Not True Grit. He's an independent soul. He seeks out others in this field who have a similar spirit. Sometimes he gets them into trouble.This little guy here with the half moon star on his face is one that will follow True Grit on his Adventures Away From His Mother. They'll spend a lot of time further and further away from the mares, stretching their independence and being downright exhuberant at times. But tonight, things are moving slow. And everyone seems content. And, in the end, even True Grit's a little momma's boy. There she is, little fella. You're safe now.

There comes a time in every day when things start to slow down and the day begins to draw to an end. Foals aren't as frisky and they seem more content to stay near their mothers, enjoying the fresh grass that's beginning to grow. These little ones are in the paddock directly behind our home and I took these photos from my yard on Wednesday evening. Today was a beautiful rendition of an early spring day in Maryland. Notice this little guy above? He's True Grit from the post directly below. Look at how quiet he is right now, though.
