Happy Birthday Lukie (Updated)

Today is Lukas' third birthday.  This weekend while they were away for the weekend, Oupa built a stable and brought home the 4 month old Shetland pony that we got him as a gift for his birthday.  Early this morning we took him out to the plot, without telling him or his parents what to expect.  The joy on his face was thank you enough.
The birthday boy
The colt is very skittish and is still missing his mommy.
HE is afraid of all of us, but seem to have taken to Lukas...maybe because he is small?
Within a few minutes he was taking apples out of his hand.

Does anybody have a good idea for a name for the colt?    The she is a he....bwahaha!!!!!



  1. This is so special and I am sure any little boy's dream birthday gift. Luke is a lucky little boy.

  2. Ag mommy!Absolutely adorable.I think a colt is a young boy horse. A young girly would be a filly.

    What about "Sunshine"?
