In Freya’s Foal, a horse worries that his mother’s new foal is getting more attention, but he soon comes to love his new little brother.
Newborn foals are very wobbly when they first stand up, about half an hour after their birth, to drink their mother’s milk. They grow very quickly in the first month and soon learn to eat grass. When they are 4–6 months old they are almost fully independent. Foals have lots of energy and each day they explore and gain more confidence.
