SHE’S a little unsteady on her feet but has a lot to look up to.
The foal is the first new arrival of 2008 at the Cotebrook Shire Horse Centre & Countryside Park.
Set in 50 acres in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, the centre is home to the internationally renowned Cotebrook Shire Horse Stud which has been breeding prize winning Shires for over 35 years.
The as yet unnamed foal is likely to be named after a Scottish loch as are other mares at the centre.
It will take a little time yet before she weighs the typical 900kg, approaching a ton, for her breed.
As well as Shire horses, the centre has a wide selection of British animals and bird life, both wild and domesticated, including many rare breeds.
Visitors can see a miniature Shetland pony, pigs, Aberdeen Angus cattle, birds of prey, red deer, foxes and squirrels, polecats and otters.
