Nap Time

The antics of colts always intrigue me. And this particular little fellow is no exception. With all the wonderful weather we’ve been having lately, this colt’s mother likes to take the time to indulge in sunlight naps. However, her son often has different ideas.

If horses could talk, this is what I figure he’d be saying…


Hey Mum, C’mon on! Come play with me…

Puuuuullllllleaseeeeeee!! Come play with me! We’ll have fun…

Mum, I’m getting mad…. and flusterated!

(Is that even a word…?)

Are ya sure ya don’t wanna play with me? We can have a great time! I’ll pretend to be a big horsey and you – you, can be whatever you wanna be!


Hey you! You wanna play with me?

Hey wait! Come back…! I won’t play so rough, I promise…!

Okay. Nevermind then.

Hi Mum, I’m back.

I love you.

And I’m glad you don’t wanna play. Cuz, I’m kinda tired…

    Very cute and perfect play-by-play Jenn. Love the foals and their antics. Mom looks like a patient sweetheart.

    Just adorable! I wondered if you wrote this during Faythe and Braxton’s ‘naptime’….
    Trust all is going well – really missing my baby snuggles!
