At about 7 am this morning LaLa made her grand and much-anticipated entrance. Mama went past her due date by more than a week, but I guess we should not have been surprised, since her previous two foals were also born on April 24th. Now LaLa shares a birthday not only with her full sister Princess, but with her half-brother Bugs.
I am filled with gratitude that she is healthy, but also so tickled that all my silly wishes came true. I wanted a filly. I wanted color. LaLa is the whole package. She's perfect.
I haven't settled on what to register her as, but her barn name "LaLa" got stuck in my head about a month ago. I suppose its a good thing she's filly, that would be a horrible name to stick on a colt.
Welcome to this great big world, little filly. You and I are going to have such fun!
Special thanks to Michelle who let this mare have just one more filly before breaking the mold and for letting her be mine.
