Well actually , my "FV Rainmakers Quest" or Maks as we will be calling him .
So the name suggestions you all gave me were great,and I really appreciate the input . Jackpot is a name I used for a foal of Richie's BB (before blogging ) who sadly was born with a ruptured bladder and did not survive.I may use the name again some day but am just not there yet.As for the S names , I just could not get one that hit me quite like this one. Maks is a grandson of DVS Dream Maker (son of the great Dreamfinder) on his dam line , and on his sires line a bit further back a descendant of Top Quest (follow this link to see some of the loud coloring he had!) So his name does fit as an homage to his heritage.The rain part? well the poor kid was born in a rainstorm and on day 3 of his life I think he has only seen about 18 hours of totally dry weather(he does have a shed ) .Central and southern Alberta was in the throws of a huge tantrum on the part of mother nature today with severe weather warnings and Tornado warnings all around.Here was mostly just rain and Thunder but Edmonton was under a severe watch and I believe south and east of the city did see funnel clouds
(credit 102.3 Now! Radio')And this photo was sent in by a listener to a local radio station from a listener at Pigeon lake , it is a water spout less dangerous than a funnel cloud or a tornado certainly, but another example of the power of nature.
And finally , my brother in law Marc was the one to first meet the little man , while out for his early morning walk with Mac his westie so they too get a nod in Maks' barn name .
There you go , its official .so now you just have to bear with me and the deluge of baby pics coming your way till the next foal arrives. Then they will double and so on and...
Stay safe friends
