This past Saturday, my friend Dee had shared a picture on her Facebook wall of a foal born four days prior. Dee’s mom raises barrel racing horses and one of her mares had given birth to a colt. When I saw the picture, I had to ask about photographing the new long legged baby.
Rusty (which is the colt’s barn name) stayed close to his mother when we were close by. He wasn’t too sure why we were so excited to see him and was a bit scared of us. But when we walked away, he would wonder a little further from his momma.
But never too far. And then go right back to her side to get a bit of his mother’s milk.
Thank you for allowing us to come see your new little one! I hope I can photograph him again as he grows into a strong horse.
