The Epitome of Lazy

Our last stop before heading home was The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary. Like most of the days on the trip, it was drizzly, but that didn’t detour us from exploring the area around the visitor’s center. We were told they were breeding Choctaw horses, and we were eager to see the young foal we had been told about.

When we got there, the filly and her mother Goblin were resting. As we approached, the filly sat up, but goblin remained still. The filly licked her lips, then stood, long legs in different directions. She circled her mother, than moved to Goblin’s flank.

The filly had the best expressions.

The filly was hungry, but rather than stand like what would be custom, Goblin rolled on her side more to let her filly access milk easier.

Once the filly began slurping, Goblin lifted her head to nuzzle her filly’s leg.

Once done, the filly flops back down for another rest.

Then, when the filly had her fill, she flopped back next to her mom. We watched for a little while longer, before letting the horses continue to be lazy.
