The foal and the ball


The foal and the ball

About three years ago, my then yearling foal found an entertaining way of amusing himself. He had an old ball that he had been playing with and I think he must have got bored with the same game with it. So he came up with the idea to put the ball in his plastic feed bowl and push the whole lot around the field with the ball inside. If it came out, he just kept putting it back in. 


At least it kept him amused. Now he is a big stallion and still finds the game a lot of fun, but only if the girls are not watching him.
