Baby Boy # 2


The Blue Roan mare finally had her foal. Another boy! We woke up on Mother's Day to a new baby, can it get any better than that?

He's a cutie pie and looks like his big sister Earline. Earline is a 2 year old this year. They are both bay roans. Last years baby, Shirley, is a blue roan like the mama.

Now once again we are faced with the name dilema. When Earline was born Kelly said her name is going to be Earline. Her daddy's name is Earl. That was simple. Last year when we had 2 babies and they were both girls we kicked around all kinds of combos. Lucy & Ethel, Thelma & Louise, etc, etc. Then one day Ned said how about Laverne & Shirley? That was it. They were the perfect names. Laverne is the taller red baby and Shirley is the shorter blue roan baby. I've said for a year now that we needed Lenny & Squiggy to go with Laverne & Shirley. Now we have 'em and nobody wants to name our handsome young men Lenny & Squiggy. Yesterday I suggested Bo & Luke ( the Duke boys from Dukes of Hazzard) That was ixnayed before I could get it out of my mouth good. If it had been a boy and a girl I was leaning toward Ty & Chelsie! Funny huh? By the way, don't forget to vote for them tonight on Dancing With the Stars. okay, back to boy names for horses. Leave comments with all your suggestions.... Don't leave comments about the quality (or lack of) of the photos. It's really hard to get good shots of a mare and baby that just aren't that into it! You're kinda chasin' 'em all around the place.....

To help you think I've added baby photos, of course! Enjoy!
