In case you have been in a hole this week, my pretty, gray mare, Streakin Iron, or Sonora (Nora) as she is known, had her baby! It’s a baby that was due May 23, but wasn’t born until May 31. I must say, I am beyond excited about him. He is by our stud, WDX Nukem which means he’ll be gentle, trainable and friendly. That’s a trifecta if you ask me! And for those of you wondering, he has a 50% chance of turning gray.
This colt has been affectionately dubbed: Frigidaire, or The Fridge. Hence, the title of this blog. Those of you that are old enough to remember Refrigerator Perry, will recall that he was Number 72. I believe I may register him as Number 72, and just refer to him as The Fridge. Zach decided that would be a good name, because just a few hours before he was born, we had a new refrigerator delivered, and of course My Cowboy just thinks he’s funny calling him that. I give him points for creativity.
And now because everyone so patiently waited for photos, here they are, with a couple of my dirty papillon, Higgins, thrown in just for good measure!
