Leila, the Frisky Filly

Leila is definitely getting her sea legs. She runs and bucks and plays with her mother and us, nibbling our shirts and playing peak-a-boo from beneath her mother's massive neck. She investigates everything we do, and then turns her behind to us for a good scratch on the croup. Occasionally, she escapes her paddock (by way of an open gate) and runs about the barnyard, without accompaniment from mom. If mom is eating, she is too distracted to worry, but sooner or later she begins to knicker, calling Leila back. What a well adjusted filly Leila is!

  1. She's a beauty for sure. I know it must be a joy to see her run and play.
