Since it’s Ollie’s first Foal Friday I figured I’d let him have the spotlight all to himself. Plus, let’s be honest, most of the pics coming out of WTW this week are of this kid, because it’s hard for anyone else to get attention when you’ve got a pony baby that’s THIS level of cute running around.
And when I say running around I do mean RUNNING. What is it with these pony foals, they’re born with firecrackers in their bums.
His pretty metallic silver color definitely adds to his charm, too. It’s a shame he’ll gray out, but maybe he’ll look even more silver in the process?
So far his personality is more like Oakley’s, who is by the same sire. He’s cheeky and bold and weird and contains large doses of sass and ponytude. It will be interesting to see how their dynamic unfolds when they get turned out together (my money is on the filly).
But he’s also REALLY well balanced already, and looks like he’s going to be a nice mover. He’s uphill and getting more and more suspension as he figures his legs out.
Also did I mention Ollie is really really cute and he knows it?
If your heart hasn’t exploded from cuteness yet, here’s the coup de grace:
Happy Friday everyone! It looks like Sadie is going to foal any time now… I’m watching her on the camera as we speak. Fingers crossed for an uneventful foaling to round out the WTW Class of 2020!
