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.

  1. Tis a good thing you are a “”quick draw” with a camera. Must be the years of practice. The more I see of this little personally the more I adore him. GREAT shots under pressure!

  2. What an adorably precious baby. Aw, I’m so glad they made an appearance and you were able to take his photo. I want to hug him, he makes me smile. So sweet. 🙂

  3. He is SO cute and I love his “baby fuzz”………he looks healthy and it will be so much fun watching him grow up……I’m sure you’ll be snapping away at him to keep us posted in the future!!


  4. What an adorable sweetie! And lucky you for being able to capture his photo.

    This sweet little colt does not know it yet, but he is becoming famous. Time or not you took some great pictures, Dianna. Looking forward to Gregorio’s story unfolding.

  6. Look at that fuzz!!!! He is so sweet! Thanks for sharing all of those fabulous pics!

  7. I’m glad you were right where you needed to be at just the right time !

  8. How wonderful – look at the coloring – and the black eye! With that black eye, he looks like a pirate:) How appropriate for the OBX area.

  9. I thought “New Kid on the Block” was a reference to the election results 😉 But lucky you! Gregorio is so kissable. So glad you got a peek at him and shared it!

  10. So cute!! Our hooman melted!!
