We got a break in the weather yesterday so Deb went down to the pasture to spend some time with the horses. They were eager to get out to graze. They were close to the fence that sections off Favorito's pasture so Alexios took some time to interact with his dad.
At first things were very sweet between them. Alexios made all the appropriate submissive gestures, and Favorito approved.
They stood together, Favorito keeping watch while Alexios grazed.
They strolled together down the fence line. Poesia and Anastacia were close by but didn't seem at all perturbed by their interaction.
Right after this nose sniffing. Alexios decided that he would try to act the little stallion with his father. He can be a bit too full of himself and chose the wrong moment to display that.
Favorito decided that he needed a lesson in what it really means to be a stallion. He can be quite impressive with his displays.
Alexios was promptly put in his place.
It is times like these that he turns to Mom for comfort.
Nothing like a good, long drink to make life a little better.
He meekly wandered back over to Favorito, this time to be the student of the stallion.
And a footnote for those that are interested. Alexios is now shedding on his neck - if you look closely you can see the darker brown starting to come through.
