Finally here is Plumtree China's blog! (I apologise, I am getting so behind)
Plumtree China was born at 1am, April 24th. Her Dam, my (Jodie) beautiful mare Crystal, has had a 2 year break from foaling... and boy was China worth the wait! She is a lovely, chunky, square little filly and one of my favorite colours is Bay so I am over the moon! Plumtree China is to be retained by our stud.
Here is a little video taken over her first couple of days...
And here are a couple of photos taken at 10 (the one in the Stable) and 11 hours old!
She was tired from running around the pen all night playing!
Her dam is Merryhill Crystal, the photo below was taken 4 days before China was born.
And her Sire is our handsome Brandeston Rupert

China having a play on a sunny evening.
She is so friendly now, it looks like another pony that I am going to have to have a 'helper' to get photos of (Please excuse the teribble phone photos! It struggled with the strong evening sun!)

I had my Mum, Lorraine, help distract China while I took these photographs of her.
I do love headshots, China at 6 weeks old.
