Soleil, a newborn filly, lays in the hay as her mother Caanie eats at The Blue Heron Ranch in Sammamish on April 6, the day after her birth. The filly was born on the first sunny and warm day of the year, so the name she was given is French for sun. Both are American Quarter Horse Association horses owned by Sammamish resident Randee Fox. By Randee Fox © 2009
