My friend Diane has had two miniature horses - a mare and an intact stallion - for about 5 years. They've lived together in perfect harmony, but obviously didn't want any children of their own.

Or so we thought.

Until Diane went out to feed yesterday morning and....


This is what she found.
Hmmmm..... Well, needless to say, this little girl was a pleasant suprise, and the whole little miniature family were just hanging out together like they weren't surprised at all. Imagine that.

So her name is Koda Surprise and she is an extremely brave, intrepid, friendly little thing. We went to see her this afternoon and wanted to stay and scratch her itchy little heiney all day.

Here are a few of the many shots I took.

"Look out Mom, here I come, and I'm HUNGRY!"

This one shows how HUGE she is in proportion to my (not overly tall) 8 year old and 5 year old.

Luke with Daddy Shadow, who is an amazingly sweet stallion, by the way.

And my favorite, cuddling with Uncle Lee.

And then she plopped right down in the middle of all the action (there were 7 people in there with them) and took a nap.

Poor little bit, she was all tuckered out.

Being alive is hard work.
