Comfort Zone

This new foal changes her body language to guarded, reading cues from her nervous mother. As the years pass, I am able to get closer, more often, to this mare. She takes no chances with being put at risk, and that gets doubled when she has a foal to protect. I don’t want to upset her so I steer a wide course to respect her comfort zone.
