Keepers at Western Plains Zoo have been very happy about a new Przewalski’s Horse foal that was born recently. She is part of a big herd at the Zoo and is getting to know all the other horses now.
The little foal is quite fond of running and jumping around and keeping her mother busy. She still drinks milk, but is starting to try new solid foods and she likes apples.
This beautiful little foal didn’t have a name for a while and so the keepers thought they would ask people on their Facebook page for suggestions.
One lady called Jessica suggested the name – ‘Altani’, because it means ‘golden’ in the Mongolian language. Altani certainly is golden in colour and suits her name.
