Although some still live in the wild, most horses and their babies, or foals, are cared for by people. This beautiful new book for primary students features different kinds of foals, the basic facts about these babies, and how they interact with other horses and with people. Extraordinary photographs and simple text describe the body parts of a foal, its first wobbly steps within an hour of being born, how its mother feeds and protects it, and how foals are groomed by people.
