Rosie (Rosalind) the Red Roen Clydesdale.
Mare and foal doing well.

Yes, you can have one Tilt, but you'll have to come here to collect!
Her "other mother" is...ecstatic.
I'll provide more photos later.
kind regards,

Ben

Thanks Chris.
I don't know what it makes me.
Its getting a bit ridiculous now; the menagerie consists of five horses, two dogs and two cats.
And there's an eclectus parrot at my mother-in-law's on the mainland that we can't bring to Tasmania.
I think I need to get another job so we can feed everyone.
There's not much money but there's lots of love to go around.
Anyway, I better skeddadle back to work.
kind regards,

Ben

A nice Jataka Story: , where Sariputta was the Foal.

Ben, sorry for my ignorance in regard of names. Clydesdale is translated "Brauereipferd" which means brewery-horse, so its a strong working race horse.
Just that! *smile*

Plwk -
As my kids would say "thanks for the LOLs!!"
Its too late. The cats are the mafia that run this household.

Hannze,
Yes, as Tilt said, a Clydesdale is also known as 'draught horse' and 'shire horse'.
Traditionally, they were work horses pulling ploughs and heavily laden carts.
No doubt, used by lots of breweries.
Anyway, here are some more of the wee horsey.
One with its mother, Heidi and one shortly after it was born.

Thank you Anna, Yawares and Louise!
I've just returned from visiting Rosie for the first time and took some photos and videos.
I'll try and upload some short videos tonight to Youtube and post the link in this thread.
with metta,

Ben
