Whitby Gazette freelancer Scott Wicking managed to capture this incredible image of a newborn foal on Tuesday.
The animal had been born just moments before and Scott said it had not yet stood up and taken its first tentative steps when he arrived on the scene.
“It was just too cute, I couldn’t resist taking a picture,” said Scott, who also owns a photographic studion in Whitby.
The foal and its mother were located in a field near Whitby Abbey, known locally as the Donkey Field, and it is believed both mother and baby are healthy.
An image of the newborn was posted on to the Whitby Gazette’s Facebook page, where it received over 104 ‘likes’.
