Here he is!

Here the baby story; Yesterday afternoon Pica showed all signs except wax-pluggs (any other name anyone?) and we sat in stables and almost froze to death. In the meantime our doormen came around to make some noise and we breathed through that with zen-patience, Pica did not seem to bother though, she was in too much pain :(

Pobrecita Pica yesterday    
Nova being supportive next door

We thought we'd better go back and get caravancar to be able to continue our watch and so we did, nervous to leave them but my mother is the guru-baby-watcher so I went with her feeling. Back in stables 2 hours later, the benefit from getting also some food and heat in system was great. We drove back and met a quiet mother-to-be. At this point she also had wax-plugs, the only missing sign, getting closer.. So we had some tea and I went checkin in on her every 30 min. Nothing. Then we decided to get some rest and through sleep I heard my mother going out to stables. 1 min later she opened door and said she was giving birth, he had just peeked through and looked curious at us both! Brr it was the coldest night in Spain ever, just right for my Viking-boy to arrive :) Mum gave birth with the jacket on no problem and baby arrived well and full of energy, hurray!!! Picara greeted her baby, such a beautiful moment, and then stayed resting for a while whilst we dried baby with towels. I had wished for a isabelo colt without any white markings, and there he was - absolutely straight from that vision! Incredible joy!!



After some rest he told us he wanted to eat, so we helped him on his legs and he had his first meal. All in the timespan of 1,5 hour. Then we had some tea and went back for a little while but as he looked full and sleepy we decided to go to bed aswell. And that was that - no drama, only love and peace! Beautiful!

I finish off with some pics from 'Tico's' first evening walk today

So have we said goodbye to Kiko our beautiful baby. Nature has had its course and wisely decides what is to be and what is not. And we have to accept and let go. Kiko was born too early, he was premature and weak and was not able to eat himself. I go...
