Two new foals welcomed to Corolla wild horse herd

The Corolla Wild Horse fund recently introduced two new foals born to the herd.

“Benjamin, a colt, was born on April 11 and Bridget, a filly, was born on April 23. Both babies have attentive and experienced parents and are doing well! The count for 2021 so far is five – one colt, three fillies, and one yet to be determined,” stated the announcement.

The Corolla Wild Horse Fund reminded all to “keep [your] distance from these new families. Fifty feet at minimum. Do not exit your vehicle or climb the dunes to get closer to them – it’s dangerous for them and for you. Each one of these foals is critically important to the long-term survival of the Corolla herd. We need them to grow up healthy, strong, and wild! Please help us make sure that happens.”
