Watching and Waiting for Wonder

Watching and Waiting for Wonder
(posted for the A to Z Challenge)

W is for Watching … and Waiting … and Wonder.

Have you ever marveled at the miraculous and magnificent ways God expresses Himself, quietly painting images of His love in the details of our lives?

Take a look at the newest arrival at the barn.

This sweet foal was born this week to a prime Thoroughbred dam, sired by a pedigreed racer. Sadly, the owner did not live to see the latest addition to his string. An avid Midwestern racing fan, horse breeder and dressage show host, this respected horseman succumbed to cancer two weeks ago.

Steal a peek at this beautiful baby. 

Think perhaps God is trying to tell us something? Born during the Christian Holy Week, this little one looks to be a gift from above with a message of love.

Having bred and raised my own horses, I admit I tend to be partial to my own foals. But this newcomer may be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.  

(I snapped these photos with my cell phone, so the resolution is not fabulous, but the foal surely is.)

Certainly, this foal was worth the watching and waiting … just for the wonder!

Watch it, and try not to be touched by the beauty of this dam and her foal.

  1. must be amazing to witness something like that.
    Great meeting you through the A-Z!


  2. I think one of the most amazing things is seeing a baby fawn stand up. My grandpa had horses when I was growing up, and I remember him taking me once when his Tennessee Walker had a baby. I will never forget it and how excited I was to see it.


  3. What a beautiful foal, have you seen the Black Beauty with Sean Bean? The mark on its' face reminds me of the mark on the foal in that movie. Gorgeous. Wonder what he looks like now. I'm one of those girls who never grew out of her little girl obsession with horses. :)


  4. That is really amazing! It looks like someone painted a perfect heart on it's head. Truly beautiful.
