Miniature FillyKATIE

On this sunny but cold and windy May day, I made my way back to Mountain Top Miniatures on the 3rd Line of Oro Medonte (near Barrie, Ontario) to photograph their latest addition, a 23" foal born on April 27th, 2009. Jennifer Sanderson's miniature mare, Foxrun Annabelle, now had a beautiful red and white paint filly by her side. As her registered name is yet to be decided, Jennifer allowed the kids on the school bus she drives to give the filly a nickname. They decided "Katie" would do nicely for now.

This foal was born in the pasture while Jennifer and her family were away from the farm in the daytime, and did not receive a warm welcome from the other horses that shared the pasture. Because of this unfortunate start, the mom is very protective of her foal, and the filly is quite shy (this will change with more handling). This is quite a contrast to the first filly born at Mountain Top this spring, Maddie, who enjoyed exploring my clothes and hair with her lips and teeth while I was trying to photograph her future playmate today.

Katie will likely not be sold, but kept for future breeding potential.

Congratulations to Katie for being our May 18th (Victoria Day!), 2009 'Horse of the Week'!
