These two stallions-to-be were born over the past few days. Both are finding their legs.

This skinny little guy was probably born yesterday. He needs to put on a little weight!

This one looks to be two or three days old, fit and healthy. Walking the hills overlooking my village.

These are wonderful shots. They do come out so skinny, even those born in nice barns come out looking pretty pathetic, but they fatten up quickly. It will be fun watching them grow.

Do they ever round up the herds and thin them out? Just curious.

Thanks Gilles and Linda. Herd management is always a problem. The bands near my home are relatively small so round ups haven't occurred. As the horses are on BLM land, it's always a possibility that the herd will be culled or moved altogether.

Excellent shots as usual. They do look a little skinny especially the first one. Nevertheless they are very cute too.
