One of the more beautiful and hopeful signs of spring is when the mares and foals are turned out to pasture. There are many horse farms in northern Illinois, including large thoroughbred race horse operations.
What seemed like an interminable wet, cold and grey spring gives way to a perfectly clear and sunny sky. As the sun sets the light catches a mare grazing with her foal shadowing her every move.
