Artist's Description

Foals are born after a gestation period of approximately 11 months. Birth takes place quickly, consistent with the status of a horse as a prey animal, and more often at night than during the day. Foals are born with an ability to quickly escape from predators; normally a foal will stand up and nurse within the first hour after it is born, can trot and canter within hours, and most can gallop by the next day. A newborn foal’s legs are almost as long (90%) as those of an adult horse. Healthy foals grow quickly and can put on up to three pounds or over a kilo a day. In the first weeks of life the foal gets everything it needs from the mare’s milk. A foal may start to eat solids from ten days of age, after eight to ten weeks it will need more nutrition than the mare’s milk can supply; supplementary feeding is required by then.
