Winter Stallion

Winter Stallion

The mare that belonged in this stallion's herd delivered a still-born colt on a cold January morning. For some reason, it triggered a nearby male to attempt to steal away the mother of the lifeless colt, and the white stallion had a very brutal fight to keep the unfortunate female.

He is captured in this frame as he returns from chasing away the persistent challenger.
