All the Equine Sass!

When we approached the bachelors, we could see more horses in the distance. Despite enjoying the antics of the bachelors, we were curious to about the rest of the horses.

The closest horses were two bays. They were so similar in appearance it was hard to gauge their dynamic, and they eyed us wearily. We stopped to let them check us out, then edged around them. To prevent being snuck up by horses; we headed to an area that would be higher.

Before we could get too far, we stopped again. Coming out from behind the hill was more horses. They seemed like they were in a hurry, and one of the horses did not seem to want to stay with the group.

The new group moves in.

The horse would move toward the bay horses from earlier and constantly need to be snaked back. As the drama unfolded, another bay ran toward the bachelors we’d seen earlier. The grey ran to meet the horse, and one of the look a like bays also ran to greet it.

The black horse had to constantly be snaked back.

As the bay ran back to the other one, tensions continued to build. The group of horses that just came in the area tried to get out-of-the-way, but the black horse was still giving them trouble. The black horse would move toward the bays, then need to be snaked back to the band.

The horses were getting too close to one another, and in a burst they all decided to run the same direction. Hurriedly, we moved backward. We did not want to get in the horses’ way, and one of the stallions was eyeing us. We didn’t think he would harm us, but it was clear he wanted someone to antagonize. We watched from a safe distance, but decided to leave. As much as their antics were fun to watch, it was a bit too much sass for our taste.

The horses tried to challenge each other through the fence.

We decided to leave after a bay gave us a serious look.
