Meet Bella! She arrived over a month ago just when we were about to give up. Poor Ellie was so big that I started worrying she would have trouble foaling. After checking over and over again, Ellie managed to have this little girl when I wasn’t around. Isn’t that just the way it happens. She is darling and has a delightful personality. Right after she was born, I hurt my back so badly that I couldn’t go to the barn for 3 weeks or keep up with my blog. Since she needed to be handled and socialized, my husband, Patrick, took over for me. He did a great job. Bella is so friendly, that she chases after us when we start to head back to the house. Apparently Patrick is the best scratcher of all time as far as she is concerned. We have integrated her and Ellie back into the herd and everybody is getting along very well. The next baby due will be to Dora. She is getting big but definitely weeks away from presenting us with a new one. I’ll keep you posted.
Bella is brand new in this picture.
No wonder poor Ellie was so big. Look at those long legs and ears she was carrying around.
