Spring Brings Foals

Over the last couple of months, Doug and I  have been watching four very pregnant mares at the ranch we drive through nearly every day.  Then one day there was one foal.  About four days later, another.  Then two more.  

Today we saw one mare and her foal.  The foal started away while we watched.  Where is it going?

As we watch it get further and further from the mare, it begins to prance along.  Where is it going?

and then...ah my friends, there they are.

We watched for a while.  The foals were all leaping and nuzzling each other.  A very cute scene.

and then, it was meal time.

There is nothing like watching baby animals play. Just makes you smile.

I am with Sandie. I love watching any type of baby animal. They are so dang cute.

This is the time of year all the new babies make an appearance. They are so much fun to watch and enjoy. We haven't seen the fawns come out yet but they will. They're probably still in hiding.
