Nova & Evangeline
It had been a day since she had started to feel the pains, just when she had started to enjoy the early summer. It was her first foal but it wasn't hard to figure out what was about to happen, so she had wandered away from the rest of the herd, her big belly very potrudent. She didn't want it to happen in the middle of the herd or at the cave, so she had sought out a more hidden place where she could have her firstborn.
For being her first foal, it had gone nice and quick, or at least quicker than what she had expected it to be.
The result? A beautiful baby girl, a little small maybe, but very energetic when she got to her feet. That was a a day ago, Nova didn't bring back her daughter to the herd until now, she had wanted the foal to be strong and quick before bringing it to the other to see, to Hoss to see.
So it was with pretty proud steps that she walked up to the cave entrance with the lively foal almost trotting at her side, both Nova and the foal looked healthy, and the red mares sides was slim again, her eyes gentle every time she looked at her daughter, it wasn't hard to see that she was very happy and proud.

The black and white foal at the red mares side was maybe a little smaller than most newborn foals, not by much, but it was noticable, but she wasn't really aware of it herself, she trotted around at her mothers side with ease in her little steps, the blue eyes very curious at the new surroundings, she just couldn't stop looking around, and her mother had to nudge her several times just to have her keep walking.
Her coat was black and white, with spots over the rump, the front legs and part of the chest dipped in white, the backlegs dipped in white until just above the hocks, and an apron-blaze decorated her face. Mane and tail were white and puffy. This was new to her and she didn't know that she was about to meet other horses, let alone her father.
