This "band" of horses was stampeding up the beach as we passed by on the Amelia River Cruises afternoon tour. You may be able to see a week-old fowl in the middle, well protected by the rest of the herd. There was another stallion chasing from behind trying to steal a female. If these stallions are not successful at stealing a female or being accepted into a bachelor herd, they will die within three years of loneliness. Everybody needs a buddy. That's a good life lesson. If you click on the photo you can enlarge it and see the little guy a little bit better.
