New Kid On The Block

Last week, I read on the Corolla Wild Horse Fund Facebook page that there was a new foal – a beautiful colt – born into the herd. He was just recently discovered, and they estimate he was born in early October.  It’s rather late in the season for a little one to arrive; according to the CWHF, this is only the second one born in October in the past 10 years.

So…naturally, on our next trip to the beach, I had high hopes (if not expectations) of seeing the new baby.

Motor Man and I had driven down one of the dead-end dirt “streets” in Corolla and were in the process of turning around at the end when I spotted…..little Gregorio and his parents walking up a path.

Thankfully, my camera was already in my lap. Just look at that gorgeous little face.

There really wasn’t much time for pictures, because Gregorio and family never stopped walking.

They walked up one path directly in front of us and immediately headed down another nearby path. (You would think they could have stopped for at least a few seconds to munch on some grass….)

But, in 12 seconds, I took 8 pictures of that sweet baby.  And you know that we’ll be watching for him on our future trips, and I’ll be sharing pictures if when we see him again.
