WILLIAMSBURG, Va. — He's a cutie!
Colonial Williamsburg Coach and Livestock's Rare Breeds program welcomed a newest arrival Fearnought a.k.a. Monty.
He's a spunky and energetic Cleveland Bay foal who was born a week ago to Isabella. In a Facebook post, Colonial Williamsburg said "this little firecracker is just as happy he’s here" as they are.
Isabella and Monty will be at pasture in the Historic Area today near Monty's young cousin Valiant and his mom Fudge.
Colonial Williamsburg launched the Coach & Livestock program in 1929 when the Foundation purchased the Goode-Merritt carriage for $500. In the decades since, the Historic Area has added many more carriages as well as other vehicles, animals and related programs.
Today, the Coach & Livestock operation helps convey the status of agriculture, the role of transportation and aspects of recreation in the 18th-century world.
For two years, the Coach and Livestock team has worked on the Colonial Williamsburg’s Cleveland Bay program. They said the program was made possible entirely through the generosity of Carolyn and Lowell Larson of Burlington, Wisconsin; Claudette and Steve Tallon of Williamsburg; Jeanne Asplundh of Fort Washington, Pennsylvania and Cindy Kiser of Verona, Virginia.
