Thoroughbreds in North America all celebrate their birthdays on Jan. 1, so as soon as the New Year rolls around, so does “foaling season” – that magical time that lasts from the beginning of January through the late spring when racehorse babies are born. In this weekly piece, we bring you the best of new arrivals to the Thoroughbred world. So sit back, relax, and take in the Cute Foals of the Week for 2018! Want to see cute foals in person? Be sure to visit Horse Country!
Can’t get enough cute foals? Then you need to check out Foal Patrol, the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s livestream site showing the lives of Thoroughbred mothers and babies! Sabbatical just had her colt at Claiborne Farm, and you can watch them live here; Stopchargingmaria and her baby are live at Three Chimneys farm, too! Want to watch La Verdad and her adorable daughter? They’re right here. And finally, Centre Court and her new little one at Shawnee Farm are right here!
Bonus Cute Animal of the Week:
Every week we feature another adorable animal in addition to our cute foals. This week, we have a very sassy baby tapir!
