How old is a foal before it can walk?

A foal will begin to try to stand within just a few minutes of being born. They will be very wobbly and uncoordinated but should be able to stand on their own in about 1 hour. (If they are not standing on their own within about 2 hours, you should consult with your vet.)

By 3 hours old, they should be standing on their own and nursing from mama. :D

Incredible, huh?
