About three weeks ago Buttercup was an unexpected addition to my mother in law’s barn. Her mother Firefly and her grandmother Foxy were purchased this past summer with the suspicion that one or both might be pregnant. It is now obvious that Shorty the stallion who lived with the two mares had his way with Firefly…The thing is that she didn’t show it…Foxy did and was tested for pregnancy…negative…Actually Foxy still looks pregnant but she just is fond of her food ;-) Buttercup had a bit of a tough first couple of days with an inexperienced young mom but now is thriving and Firefly has become very protective. She is a blast to watch and fortunately she stopped to pose with the daffodils.
