CALO’S PERFECTION FOALS ANOTHER BIG BOY

You may remember that Perfect Horse has foaled three times for us. Her fourth foal arrived five days late. We were very concerned that this late foal was going to be even bigger than WIW Midnight Rythm, who decided to be born exactly at the time of a summer power failure in 2005 right at the stroke of midnight. That adventure involved finding the generator with the tractor in pitch blackness and hooking it up in the barn so we could see while imprinting Midnight. Midnight had been so big, even at ten days before his due date, that we had to pull every time Midnight pushed. It had been a tough adventure, and we had worried both about Midnight’s ability to use his rear legs and Perfect Horse’s overall health..

This time Perfect Horse was able to do it all by herself with one big contraction that we watched on the cameras. The big handsome black colt with no white markings was only 41 inches at the withers, compared to Midnight’s 43 inches. He was also quicker to gain use of his hindquarters than Midnight as well as lighter in weight, making this delivery almost a regular piece of cake and ice cream.

WIW Navigaitor was born at 12:28 AM on May 21, 2008. He was one of the quicker ones to figure out how to access the breakfast bar and proved to be very tenacious about getting his just desserts. It felt wonderful to know that this newest addition to Windt im Wald Farm is both healthy and intelligent.

At seven days old, Navigaitor eats grass and hay without any teeth. He has a lovely head, shoulder, and hindquarter, and we are delighted to add that he gaits. As a special bonus, he is naturally-curly with a tightly furled black tail and absolutely NO white whatever.

We trust he will be a true navigator for Windt im Wald Farm.

UPDATE AT TWO WEEKS:
Gaitor still gaits. His head nods up and down as he appears to perform a natural broken pace or singlefoot. He is less elusive than he has been before and is easy to halter. We are teaching him to lead, and like TR, he has been in the trailer twice.

He is very curious about his half-sister, WIW Tsymply Royal, but Perfect Horse is very adamant that he not approach his older, but smaller sibling. Hopefully, Perfect’s resistance will be minimizing so that these two foals can share each other’s company and learning experiences.
