That's a difficult one. I think the first reaction is to be outraged, but you have to consider how much wear and tear a foal puts on it's own joints. The amount of TEARING around they'll do, and leaping straight into the air and jumping logs in the pasture, I honestly don't think I see it hurting the foal if you're running it through a chute just to grab a video for potential buyers.
I don't know that I would personally do it, but having been raised around foals, they do FAR worse to themselves just playing.
