New Foals

 My neighbour has two new foals and they are twins! The odds of having twin horses is 1 in 10,000 and the odds of them surviving is quite small, but these two are in good health at two weeks old.  The father is all black so the little filly looks like Dad, and the little colt looks like Mom.
The babies have some crookedness in their front legs, but hopefully they will straighten somewhat as they mature.  
 They are named Bonnie and Clyde.  Clyde has a pretty spiffy tail.


Mom is super friendly and didn't mind us playing with her babies.  She wanted a few pats herself, a little TLC for all the hard work she is doing.

  1. Bonnie and Clyde and Mom are all beautiful. It is so wonderful to see these little ones close up. When I try to capture photos of the older ones nearby they seem very camera shy. Thank you for sharing them with us.
