(Thank you Donna, for this precious announcement!)
Ain't I precious! I'm Prissy and I'm all legs. My mom and dad are both Tennessee Walking horses. So I will grow up to be tall and ride smooth. When I run, my tail goes up straight in the air. It's bred in me.
I fell into this world from the comfort of mama's warm womb on Friday evening about 8:00 pm. There was a crowd of onlookers gathered around the pen. They watched and cheered as I kicked free of the bag. They seemed to struggle with me as I tried to get to my feet and step far enough away to break the cord. There were smiles and laughter. I heard four wheelers bringing others down to stop and see and greet me. Someone brought mama a bucket of feed.
I liked smelling mama. I liked rubbing against mama. I knew if I could just find the right spot she'd have something good waiting for me. A couple of hours after I was born, the spectators wandered away and it was just me and mama.
Mama patiently told me try again, as I nuzzled behind her front legs to no avail. When I went underneath her looking she gently stepped over me and re-positioned herself with her hind quarters near my nose. She did this dozens of times, until almost by accident I bumped something hard and found wet upon my nose! I licked. I shook my head. Oh, wow! And I dove back under to find again that liquid meal.
I saw the sun yesterday for the first time. I ran for the first time. I heard lightening and firecrackers. I felt raindrops upon my back. So far, life is good. Life is being by mama. Life is naps near her feet. Life is a small little girl coming and wrapping their arms around my neck and telling me "I love you Prissy."
Today brought visitors. New faces at the fence. Looking. Comparing me to my dad. Comparing me to my grandfather. Bragging on my mama.
I can hardly wait to see what tomorrow brings!
