Luna with her 2018 filly (Moon Light) and 2017 colt (Sandstone), x2. The three walk to a new foraging area where another mare in the band and the stud are, x2.
For less than a minute, the stud exhibits normal behaviors of “running/kicking” the two year old colt out of the band, x6.
****Just before foal season begins, this is common behavior for studs to kick out two year old colts from the band. During the past 20 years, I’ve never observed an animal injured by this behavior, other than the colts feelings.
