May 10, 2009 - Tequila has grown into such a handsome young man and is very level headed. After some round pen work, I rode him for the first time today. What a wonderful Mother's Day!
|Since Junior and Carmel were pastured together, we had no idea of the expected date for the new foal. I had been doing night watch for almost 2 months as mom started showing signs of impending birth early. She even started to wax over at least 4 weeks in advance. Unfortunately, I was not present when he was born, but found them about an hour later when getting ready to put her in the barn for the night. Tequila was already getting up and learning to walk as I put them in the barn.|
|At 18 months old, Tequila is already the same height as Dad. I suspect he will reach nearly 16 hands to match his momma's height.|
