Title: Piper
Post by: Carly Rae on September 15, 2017, 06:58:39 AM
I'm back from my holiday 4 days early, I just had to get home to see our new little one!  ;D

I finally got to have a play with Snickas' new baby Piper, she will be a week old tonight at midnight. She is a very energetic little girl, and I look forward to getting to know her better, so far I've had to bribe her with scratches to get close to her  ;)

I still haven't been able to spend much time with her yet as I got home late, but I had enough to snap some pics for you all to see!  ;D

Such an interesting butt!!  Can't wait until she blows that long foal coat and we can see what's hiding there!!

I agree with Diane, those white spots are MIGHTY suspicious....they look like appy spots.  I noticed them first thing in the original photo you posted before leaving on holiday.  She looks like she's going to have the typical redhead temperament.  Be prepared, your easy horse days are over! LOL

You guys have me excited!  ;D
Although not so excited for the "easy horse days are over" haha! I sure hope not!  :)

She is warming up to us now, and she sure doesn't mind to come right up and lay all over you!

Piper became very skittish for a while and to even get a slight touch was rare as she would just run away as fast as she could.

I found it easier and less stressful just to bring her and Snickas into a small pen when I wanted to interact with her, now we cant keep her away from us, and approaching her is not scary for her anymore even out in an open space. She is also great with her halter.

My Uncle and Aunty came out today with their daughter Lily, who is already crazy about horses, to meet Piper. They were adorable, especially since they are the same height! When Lily is a bit older, my aunt is excited to have her ride Kevin since he is all trained now  ;D

Oh and this one, she strays off from mum to make her regular visits to her big horse friends through the fence.  ;D
