Fraternity of Two

The weanling colts and fillies, at this age, seem to be in a constant state of touching each other. The contact is either annoying provocation or quiet bonding. I have mentioned before that their movements remind me of a school of fish. They flow together, moving harmoniously, then suddenly break apart, scattering in many directions. Sometimes they collide, fold and bend in pairs and trios, and sometimes they form graceful lines of undulating cooperation. This image shows a quieter moment of bonding between two colts. I like this image because the shadow adds a depth and grace to their interaction.

A quieter interaction between two weanling colts shows a softer side to their behavior.
