When my roommate shipped her horse back to school just before the fall semester began, I was in for a big surprise: her mare had foaled the night before, and there in the horse-trailer was the tiniest little filly hiding under her mama's belly. My roommate wasn't due back at school for another couple of weeks, so I took lots of pictures for her during those first few weeks. The foal in this painting was from one of those photos, the first day the filly bent down to nibble at some green grass.
