We have a final shot of Smokey out and about with some of his favorite fillies in Versailles, Kentucky, who happen to have very familiar faces. We have seen Smokey pop up at Safari North throughout the season, and we love seeing him again one last time with Season 5's first foal, Traveling Tiger 22, and her pasture buddies. A big thanks to Smokey for his hard work and to Emma for sending this photo our way!

We received this submission from a long-time Foal Patrol follower in Michigan over the weekend. We thank Gail for asking great questions and for her engagement with Foal Patrol. 

"Congratulations on a very well done Foal Patrol Season! I have learned so much from the Education blog and appreciate all the features for fans of all ages. You have done a fantastic job answering so many questions, communicating with the participating farms and sharing so many updates, resources, photos and videos.

One of the things that impressed me this year was the very timely communication between Foal Patrol and the farms when we followers submitted concerns about things we observed and didn't understand. You were then able to respond quickly to us, both personally and with an update on Foal Patrol, with appropriate links on the Education blog to help educate us about the different circumstances... Life for humans and animals is not always predictable, even in the best of circumstances! Openness and honesty are what allow us to support each other."

It's tough to say who is watching over who in this great shot of our Foal Patrol mascot with three 2021 fillies at Hermitage Farm in Kentucky. From left to right are a Twirling Candy filly out of Fiesta, a Blame filly out of Always Pleasant, and a Vino Rosso filly out of Cool and Stormy. We thank our friends in Kentucky for sharing this shot with us, and happy wishes to these fillies!
