Tiny Foal Steals Limelight From Draft Horses

A Falabella cross foal has been born at Norfolk‘s Shire Horse Centre, and she’s stealing the limelight from the bigger horses.


The short and the tall of it: Arabella the Falabella and Jasper the Shire horse, with centre owner David Bakewell.

Honey’s foal Arabella, now three weeks old, is a popular part of the regular mare and foal parades.

At just 21 inches high (five hands), the tiny foal is working alongside the giants of the centre, the six-feet tall (18hh) Shire horses.

Children get the chance to bottle feed Arabella during the twice-daily mare and foal parades.

Other activities include small animal feeding and handling sessions at the children’s farm and heavy horse working demonstrations.

Norfolk Shire Horse Centre is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
