Are you ready for this?
We dropped in on a buddy's boarding barn recently. There's a small pen across from the barn holding a mare and her filly. Honestly, we could not get past the barn.
She wouldn't let us.
We had to stop and let her walk up to the fence, all full of curiosity, for a visit.
If you have never had the opportunity to pet a baby horse, I strongly recommend you find a way to get this experience. It's amazing how soft these little critters are. If you're lucky enough to find a foal who's not shy and lets you near, you'll fall in love. See that curly little forelock? Oh my gosh, and those fuzzy ears. I'm about to melt over here, people. Those incredibly soft little fuzzy ears.
She's a very friendly little critter. I'm sure being next to a large barn and being in contact with about 50 other horses and all their associated people has socialized her well in her short life.
Either that or she saw us comin' from a mile away...
