Hey there Lil' Fella

Baby Foal So many baby horses are born at the farm each year. It's amazing just how big they are even though they were just born. My friend's father bought a mare named Gainesville Gal and this is her adorable baby colt. He was born only a few short days before this photo was taken. The babies have the longest legs and it's amazing how quickly they learned to use them to run.
Horses in field Although the staff at Hidden Point take special care to watch the babies, they sometimes must be left in the barn to keep them from hurting their growing bodies. Often a foal will double in size within the first few weeks of its life. Sadly, a baby is separated from its mother when it reaches the tender age of 1. However, while they are at Hidden Point it is a common occurrence to see them running and playing in the fields by their mothers.
