Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us haven't been able to see our close friends as much and how we'd like. Two-year-old Ellie Driscoll doesn't have that problem, as her best friends are a pair of Standardbred foals.

CTV News recently caught up with Christa and Ellie Driscoll in Lower Onslow, N.S. Ellie is absolutely smitten with a pair of foals that her family boards for owners Doug Polley and Gordon McComb of Rockin In Heaven fame. One of the foals that Ellie has grown attached to is in fact the first foal of Rockin In Heaven.

"She believes they're her best friends," Christa told CTV News. "She wakes up in the morning and asks if she can talk out the door to say 'hello' and she wants to say 'good night' to them. Before they were even born when they were in their bellies, she was counting down the days until they were on the ground."
