ABC Wednesday: Foals
On a recent Sunday morning we drove out to the ranch where our horse Mocha has been boarded since we moved to town last year, to visit him and take our dogs on a hike. Our plan to visit Mocha was Foiled when we Found he'd been moved to a new pasture but no one was around who knew where to Find him. But our trip there wasn't a total Failure - it was a Fabulous day, we enjoyed a Fantastic hike, and I had great Fun photographing these Friendly, Funny, Fetching Foals...
A Fun Face-off with the Fotographer ;-)
"Feeding time is my Favorite!"
All the poor Foal on the left Felt like doing was Finishing his Forty winks in the sun, but his Feisty little Friends Fussed with him relentlessly...
After several Futile attempts to Fend them off, he Finally Forfeited his nap and got to his Feet. But not before giving me a Frustrated look that seemed to say...
"Do you see what Foalishness I have to put up with?" :-)

There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.
~John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
