We had been watching Target non-stop for days. She had all the signs of foaling including white milk, but, for some reason she was holding out having her baby. I think I know why now!
Late Easter Sunday evening is when Target wanted to give us the best Easter present of all. She had been saving her until the last minute so it would be a very dramatic ending to such a special Easter Holiday! I can tell you without a doubt this foal was well worth the wait. Everyone who knows me can tell you that my favorite candy in the world is the candy only available at Easter time….Peeps! I can never seem to get my fill of those “all sugar chicks.” This little jennet is truly my Peeps! I cannot seem to get my fill of this little girl…..I am addicted!. She is as sweet and delicious as an Easter basket chock full of PEEPS! We wanted to name this gorgeous red jennet, with a star on her forehead, something very sweet and meaningful....and my friend, Dena, thought of this perfect name for her. Peeps is truly a knock-out and her heavy bone, wide chest, long ears, and pleasing personality make her the “sweetest Easter candy” in our basket this year.
Joe and I are so pleased with her and feel so blessed to have had her sire, Winston, stay at our farm for a short period of time last year. We now have 2 fantastic foals from breeding him to several of our finest jennets. Praise the Lord…Life Is Good!
We really want to have this bloodline in our herd so we will be keeping Peeps and adding her to our permanent brood jennet herd at the appropriate age. Until that time we will simply love and adore her as she shares her beauty and sweetness with all of us at Half Ass Acres.
Please feel free to come see her and get “a taste” of Peeps. She will become your favorite candy as well!
Peeps first day outside at 14 hours old!
