But exciting sounds-of nearby horses, the farm dog, and cats outside the barn-keep her ears occupied and Lady Thistle isn't focused on eating. Polly knows her tiny filly needs to nurse and get the nutrients she needs...but she's just so distracted The farm family and the veterinarian are attentive and offer a helping hand to ensure Lady Thistle starts off on the right hoof.
