Cherokee had her foal

We are just tickled pink. This is an update on Cherokee, my pregnant mare. Today (May 23) at 7:20 pm Cherokee delivered a beatiful little filly. An absolutely perfect delivery with no problems. I posted a couple of pictures in my group site at . We were fortunate enough to see this from beginning to end. If you've never had this experience; well; it's awsome.
We named her Stormy; for good reason. The weather is terrible.
Anyway, all is well with Cherokee and Stormy.

Where are you from? Georgia

Re: Cherokee had her foal

Hello Terry! Congratulations! I'll certainly take a look at those photos! Foaling is a wonderful experience -- I enjoy being the neighborhood "midwife!"

All the best,

Dr. Getty
