Another new foal, at least the third of the season, was born this week on Cape Lookout National Seashore’s Shackleford Banks.

The latest newborn was first sighted Thursday and was probably born on Tuesday, the National Park Service said in a Facebook post.

She has two older siblings still in the harem with her dam: a 5-year-old mare (who normally would have left the harem before now) and a 2-year-old filly. All four of them have matching white stars on their faces.
