Take A Chance

Paint Girl has been sharing the details of adopting a Mustang filly on her blog, starting here. I got to go see the filly and her mother at the temporary holding place she is at, until she is weaned and arrives to the Painted Creek Farm. Which will hopefully be very soon!

There is something so special about a baby horse. Of course I had my Nikon and snapped a hundred photos, a least! Here are some of my favorites. I'll let Paint Girl tell you in her blog how amazing her visit was that day, but I hope these pictures show some of the special moments.


Baby feet.


Stuck. (not really!)

Liberty is in need of a trip to the beauty salon. Hopefully she'll find her special person soon. I wish My Boy needed a sister, but it's not in the cards for me right now.

Paint Girl's OH~ future Mustang whisperer?


Beautiful Liberty. Eleven years wild. I wonder what thoughts roam between those ears.....

Peek-a-boo! Don't you just love those fuzzy teddy bear ears? I mean, now do you see why this baby was so hard to resist?


Chance loves to give kisses!

Chance, meet clover. (Lovin' those wonky whiskers!)


Are you my mother?

A kind, gentle eye.

I think this little filly has a curious, calm nature, but I think she's got a little spunk in her, too! Paint Girl is going to have a good challenge and a lot of fun raising this little princess.

And I am lucky to have my first baby horse to photograph~ can't wait to get her cavorting around her new pasture!

  6. She's irresistible, and easy to see why Paint Girl feel head over heels in love with her! I hope Liberty finds a good home too... in spite of her rangy look, I think she's gorgeous. Wish we could afford a 4th horse, but I already freaked hubby out this past weekend when I told him I want another dog... a dal, which would be our 4th. I miss the dal I had years ago!

  8. She is so darned cute! Paint Girl is lucky to have a professional photographer around to catch these first meetings! You should charge her, lol! Oh, that's right, you are getting free board for your Boy! Fair trade I'd say.

  23. Oh, soooo cute. Love those little baby hooves. Yes, momma looks like she could use a spa day. But she is a beautiful mare all the same. Hope she finds a wonderful home.

  24. Lib has her special home...way up north next to the Canadian border! They're waiting for weaning, too...

    The photos are wonderful. As always.

  25. Just great photos! What a gorgeous little filly...she is going to be beautiful. I also love the mare's face -- captivating.

  26. You sure did capture the moments I'd say....great job! I love how they both have the white on the left side of their necks! I do hope Liberty can be adopted too...if I didn't already have six, I'd take her.

  27. I am so very excited for your sister! And yes, babies are so much fun!! And those nears, with their fuzz and those little muzzles with their fuzz....oh I just love 'em. You got some really wonderful pictures. I love the clover one!!! So cute. I wish someone would take pictures of me and my babies. You did a great job. And I can't wait to see what color Chance turns out to be!! Her mother is really calm and easy going for being 11 years wild. I was impressed with how OH was handling her and she wasn't flipping out. Very cool!!

  28. Hey! These are great! Family pictures! They are lovely

  29. O.M.G. She is just the most precious little girl!!!! Your pics are fabulous, really captured her spirit well. Paint Girl is going to have the time of her life with that little one. Since bringing my Piper home from the PMU rescue when she was just 1 year old there hasn't been a day that I haven't thanked my lucky stars for her. :)

  30. I finally got to see these photos! They are fantastic! What is your Boy going to say about the new little one? I bet he will be jealous of his mommy taking so many baby pictures. Still, your Boy's baby pictures were soooo adorable.
