hobbles of some sort. I noticed that too.

I really don't think this is that big of a deal... Yeah, it's kind weird, but that foal isn't abused or neglected or hurt. The guy was just playing. The foal seems to like people and honestly, I HIGHLY doubt the foal will voluntarily jump on someone's shoulders when she grows up. She isn't even doing it now.. the guy is lifting her up. And unless he does this EVERY single day, giving her cookies and treats for dancing with him, I honestly doubt this will develop into some sort of dangerous thing. Look, she follows him when he walks away, and he gives her a good scratch. Not a rough slap... come on guys, give the old dude a break. I've seen Russians do stranger things, lol.

I'm so busy, I don't know if I've found a rope... or lost my horse...

I agree, he's not hurting the foal as far as I can see =/

Yeah, I think it's one of those situations where you WANT to be offended because it just seems so disrespectful and rude (the guy looks half drunk to boot), but realistically, I don't know that I can find much "physically" wrong with it.

It's a toss up if the foal will learn to jump on people, it looks so docile natured it's just like "whatever, you're an idiot". Actually, that is a REALLY good looking foal, I'm a little jealous.

I'll join the ranks of just scratching my head and going "why????"

Silly man really...he could injure himself or the foal or both....
But like the previous few posts I don't think its abuse, or cruelty (foals play on each others backs in the field all day long in similar ways)...but I do think he is a foolish twit...
