What a gift !

A few days ago Hubby and I were driving home from the store. I was looking at the honeysuckle blooms. And taking in the view. We were just passing the elementary school and the road where our new farm is locatedI looked to see the horses in the field.
Next thing I do is say, STOP. Hubby was like why. I said turn around and go back to the horses. It looked as though there was a deer on the ground it was a red brown color. I thought. Why would a deer be in there on the ground ?
It was not moving at first. To my surprise it was not a deer.
I did not have my camera with me that day so I went back today to recreate my story in photos. I could not believe it could happen. The baby horse was on the ground again. As we were on the way to the store. And on the way back the next 2 photos. Were taken. Now I know who the MOM is on mothers day.

This was quite a gift for me.I did not see it born but I saw it almost brand new.
I think the white one is an Arabian horse, And Mom is a Pinto.
Can you can tell I am a city kid with a country heart ?
