Merck Animal Health Presents Foals Of 2016: Curious Nature

This white Thoroughbred colt by Get Stormy isn't yet three days old in this photo!

While scientists aren't quite sure whether foals are born with their own personalities or whether they develop them after birth, one thing is certain: each foal's personality is unique. Some are very curious, sticking their noses into our cameras as we watch them grow, while others hide shyly behind their mothers' sides.

This week's foals have their own personalities to show off, thanks to our sponsor Merck Animal Health. The group features the foals of Quality Road, The Factor, Get Stormy, Lemon Drop Kid, Medaglia d'Oro, Street Sense, Data Link, Kitten's Joy, Tiznow, Bernardini, and Pioneerof the Nile.
