Could this hurt it?

I was scouring YouTube videos and found this, so I was just wondering if this could hurt the foal or not?

I personally wouldn't jump a baby that high that young. I don't think it would hurt every once in a while over really low stuff. But a baby is growing, and that impact on their front legs is not good for them at that young of an age.

I'm not a jumper, but with all the videos up that show foals jumping, it looks somewhat common. But I will say on the video you posted, that jump looks way too high for a foal. I think if you were going to do that at all (which I probably wouldn't reccommend) I would start at a lower height like this video.

That was my thinking; the impact. I wouldn't jump a baby if I had one, especially that high.

I saw that video, too, but I didn't think that was so bad. The one I posted kind of astounded me.

Ummmm... sorry, but the link isn't working for me

Call me a chicken, call me a coward, just don't call me battered up from a horse fall.

HorseOfCourse, I put the video in your post for you.

I cringed when I watched it.
I wouldn't be jumping a baby period.
