f. = filly
雌の子馬


Explanation:
A filly is a young female horse too young to be called a mare. There are several specific definitions in use.
* In most cases filly is a female horse under the age of four years old.
* In some nations, such as the United Kingdom, the world of horse racing sets the cutoff age for fillies as younger than five years.
The equivalent term for a male is a colt. When horses of either sex are less than one year of age, they are referred to as foals.[2] Horses between one and two years of age may also be called yearlings.
