Doctor Mark at Disney shared the following about the foals:

Our ranch hands have had some extra fun on their hands lately! Over the last two months, we’ve welcome Finn and Sprout, the two newest Shetland pony foals to join the herd at Tri-Circle-D Ranch at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground.

Sprout was born on Earth Day and was named after the celebration! He’s the second pony to be born this year, joining one-month-old, Finn.

These two independent and inquisitive foals join the nearly 90 horses at Tri-Circle-D Ranch, who delight our guests each and every day through pony and horseback trail rides, wagon rides and private carriage rides.
