Have been meaning to start this blog for ages, but time never seems to be on my side. Last night we had our very first miniature shetland filly foal. We had been expecting the new arrival for the past week! I'd been checking on Mum all evening on and off and no sign, then I checked her again about 11pm, only to find that she'd had her foal! It was a really magical moment, we woke up our youngest son to come down the stables, the eldest was still up watching tele. Harry was smitten and kept saying shes so adorable. We've named the foal "Athena", kids liked the idea of using greek god & goddess names. We have another foal due at the end of June, would be fantastic if we get another filly.
