Happy Birthday Bucky!

One year ago yesterday my phone rang, it was my friend Johnny calling and saying "We got a foal". I made the mad dash to his farm to see sweet Salina Star and her first foal. This little video shows the foal getting up for the first time. At first Johnny thought the baby was a filly but later realized we had a little colt. I called him "Bucky". He was the sweetest thing with his little afro mane. I had meant to post this yesterday to honor his birthday, but oops forgot, anyway it is still special.I was able to help take care of this little guy until August when he had to go to another farm in Ohio. I miss this gentle yearling very much. Enjoy!


  1. I love little foals...they are so wobbly the first time they stand. What amazing creatures. Happy Birthday, Bucky!
