Belle is one month old!

Baby Belle is one month old today! Both Dixie and Belle are doing well. Belle is growing like a weed and Dixie is staying at a good weight.

At one month old, Belle is a very active foal who loves to run. She is starting to experiment with solid foods, stealing grain and soaked alfalfa cubes (her favorite) from her Mama, trying to eat grass and hay, and is super curious. In her first month we've dealt with a lot, as she struggled to pass her meconium, then on day 10 had urine coming from her navel and had to be on antibiotics and have her temperature checked multiple times a day for several days. She's extremely active and loves that tree so has had a couple of scrapes that we've had to watch. But she's a happy, active, healthy filly that we adore!
