Foals! Foals! Foals!
It's our favourite time of the year at the Suffolk Horse Society, with notifications coming in thick and fast about the new foals arriving.
Please check our Facebook page facebook.com/Suffolkhorsesociety for the most recent updates, and our Foal Watch page on the website suffolkhorsesociety.org.uk/horse-business/foal-watch/
On the 1st of May, the total stands at 15 foals on the ground - 9 of which are colts, and 6 are fillies. (The figure on the Foal Page is slightly below this as we wait for permission to announce names)
If you are a breeder, please don't forget to notify us as soon as possible of all foalings, so that we can send you out your registration form.
