Pregnant Mare

Here is a pregnant pony and her foal. She spends her days avoiding amorous advances of half a dozen stallions, whilst also trying to protect her foal.

A dark blue Land Rover Discovery sped across this large field as I watched the horses yesterday morning. It came to an abrupt halt and a man quickly got out of the cab and opened the tailgate. He reached down and lifted something from the ground, roughly throwing it in the back of the vehicle. I couldn’t see what it was, and I wonder if it was a dead foal. The man quickly got back into the cab and sped off.

    What do you think the man wanted with the dead foal? Horse meat? 😦
