If it’s spring, that means there are baby horses!
This is Dancer, a Lusitano colt, at Donna Richardson’s Fox Run Farm, who was the most independent three-week-old foal I’ve ever photographed. Most foals that age try not to stray far from Mom’s protective Sphere of Influence. Not so Dancer! While Uma grazed, he was busy exploring every corner of his paddock, finding all sorts of interesting things to play with: a strip of bark, the water trough, his halter, a puddle…. He spent our photo session alternately ripping around at full speed and sproinging into the air. I can’t wait to see how he matures!
