It had been a long night and one that was far from over yet. Yellow fur matted with sweat Snap gasped as another painful spasm squeezed her belly. She was sure Oath hadn't had nearly this much trouble when Lash had been born but refused to dwell on any of the doubts that flitted around the edge of her focus. She had banished Whip from the cave earlier, snarling at him to get out when she'd become fed up of his worrying. She was sure he hadn't gone far. Wary has he had become of her moods over the last few weeks he was far to protective of his mares to have left her truly alone tonight.

With a final push Snap collapsed back against the floor giving in momentarily to her exhaustion before craning her neck around to examine the products of her labors.

Three small, slick bodies lay curled on the floor blinking up at her in a tangle of gangly limbs. One, the same distinct orange as her father, was already struggling to find some measure of control over her limbs with little success. Some instinct drove her to her feet despite her desire to sleep and she gently nuzzled the foals until all three wobbled upright on their spindly legs. Each bore small numbs of red horn- a trademark she supposed of their parents- and much to her surprise all three had small delicate wings tucked tightly against their backs.

"Whip," she called leaving the foals to the discovery of their balance and walking to the mouth of the cave to find the stallion."Would you like to meet your children?"

Whip paced outside. He had been banished last night from his cave -his cave!- by his lead mare, Snap. Granted, he understood why, but still! It was his cave! But apparently it didn't matter. His mare was giving birth, and he'd been banished from being with her.

The plants surrounding their home showed the results of the banishment. Most were shredded, or had claw marks. A few had been uprooted, having been ripped form the ground when Whip had heard cries from inside the cave. There were a few dead and dying fish littering the banks of the river as well.

Yes, Whip had not taken the birth of his newest foals well. Granted, his second mare had had a foal already, a fine strong filly. Who had already let home and found herself a stallion and a Song.

Pacing, he heard Snap call to him, and whirled around towards the cave. His mare was there, and he hurried to her.

((Sorry Lvs, managed to catch a terrible cold the day after I posted. This should move along much better now.))

Eyes widening is surprise as she took in the destruction around the cave Snap mentally reassessed her decision leave the stallion unattended in the future. Whip had managed to work himself into a really fine state - worry and anxiety practically rolled off him as he hurried over to her. Frustration too but that was just Whip. If left to stew too long in his own thoughts he was almost guaranteed to find something that brushed him the wrong way.

"Worried were you?" Snap asked bumping him gently with her head. Even tired she couldn't resist teasing him a bit. "You needn't be - we're all fine. All three are up and about and bound to be getting in trouble soon if left to their own devices."
