NO SMALL SURPRISE
Isn't this the sweetest thing you've ever seen? This little bundle of joy is Bonnie Blue. The proud parents are Rhett and Scarlett (who else?). My friends Sandy and Larry bought a mini horse but sadly he was gored by the bull and killed. They were devastated!! When they were ready Larry and Sandy bought two more mini horses and named them Rhett and Scarlett. Not ever owning or even coming near horses of any kind ( I mean they just got their first dog not too long ago) they weren't aware of the changes in Scarlett. One day a friend came over who is some kind of horse doctor to visit the new couple (the mini horses) and said "she's pregnant and about to drop". Before Larry and Sandy could have her seen she dropped. Larry was just going out to check on her and there she was Miss Bonnie Blue. As Sandy tells it it was love at first sight. Larry was completely smitten. He takes pictures of her every day and posts them on facebook like a proud papa and Sandy the proud grandma. I went and visited the little princess and she is the cutest little mimi horse I've ever seen. I rubbed some apple on my hand and she sucked and licked my fingers. Mama was always close by and watching, she bit Sandy already.
It's amazing how quickly they're up and running. I wonder what my friends will be like when they become real grandparents. These photo's were taken by Larry Slater and you can see his collection here.
