A mother would do anything for her babies, even risk her own life so that the baby is not hurt or injured. And this is exactly what you are going to watch in this video, how a mare protects her newborn foal despite being alone and surrounded by a herd of wild horses. The mare sees the wild horses approaching and stands up immediately to the protection of her little one.
She doesn’t care if she herself is hurt or injured as long as her loved one is out of danger and all right. She surely does a fine and great job and it is amazing how the mother circles and kicks like crazy and at the same time manages to not hurt or damage the foal. Such a precision for the mama pivoting around her foal and protecting and defending her loved one. The mother has the opportunity to be calm and relax after the other mares and stallions of the herd come.
It is incredible how the aggressors calm down when the other herd comes to help the alone mare fighting to protect her foal. The presentation of this entertaining yet educational video is to be appreciated but we should know that this is some wild horse behavior and can happen in the wild. Watch the video!
