When a foal steps out of your story-book imagination and into your arms, the effect is profound.
The look, feel and smell of this beautiful creature completely intoxicates your senses.
And when another foal joins in and they take turns nuzzling you, the feeling of connectedness with nature is unbelievable.
The mares don’t let everyone play with their babies: only the pure of heart. They can see right through you and they’ll violently defend against any perceived threat.
This makes it all the more amazing when they’re content to stand off and watch you romp in the grass with their offspring. Fabulous!
