Hendrix and Fred were demonstrating one of Tom’s favorite maxims tonight, which works hand in hand with the old adage, ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’. Certainly herd politics can be complex, especially now with the incorporation of the new horses (Vanessa has been busy in her role as ambassador for Spirit and Elf), but in the soft evening light Hendrix and Fred sure make it look easy to be friends and help each other out.
Many of our horses are friends and will engage in such rituals. Scratching each other in places that are hard to reach is adorable to watch, and must feel even better considering the bugs in New Hampshire can get bothersome. Hooray for horse friendships.
