A zoo spokesperson said the foal is "up, walking strong and closely shadowing its mother."

Minnie is also doing well.

"Minnie was getting very big; we knew it was a matter of days before her baby would make its appearance," senior zookeeper Jill Erzar said. "There were no complications and mother and baby appear to be doing great."

The foal and Minnie can be seen at the zoo's outdoor zebra and kudu exhibit.
