A Foal is due….
Soon we will hear the patter of little hooves here at Morvern Valley. In Spring 2012 a little miniature foal is due to our mare ‘Toffee’ and our stallion ‘Chocolate’. Toffee is looking lovely and round and is enjoying all the sweet treats we offer.
Miniature horses originated in Europe, in the 1700’s, when royalty kept these tiny equine specimens in their zoos. They are very hardy and often live for between 25 and 30 years. We already know that the foal will be a lovely warm caramel colour and the foal will be named ‘Caramel’.
The baby foal when born will be around 30 cms high and weigh under 10 kilos!
