The mare, Lebrera, wants the grass near the fence, but isn’t sure about Fabuloso standing there. So, she tells him to move, but he wants to check out his foal. Bravo wants to talk to daddy, too, but mommy says NO...<br /> <br /> The main thing for me in this clip is that it clearly shows what I call «calming signals». The signs of aggression are often talked about, but I don’t think I have heard people mention the signals they use when they want to show that they are no threat. The stallion is showing this very clearly; his posture is similar to a sleeping posture with his ears hanging to the sides.<br /> <br /> The mare responds to this signal by settling down a little, but as soon as he makes a little move she warns him. Her communication with both the stallion and the foal is very clear. It needs to be mentioned that this mare and the stallion has lived together for a year and has only been separated for the first few days after the foal was born in order to give the mare a little peace. As soon as she shows that she is ready the horses are placed together again.
