I've been stalking the evergrowing expecting Shetlands up at Fritham for weeks and weeks now and i was rewarded today with the first of the foals! This little person was soooo cute! They'd drawn quite a little crowd of weekend visitors, but i'm pleased to say everyone kept a respectful distance from this new mum.

I was starting to think all the NF foals this year were bay and chestnut (the local stallions i've seen are all these colours proving their genetic strength!) with just the odd iron grey and dark brown baby.... but today i also spotted the first Skewbald foal! Gorgeous!!

And not to be left out here's a classic NF scene... typical mummy and baby enjoying the spring breeze!
