I know not everyone ventures into the Breeding section of the forum so I thought it would be nice to have Foal Friday in here so anyone with foals this year can do a weekly pic-athon so we can all watch their progress! You don't always appreciate how much they have grown when you see them every day but they change massively week to week!

So here is Dum Dum! So named because he was a dummy foal when he was born. He wasn't an extreme dummy but it took him 3 or 4 days to come right.

His story is here: https://forums.horseandhound.co.uk/threads/shetland-foal-2020.788441/

@tda I think I'm in love you your blue roan mare and her foalie. How is she bred?

Edited to remove the goalie my phone clearly doesn't know me at all.

Ahhh elf that foal is such a cute fluff ball. Never heard of a dummy foal though!

i love how they are all ‘knees and elbows’ when young.

I used to have a pyjama case that looked just like him ! I can't remember what happened to it . Don't suppose you could you just flip him over and check if he has a zip running along his belly ?

A very tenuous seeming connection but I was a really late reader. I spent nearly all my time outside of school with my illiterate Burmese nanny and I was so frustrated and upset at my inability to read until one day I just could. I still remember the wonder of it nearly 60 years later. Watching Hera’s videos remind me of that feeling as she revels in the sheer joy of movement. I can gallop and spin and bronc and buck and rear and gallop some more but lying down for a kip is still a bit crumple and drop. Sorry to ramble on and hijack the foal thread but she just gets to me.

oh wow, that's amazing.
Yes you're right, she just loves whizzing and twirling around, that bit is well practiced ;)
