July 28, 2016 - Welcome to the world
little one. At 2:15 am on July 28, 2016 Prospect's Vienna dropped into the
world. A bay filly with a small white star(I think) and two back white socks
(same as Amelia). Delivery was stand up because we had to move Duchess as she
was delivering against the wall. By 3:00 am baby is walking and nursing.
Prospect's Vienna - by Vantage (Viva Voltaire) out of Duchess (Deutschmeister).
A beautiful Bay filly.
July 29, 2016 - Prospect's Vienna - 1
day old - first time in the Arena. Still wobbly and needs to unfold.
July 31, 2016 - Day 3 in the Arena for
Vienna and she is really getting a hang of her legs.
August 1, 2016 - Day 4 - First time
outside for mommy Duchess and the little Vienna - electrified the fence to keep
the other horses away and Duchess was pretty good at keeping baby away from them
August 6, 2016 - Big day for our 2016
foals as they spent the day together for the first time. Such a big
difference in size - 3 months to 9 days. Duchess was very sure to tell Amelia
that Vienna was off limits for now but things settled quickly. Amelia understood
and Vienna stuck to her mom. It was great to see them out there together.
August 7, 2016 - During our lesson
today Vienna decided that she had enough of the small paddock and went through
the vinyl fence without her mom. So we decided that they would all go out into
the big pasture. Everyone seems pretty happy out there.
And some video
