newborn coltNPR’s Noah Adams spent some time in Lexington recently, where it’s foaling season on thoroughbred farms. He spoke with Eduardo Terrazas, who owns a boarding farm where 51 foals are expected this season—each of which Terrazas will deliver himself. He drinks a lot of coffee.

The story also takes us to Kentucky’s two equine hospitals, where foals who have medical problems after birth receive medical care.
