Our dear little Remington… ok, not so little.. Remi turned NINE, today!!!
On May 16th, 2003, Squall delivered a healthy colt.
My friend, Erin, helped with the delivery as she’d been a part of many more foalings than I had. John was working and the next day was very excited to meet the new addition. Later in the day on the 16th, John took this photo of Remi.
Remi was the first foal that I’ve bred. He was so special to us. John printed out photos and his mother, Ann, himself, and I all took photos to show our new addition.
These days, Remi, isn’t so little anymore… I’m not even sure what he sticks at, I quit measuring my moose after he got to be 16.1 1/2 out measuring both his dam and his sire. He wasn’t quite the 15.2 tri-color filly that I was dreaming of, but we love him very much! His mother, my beloved, Squall is up in Heaven with John and Ann and I’m sure Ms. Squall will be waiting for me at the rainbow bridge.
And Remi, he’s still very special, but just not the only “foal” anymore.
Happy Birthday, Remington! Let’s hope I get to share about twenty or more healthy years with you, my friend.
