A shiny new pony

When I was walking the dogs this morning, I met a brand new foal and his Mum. His legs weren't quite working properly yet, and his mum was still trailing afterbirth. I am not sure why she chose the spot right next to the busiest carpark with footpaths either side busy with people and dogs, but she did.


Baby pony looks just like his Dad, who with his various wives, has the job of keeping the grass in the park trimmed. I think they are Dartmoor ponies.

I am slightly worried about what happens to all the baby ponies: there seem to be six or seven new ones born every year. I *hope* they all get nice homes!
