Celine L., Age 10
Iím a new born foal. In my eyes the world is new.
The smell of sweet hay is strange to me.
My mother is near me to keep me safe.
I drink my motherís milk, itís the sweetest taste.
The first time I went outside with my mom,
I felt a gentle breeze on my baby fur.
The sun is shining Ė the grass is green and
Beautiful flowers all around me.
All day I jump Ė And roll on the ground Ė
I run and play with the other foals.
When itís time to go back in the stables
My mother whinnies for me.
But I still would like to play.
But my mommy knows best.
