You just can't make this stuff up!!

Otherwise titled........




We are not having another little Shupe.
But let me tell you a little story.

Yesterday,which was saturday, we came to the farm to ride horses.
David and i went to saddle up two horses to start the day.

We were certainly surprised to see our herd had increased by one.
Bella, our buckskin mare was standing guard over a foal we estimated to be less than twenty-four hours old.

Long story wasn't even her foal.  She stole it from Juliette who now has staunchly rejected the baby because she was not allowed to bond with it thanks to bella's interference.

So here is what we know so far.

Bella wants to be a mother, but she's not.
Juliette doesn't want to be a mother, but she is.
Baby horse is a filly.
She wants a mother that takes care of her.

We are working around the clock and diligently to do the following....

Convince bella she's not a mom.
Persuade juliette she is a mom.
Find baby horse a mom that will feed her.
Find the humor in all of this because life is too short to be bothered by unexpected bumps in the road (or babies in the pasture).

We really needed one more thing to do.


Sorry for the bad typing. 
I'm posting from my ipad since i'm playing nursemaid at the farm.

Have a good night.  I'm off to bed before the next feeding!
