Somersaulting baby!

Today, I felt the foal kicking! Well, it was really more like a somersault! I took Stormy out for a ride just to exercise her while I can. I stopped to talk to my uncle for a minute and just ran my hands over her belly. Around the 3rd time, I decided to feel under her belly. So I placed my hand under her belly, just left of her navel and then it happened! The baby went to jumping as though it was trying to escape from the feel of my hand! 

That feeling never gets old! To feel the presence of life, of growth! It's all a wonder and a beautiful part of raising horses!

I look forward to seeing a very active foal on the ground in May!
