New filly Eowyn introduced by Corolla Wild Horse Fund

More good news from the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. Just about a week after announcing the birth of a new colt named Ezra, it posted this May 6 announcement after learning the gender of another new member of the herd.

It’s a girl! This is the foal we first saw a couple weeks ago but were unable to determine the sex of. Today we confirmed it is indeed a filly.

Her mother’s name is Arwen and the stallion they’re with (most likely the sire but only DNA will tell for sure) is named Rohan. So since it’s an E year we of course had to go with the name Eowyn for this filly. Someone on staff is kind of a big Lord of the Rings fan. And literally translated, Eowyn (pronounced ay•uh•wn) means “joy from horses” in Old English.

Please remember to give the horses plenty of space at all times—especially the foals. They are very fragile, impressionable and unpredictable. Parents can also become aggressive and protective if they feel threatened. Help us ensure that Eowyn and the rest of this year’s foals grow up healthy, safe, wild, and free.

  • Poor Little Eowyn

    Poor Eowyn, destined for a life of constantly being chased and harassed by dozen of big loud horse tour trucks filled to the brim with gullible tourists. If the Corolla Wild Horse Fund actually cared about these feral horses they would be working to rein in the horse tours, but that is never going to happen because this fake non-profit is controlled by the horse tour company owners.

    Been coming down here for 35 years, never once gone on a horse tour. Glad to see the locals still think every tourist comes here to see a horse.
