Photo: Young Foal Horse Port De La Bonaigua Pyrenees Catalonia Spain

A young foal, a horse, walks down a precarious rocky slope at Port de la Bonaigua (Bonaigua Pass) at about 2,072 metres in teh Pyrenees Mountain Range in Catalonia, Spain. About 75 species of wildlife can be found in these mountains.

Treading carefully, a cute young Foal makes it's way downhill at Port de la Bonaigua (Bonaigua Pass) which is situated 2,072 metres above sea level in the Pyrenees Mountain Range of Catalonia, Spain.

A foal is a young horse that is under a year old. When a foal is born it is very quickly able to stand up as well as to run - possibly in order to escape predators or to reach its mothers milk. A foal is usually weaned between 5 to 7 months old. In the wild, young foals have to be protected from predators especially when they are first born, and they would be an easy target for some predators on the mountains.

... These horses have been living in these mountains for hundreds of years and they can be quite shy animals. Young Foals grow so rapidly however that they should be able to protect themselves and run free on the mountainside within a couple of days.
