Mothers Day

Mothers Day is not just for humans. The bond between an animal and it's baby is magical too, just like the mare and foal above. This picture was taken last year in a field close to my horses. It was very special to watch the two of them as their beautiful relationship started to develop the moment the foal was born.

The Ewe with her lambs was an incredible experience too. I actually captured it on video last week which I posted onto Facebook. The Ewe was amongst hundreds of other sheep with their lambs. She suddenly called out and across the field, came racing her little lambs who singled her out immediately. It was a privilege to see.

Happy Mothers Day to everyone!


  1. I love watching animals with their babies - so sweet - who says that animals don't have feelings or emotions as they obviously do!

    Happy mothers day to Phyllis too!

  3. Hi Diane,
    How true. The bond in the animal world is truly magical.
    I recognise 'Mother's Day' twice. My Mother lives in Vancouver. So it's Happy Mothers Day, today and Happy Mother's Day on May 10:-)
    Lovely postings and photographs.
    With respect, Gary :-)

  4. Thanks to everyone for your comments. We had a wonderful weekend and Mom stopped over. She took a video of the ponies ( by mistake) much to her delight and enjoyed being out in the garden with the chickens.

  5. Oh bless you and your mum Di,

    You are a true example of a mother and daughter relationship being there to help the other.

    Best wishes to you both.

    Please take care of yourself.
