The miracle of birth!


One of my silent dreams came true unexpectedly this weekend!

During the weekend stay in American Miniatures Horses stud SS Show Horses, I photographed mainly horses ready for this year’s shows – rather monotonous part of this job. But everything changed on Saturday night.

Shortly after the session we heard from the stable call that there one of the mares is foaling!

I couldn’t believe how great fortune happened to me! After many waitings on the truth of many many stables,
in the end I had the opportunity not only to watch but also to photograph the miracle of birth! The birth had place in the paddock during sunset – I couldn’t dream it better!

To the world came pretty chestnut colt.

Fortunately, we were able to capture some movie from the first few minutes of his life – I invite you to watch this short clip 🙂
