1) One of those horses is really badly overweight.

Mares, unlike female humans, do not kick you in the head when you get these two terms confused.

Great pics and also a great story. Nature can be so cruelly kind. I hate to say this every friday, but I love fridays here in the Cellar. Thanks.

This is a horsey week in the cellar, isn't it? I've seen these before and still enjoy the tenderness they show. Glad the mom returned in time to lead her babe safely away...

Horses are cool in that most of them will hook up with any critter that's not agressive. Cats, dogs, sheep, goats, cows, geese, anything that shows affection will likely be welcomed, and anything not agressive, tolerated.

Fawn's are some of nature's lovliest babies. Even the word 'fawn' (or, 'faun') is pretty (unless you name your daughter that. Then it becomes white-trashy)

For some reason this reminds me of this story:

eastepp, THAT was funny! Dogs find Elk carcass and won't leave (from inside it) so she brings them home, elk carcass and all... I almost peed myself.

Such sweet pictures.

I know that you put these on here a long time ago and you have probably forgotten them since. These are actually my horses and the pictures were taken in Wimberley, Texas(not the bottom picture). My mother and I were leaving our house one day and saw the baby fawn with our horses and luckily I had my camera in my purse. It was a very sweet moment and my mare Ellie was so gentle with the fawn who hung around for at least an hour. It is a memory I will never forget. It is very common for the doe to leave her fawn alone while she is wandering around for food, we saw them together after this so we know she did not abandon the baby. My horse Ellie died about a year after these pictures were taken and it is wonderful to see that she is still living on the internet today. We sent these pictures to a few family friends and were surprised years later to find they spread online like wildfire. We are going through many of the websites and confirming that they are ours, just to set the record straight because alot of people are claiming they belong to them and are using them for advertising purposes. Feel free to keep them on your site, I just want to see people enjoy them. They were amazing horses with great souls and personalities. anne

Thank you Anne. In memory of Ellie, then, and her gentle nature. It is very fitting that you find the thread and complete it.

Thanks for giving us the backstory, Anne. Wimberley is a nice town, I went to a Shakespeare festival there once.

And now we know.

Anne, I add my thanks at the conclusion to the story, even though it is a sad one for you. What a wonderful tribute, going round and letting people know the backstory.
