Tarika, the yearling filly brought into the band in April. Tarika appeared to be in season. The cremello filly Pearl behind the palomino filly Sandstone with the pregnant mare, Luna, on the right. The palomino stud, Cody, was walking towards his band, out of the first photograph.
We only observed Luna’s band for a few minutes. During that time, we observed a mare behavior we don’t see too often. The band was foraging all was well. Then when Cody approached Tarika, Luna charged the two. Within a minute, all were back to foraging.
