Mother & Foal

A mother and her recently born foal await in the yard for their owners to take them back home. This boarding farm takes in pregnant mares of busy owners where trained staff will supervise the birthing process, then take care of mom and baby for the first month before returning them to their owner. Here, the mom and baby enjoy some outdoor time
