Perfect Picture Book Friday – Baby Animals

We made it, folks!Β  TGIF!

So guess what?

It turns out I have actual psychic powers!

Remember that baby horse I said could be born on April 25?

Well, just minutes after midnight (around 12:23 AM) it actually was!

Look how beautiful! – a brand new filly (and for those of you who weren’t raised in a barn, that means a girl πŸ™‚ )

Isn’t she just the cutest thing ever???!!! πŸ™‚

Also big, strong, healthy, and full of beans! – a regular little firecracker sure to keep us (and her mama) on our toes! πŸ™‚

Just wanted to let you know, since I promised I would πŸ™‚

Now then, onto my Perfect Picture Book!Β  In light of springtime and the new baby in our barn, I thought what better than a book about baby animals?
