MM's Keeper's Freyfaxi

Howdy all,
well, my mare had her foal, a fine young colt, at 3 a.m. Mother's Day. She immediately tried to kill it, and me for rescuing it, and has since refused to nurse it. In short, orphaned it. As he is the fourth genreration sired form Dreamfinder, THE Appaloosa stallion, I am hand feeding and raising him. So far, so good. I will post more, and some pictures, later today. Sorry for being absent teacher, but I was busy.
Oh, his name, MM's Keeper's Freyfaxi, reflects my name, MM, his sire's name, Finders Keeper, and the name I gave him,Freyfaxi, which in Viking lore, was the greatest stallion ever, a gift to a king from the God Frey, God of prosperity and fertility.

Awww, I'll be waitin to see those pics now : ) Congrautlations on the new baby. It sounds like alot of hard work taking care of these orphaned babies but look on the bright side : ) No diaper changes and the payoff is more than worth it to know you did the right thing in yout heart.

Oh, I really don't mind it. The way that he took to me when I cut him loose from the tangle that he got into trying to get away from his momma, and how he is with me since I have been caring for him makes it worth it. I am also imprint training him so that he will be much easier to handle later on. He already holds his feet for me to check, and stands for me to pput a blanket on his back, and allows me to straddle him. In a couple of years when it is time to saddle train him, these memories will be in place, and he will be a breeze to train.
On the cold reality side, the value of a hand raised stallion of his bloodline is very high.
