Three-Day-Old Miniature Horse Chases Owner Around Corral
A newborn miniature horse gives a fully grown man a run for his money as it chases him around its pen. The foal's mother keeps her eye on the pair while they engage in this cute encounter only days after the foal's birth.
Many people confuse miniature horses with ponies but actually they are not the same. While ponies have “shorter legs, wider barrels, and a thicker neck,” a miniature horse is basically “bred to be more refined than the pony, with a long, flexible neck, straight legs, and a short back,” according to Horse Illustrated. Miniature horses are a sought after breed and look incredibly cute.
One very young miniature horse recently caught people’s attention when a video of a 3-day-old miniature horse playfully chasing one of its breeders, a fully grown man named Sterling, around its pen went viral.
Considering the fact that this miniature horse was born three days before this video was recorded it’s quite impressive to see how well it is galloping and how much it is enjoying to chase Sterling. It seems however that the young foal is actually more excited about catching her breeder instead of only chasing him. As Sterling lets the adorable miniature horse catch up to him, it rubs against him with joy in the hope of being cuddled by her human friend.
While the three-day-old horse and Sterling are romping around, the foal’s mother, Grace, doesn’t let the two out of sight. Still, she doesn’t seem to be worried about her little one at all, instead, she contently watches it chasing their breeder. One can tell that she knows Sterling won’t ever harm the foal.
