Born Under a Mars Sky

There have been a lot of large, well developed foals born this year which makes this newborn appear slight. Actually, she is a normal newborn in every way.

Her disposition appears bold even at the tender age of a few hours. Her percieved fierceness is accentuated by her full white face mask and intentional eye contact.

Because she represents a vital force to me I will call her Valor.
