Chipeta has a baby girl. πŸ™‚

She is NOT spotted.

Unless you count the tiny dots upon her tiny face. See them?

Mama nuzzles her baby constantly.

They had split again; Chipeta, baby, Puzzle, Maiku and Ty … and Copper followed Corazon, Reya and S’aka.

Baby girl is nursing super well and is strong and healthy as a baby mustang can be! I left shortly after she laid down.

Thanks to Lynn and Kathy for the suggestion of Seneca for her name. I’ve had it in mind for months now for Chipeta’s baby.

I’ve found a couple of different meanings, including “keepers of the western wall” and “place of stones.” Either works here, on a stony, canyon-y chunk of western Colorado. πŸ™‚

And this was on a photo of a soldier and a dog in an email I got recently:

“Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.” It’s attributed to Seneca … probably the ancient Roman, not the Indian tribe. I think you could substitute the word “animal” for “human being,” and this statement still would be true.

Welcome to your rocky, beautiful, Western world, little Seneca. May your life be blessed.

How wonderful – welcome little Seneca to the big, challenging world. So thrilled that we MIGHT get to see the newest baby next week while there. Get to Cortez Wednesday. Will email/call you TJ to see if we might be able to connect between then and the following Tuesday.

She is an absolute beauty, as they ALL are!! How curious that this wee one of the Pinto Group(s) is NOT spotted… Thanks, TJ, for watching over these horses and their babies! YOU, more than anyone, knows how much we have come to love them… distance does not diminish this love, ever…
Thanks πŸ™‚

Please give all our “prayer stick” thoughts to PT…
