"The Grinch" is Here!

Well, after getting up in the middle of the night for over a week to check on Cindy, I was finally too tired to wake up last night. By the time I did, it was 6:30 AM. I raced to the barn to find this little guy, born, dry and nursing. Figures! He is a bay tobiano, very minimally marked. By 7:00 AM, he was cantering circles around his Mama and leaping into the air. He is VERY spunky! He is just what ClaireAnna wanted. These pictures were all taken by noon today when he was less then 12 hours old.

Why "The Grinch" you ask? Well, Cindy's full name is "Cindy Lu Who" from How the Grinch Stole Christmas. For two years ClaireAnna has planned to name Cindy's foal, "The Grinch" if it was a boy. Well, she got her boy and can you believe he has a Grinch right on his face?! Look at the blaze. I'll be darned if it's not a Grinch with the hat flopped forward just like this picture from the book!

For those who can't see it!
A special and sincere thank you to Gary and Jolene Epperson, owners of Smart Singer, The Grinch's sire. Thank you so much for working with us and helping to make ClaireAnna's dream come true! She is thrilled!
