Fenella at 3 Days Old

Fenella de Festina Lente was born Saturday, May 2nd, 2015.  My 16 year old sister, Savana, took these pictures for me on May 4th.

 Fannie grazing peacefully in the yard, with Fenella sleeping under her watchful eye.

"Hey, why did you wake me up?"

 "Time to get up?  Okay, I guess I will."
 "I'm always ready for a snack after my naps."

I have been handling her every day; basically imprinting her.

Picking up her feet...  I have heard too many stories from my farrier about young horses who go wild when it's time to trim their feet.

While she's still little like this, I can lay her down and rub her all over while she's on the ground.  The time is coming soon that I won't be able to do that any more!

I'm on my knees here.  I'm not squishing her, I promise!

My little sister, Anna-Frances, loves the animals, especially the horses.  She enjoyed petting Fenella.

See you later!
