Too Sweet!





A baby horse on its mom's lap.
This is a newborn offspring of Taskin, a Gypsy Stallion owned by Villa Vanners of Oregon. These pictures were taken immediately after his birth. The mare laid down, and then he trotted around and crawled right up into her lap. Talk about true love!

That is a very sweet picture. I don't think I've ever seen a horse do this before.

How precious. Mother love is the same whether it's in the human or animal kingdom.

My friend just watched a mother Dove stay with her baby on the ground until the baby was able to fly. It apparently fell out of the nest and was too young to fly. The mother stayed by the baby for two days. My friend offered shade, water and seeds to help the mama.
