This morning the clouds parted long enough for the sun to gently shine down upon Leonie and her beautiful new baby daughter. The filly, lovingly named after the great horseman, Red Bucket volunteer, and our dear friend Bob Cronin, is strong, beautiful, healthy….and alive! Cronin made her royal appearance early this morning, got up quickly, and began to nurse with gusto. She does not want to miss even one moment of her new life. Her beautiful mother is doing well and will have every opportunity to thoroughly enjoy motherhood. Leonie has received the Red Bucket promise. She will be protected for life, and her foal will be raised in the embrace of those who respect and safeguard life. Thank you to all who made Cronin’s birthday possible…it takes a village! Happy Birthday, Cronin!
