January 1 is the traditional time for foaling season in for Thoroughbred breeders. As baby horses emerge throughout the spring, we’ll be featuring some of the cutest and most notable newborns we see featured on Twitter. Come back every Sunday to start your week off right!
You have to love the expression on new mother Cooking Mama’s face as she meets her brand-new daughter of American Lion!
This son of Kitten’s Joy and Maid Service already looks strong and confident at just four hours old:

This little guy looks like he’s going to be a curious one!
This daughter of Baltimore Bob and Expected Pleasures is already showing some serious attitude!
This son of Gemologist and Saratoga Glen is really, really fuzzy – check out those ears!
This little daughter of Proclamation shows off quite the strut as she follows her mother!

We can’t top the description in the tweet. Seriously: that face. We’re swooning over this son of Orientate and Beautiful Lu.
If this isn't the cutest face you've seen all day, then we've failed you. B.c. Orientate-Beautiful Lu, foaled 3/23. pic.twitter.com/5kZ2Oy2qtG— MarylandTB (@MarylandTB) April 11, 2014
She’s gorgeous! Check out all of the chrome (the horse world’s word for white markings) on this daughter of Uptown Charlybrown and Nureyev’s Ballet:
Mama Louvakhova and her daughter by Arch each grab a snack just two hours after the filly was born. Looks like a happy and healthy pair!
We had a filly 2 hours ago by Arch out of Louvakhova. Big pedigree, mare won a stake & is a half to Flotilla. pic.twitter.com/Hp0VTLXnHs— Craig Bernick (@craigb1818) April 13, 2014
Check out this (very!) newborn son of Harlan’s Holiday and Motivated Sreva – he’s a big guy for a foal that’s just a few minutes old!
