Angel’s Little Surprise

Hello everyone! I had a surprise when I went hiking in the park today. My plan had been to hike a certain area of the park first thing this morning but I was distracted and missed my turn. Figuring I could do that hike later, I headed to a new spot instead. In the distance, I could see Copper, Half Moon, and Sidekick. I headed out towards them but once I got to Sidekick, I noticed Thunder standing in the area as well. I decided to hike over to him first to check on everyone and would photograph the others on my way out. The rest of his band were around the corner so I positioned myself against a butte to take a short break. I was observing the band and noticed Angel looked thinner than the last time I saw her. She was down in small dip so I couldn’t see everything around her. A few minutes later, Thunder squealed and went running over to her. Pale Lady and Winter positioned themselves in front of Angel and then a tiny head popped up! Angel had a baby! I knew she was pregnant but honestly had no idea when she would foal. The new little one is a filly and appears to be doing well. Pale Lady and Winter stuck close to Angel while I was there. I have seen amazing and heartbreaking things with these three mares in the past. Watching them with Angel and her filly today only reminded me of why I love them and the bond they share. Below are some photos of the newest adorable addition to this herd. Enjoy and thanks, everyone!
