Karen Kohl-Trauger of Sprakers, N.Y., won third place with this photo of her thoroughbred filly, Snowbird, who lost her dam at birth.
At about 2 weeks old, we learned of another orphan filly at a nearby farm, so the babies were placed together and became instant friends!
This photo is of her 5-year-old daughter, Carrie Trauger, visiting Snowbird for the first time in a few weeks after she had gone to live with the other orphan foal.
Carrie had bottle fed and cared for Snowbird from the first hours, so she is very attached and loves her a lot!
The red sheen on the photo is the color from an infra-lamp giving off heat to keep the filly warm.
