Kids of all kinds!

Greetings from Elkhorn Creek Ranch near the epicenter of the Bakken Oil Formation!

I love kids!  Moreover, I love watching kids and their parents in the never ending chess game of life.  It is really fun stuff.

Some of the funnest kids to watch interact with their parents, the equine variety. 

The little guy below was born yesterday night about dusk.  He was a big baby and today he was enjoying the extra leg room his new environment has to offer.

Our foals started arriving this past weekend.  We leave our horses to be horses and the mares foal out in the pasture.  When the new babies arrive, it takes a day or two before the mares will let you up close to them and their new bundle of joy.  Today was a good day to get close to them and check things out....

There are three on the ground, two left to go.

    1. Thank Cindy. Glad you got to see then. They just amaze me. They get up with those long legs within 15 minutes after being born and from then until weaning mom and baby are a tight knit pair....
