We can all agree that baby foals are some of the most adorable creatures in the world. At the moment that they are born, they are very curious about everything around them and willing to learn new things. Also, as soon as they start walking, it will be very difficult to stop them. They are like fireballs of energy. It seems like they never get tired. If you leave them free, they will walk around the barn the whole day while their parents might probably lay down on the ground as they can’t follow up with their babies’ energy.
Unfortunately, because they do not have full control of their legs, it might be the cause for a lot of incidents that we would never like to happen, that is why we as horse owners should be really careful to check them all the time as they might end up in unnecessary, dangerous situation like this foal in the video below. All babies are cute and adorable and this includes also baby horses.
As a matter of fact, there are a few things cuter than seeing a foal trying to learn to run with those legs that look like the foal isn’t in control of them. What you are going to watch in the video is a two-day-year old foal who is just trying to figure out how to use those long legs.
You see her at the beginning approaching her mother and then going towards the fence to explore the surrounding but then she decides it’s time to learn to do something more than just walking. The little cutie decides to run to her mother apparently she doesn’t know how to stop and just crashes into her mother and falls down.
Fortunately, she was not hurt and stood up immediately to her feet but you will watch how the mother reacts. At the moment of the crash the mother is startled and then she is like “What the heck are you doing?” I am so glad that nothing bad happens and I really hope that such a situation does not repeat again not only for this foal, but every other foal out there.
Lol…baby boys first crash! He's fine fyi :)WHR Reese's Pieces (12hh) X The Risk Factor (11.2hh) colt at only 2 days old!
