"Keepin' Up" Horses, Giclée
12x24 Open Edition Giclée by Kathy Winkler
This approximately 2 to 3 month old foal really had the long legs to keep up with the rest of the herd of horses turned out from a corral into the lower hills of Colorado. When foals are born, their legs are almost the length they will be when they reach adulthood. Horses are animals of flight, which probably lends itself to them developing rapidly and within a few hours of birth, can travel with the herd. Additionally, the mare and foal bond very quickly. Much of their communication is almost imperceptible to the human eye.
