It’s a big week for baby announcements around Eventing Nation, and we’ve got another special bundle of joy to add to the mix. Please join us in welcoming Abel Price! Jonell Price gave birth Monday, February 10th to a healthy baby girl. Luckily, no C-section was needed in this case — the recovery time would delay spring competition plans of course. Congratulations to Tim, Jonelle and big brother Otis!
