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