This little guy has beautiful markings.  I'm not just sure what color he is at this point.  Looks to be either brown or charcoal grey.  Either way, he's gorgeous. 

He is a very showy little boy with wonderful markings.  Lots of black markings on his legs.  Another very friendly boy.  Difficult to take a picture as he wants to follow me around!

GRAND SIRE:  CIRCLE C RED LIGHTENING 32" SORREL
GRAND DAM:  RASPBERRY FIZZ OF CIRCLE , 34.25" SORREL

Well this was a surprise.  Showgirl is a maiden jennet and when we checked her in the evening, she did not show the signs of foaling.  Her bag was still soft and floppy and her milk was clear.  But to be on the safe side, I decided to put her in the barn.  When we checked the camera in the morning, there was the new foal.  Just goes to show, you can never trust a maiden jennet!  

This is another great foal and the last of Ten's foals this year.  Her conformation is very correct and she has a very mild disposition with a nice friendly personality.  She is being offered for sale.

Ten out did himself this time.  This little girl is a beauty.   Lacey was 2 weeks past the year and I thought she would be early so it was a long wait. Mystique is built like a tank.  She has great bone structure, a perfect bite and the personality to match.
