Happy birthday, Gaia!

23 04 2010

She has a delicate appearance, like her mama, but with a heart of gold and tough as a mustang!

I didn’t know in the beginning that not only was her red-gold here to stay, it would just get prettier as she grew up.

What a doll!

This is one of my favorite photos of the girl and her mama.

Gaia is Alegre’s first foal. I think Alegre may be a daughter of Alpha and Grey/Traveler. Alpha has always been an extra-protective mother in my experience, and I wasn’t surprised when Alegre showed the same level of care (as they all do, really). And I was pleased to see Gaia take after her mother when little brother Whisper came along last year.

And …

Gaia and Liberty, who is a couple of weeks younger than Whisper, the day I realized she was an orphan.

Gaia was born on or around Earth Day – hence her goddess name.

Happy second birthday, nurturing girl!
