Hurry up Mum!

 Hurry up Mum, come and play with me.....

We can run and twist and buck.  We can run really fast!!!

Then we can rest. 

We went to a farm today that had 4 new foals, this little guy put on quite the show racing around his Mum. She paid no attention to him kept grazing the whole time he raced around. He was showing off his racing potential at all of about three weeks old!
He was in a big hurry to show his speed, for illustration friday hurry challenge and paint party friday.

Such fun. Reminds me of a book I read as a child. I'm trying to remember the name of the foal in it.

A quick google and we have ... Merrylegs!
