This filly by Hat Trick embodies the notion of "kicking up your heels"

Like any youngster, foals love their play time. While it may wear their mothers' patience thin, playful exuberance is important for building the strong musculoskeletal systems that will support the foals later in life on the racetrack. Play time also develops the foal's social skills, both in relation to the mother and to other horses.

Thanks to our sponsor Merck Animal Health, this week's foals can be seen kicking up their heels in several different directions. The group features the first foals of Will Take Charge, Winslow Homer, and Noble Mission, as well as those of Hat Trick, Trappe Shot, Ghostzapper, Congrats, Scat Daddy, Wrote, Elusive Quality, and Candy Ride.
