Spring Baby!!

Dr. Anna Marie’s newest filly!! They are still deciding on a name … and found a four leaf clover just before she was born on the weekend.
Have any ideas???

“Lucky” and “Clover” maybe, but she’s an Al-Marah Arabian girl, so – Zayda? (lucky in Arabic?)
Put on your thinkin’ caps and send me some names!

Any new photos of your own to share? Spring is in the air!

Randall’s career included feature films “The Alamo” (1960), “The Misfits” (1961), “How the West Was Won” (1962), “Soldier Blue” (1970), “Hot to Trot” (1988), “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” (1989), “Buffalo Girls” (1995) and “The Mask of Zorro” (1998) and the 1950s TV shows “Spin & Marty” and “Zorro.”
