly out of bed on Sunday morning but apparently baby horses are one of them...

"Angel? The horse? Had a baby? Angel IS the baby?"

I'll be darned!

I toss up my hair and walk my non-brushed teeth down to the barn...pajamas and all...(hey, horse don't judge) and SHORE ENOUGH...a friggin' bambino!

The most precious baby horse you ever did see all tucked up underneath her new mama. :)

I think it was safe to say we were all just as confused as this guy was...
(Sidenote: my husband dresses himself. I take no credit for this look...)

The craziest part of this all...Beau's aunt had NO idea she was even pregnant!

Can you imagine the phone call Aunt Frances received, halfway across the country, first thing in the morning when she picked up the phone and the first thing she was asked was "Who dropped off a baby horse this morning?" Which was then proceeded with her questioning "What baby horse?" 

'tis true.

The woman has grown up and raised horses just about all her life but had NO earthly idea her little Angel baby was pregnant. (Apparently Angel "got around" at training camp last year and sister got herself knocked up. Bet she won't be doing that again..)

The things that happen when you live on a ranch...le sigh...

  29. I can't believe no one knew she was pregnant and then she just had it and everything was perfect in the morning. People get so worked up over pregnant horses and stay up with them all night and make such a big deal and she was like "plop" here's a baby! It's soooooo cute!!!

  30. Wow! Stunning horse and baby horse is so cute :) Ponies for sale
