CARTERET Co., N.C. – A new foal was born sometime near when Hurricane Dorian struck the area of Shackleford Banks, and she is the cutest thing!

Cape Lookout National Seashore announced the arrival of the foal in a post on Thursday, and officials aren’t sure if she was born before, during or after the storm.

The close-up baby picture was taken with a telephoto lens. Officials want to remind you to stay at least 50 feet away from the horses, and even more space for a mare with a new foal.

The baby and new mom need time and space to bond – so only take photos using a telephoto lens.
