I couldn’t resist. The babies were close to the water tank and windmill in the corner of the pasture near the road. After a quick turnaround, I parked as near as I could to take photos. Watching for snakes and hoping chiggers weren’t out yet, I walked over to the fence. While the mares grazed, one foal was taking a nap while two others had their heads over each other’s shoulders, scratching one another with their teeth. These little ones had already learned how to cooperate to solve the itchy back problem. It made me think, wouldn’t it be great if we humans were more cooperative in solving our problems. It’s not as if we don’t know how.
