Upon arriving at the barn yesterday, I went to see my girls in their paddock and found them positioned like so. They didn’t immediately detect my presence.
Though I’m not quite sure what was capturing their interest in that moment, I quickly recognized that their stance was almost symmetric in nature.
A herd often mirrors each other's movements to stay together as a single unit for protection. This stems from wild horses, who mimic the movement of predators around them in order to stay safe.
While these two have only been a herd for 6 months, I love that their connection runs so deep, as evidenced by this moment. They are always looking out for one another, both in and out of the paddock.
Who’s always got your back?
