Born in the cover of a dark night, a foal slowly takes his first steps to walk beside his mother at dawn. Young foals are stand and walk within minutes of birth. Instincts drive the mares to move their newborns to safety. The mare has a freeze brand on her neck indicating she was once a wild horse captured by the Bureau of Land Management.
