What a beautiful foal! Looks like he has unique markings on his stockings. Gorgeous mare as well. Congratulations!

RE: Succulence Born ~had to share!

Thank you, greybird kk! His front left in particular has a unique look. We're having a hard time figuring how to describe it. ;)

RE: Succulence Born ~had to share!

Very cool. Such a nice looking bunch...flora and fauna! What is the name of the new born? And what is the name of the last succulent?


 o
RE: Succulence Born ~had to share!

Thanks, Reggie! We haven't decided on his name, but hubby is leaning toward Cisco (like the Kid).

Last suc is Kalanchoe streptantha before it croaked in the 07 freeze. Yale has been a sweetheart, sending me some of this, that I sent to him all those years ago...if I recall correctly. :P

RE: Succulence Born ~had to share!

What a cutie. I could just kiss his little forehead!

RE: Succulence Born ~had to share!

From your post title, I thought his name was Succulence! I vote for Cactus Jack. If it was a girl, Agave Maria.

:) Laura, yes...kissable...if only Mom would let us near him!

Ha ha, Nancy...sorry, title name was just to allude to the subject of this half-OT post. Those are both great names! LOL Hubby is not a fan of C&S, tho. He had me calling him a "her" for the 1st couple hrs, so we figured he better hurry up w/his name. Last night it was decided...definitely Cisco! =)

What a great way to start the day--looking at your sweet, gorgeous new "big" baby. Gotta love that baby face. Mom looks very proud, indeed.

And TJ, thanks for the laugh :-)

RE: Succulence Born ~had to share!

Glad to be a good day-starter for you, notolover! Thanks! Yes, Mama Zana is proud AND protective! She's an excellent Mom!

Our other mare, Saffron is due late next month...so I'm sure I'll be posting MORE succulence/succulents! =)

RE: Succulence Born ~had to share!

Thanks, Hoovb! =)

Okay, I've never done this before, here on the forum...but worth a try...a short video clip of the youngster. See if the link works...will someone please let me know? Otherwise I'll try to embed...if it's allowed.

I think if you click on the photo, it will take you to the clip (½ minute):

Thanks for letting me know it worked, Rina! I appreciate that.

Thanks, Ryan! We think so too!

We were out this morn taking MORE pix & video, having moved them back yesterday to the "mare motel" with our other pregnant mare, Saffron. Had to make sure they all got through the "scary" night okay (colt in new environment/space/noises, protective mom vs. PG mom, etc.).
