    That is the sweetest thing ever. I love how they grey one really tilts his head to help his friend out. I am surprised this video hasn't gone more viral. The cutest thing I have seen awhile.

    Cute.
    So nice when the sorrel waits patiently there, doesn't get anxious.

    When our stallion was getting older, we bought a yearling colt, that we kept in a stall with a run adjacent to the gelding pasture.
    We fed first the gelding pasture their alfalfa flakes, then went around to the stalls to feed there.

    My cowhorse would, when we fed the geldings, pick up a whole flake of alfalfa and walk over to the fence and feed it to the colt.
    He didn't want him to stand there hungry.

    Once the colt was here long enough to learn our routines, when we turned him out with the geldings, he already had a good friend to show him the ropes, that took very good care of him.

    Sweet video ! I had the opposite of sharing going on in my barn. I had a hay stealing large standard donkey. The horse and donkey's run in stalls were across from each other and opened onto an aisleway. In the winter i would give the boys a treat at night. Along with their grass hay, they would each get a small flake of 3rd cut alfalfa. One night i watched the donkey walk across into the horse's stall, pick up the flake of alfalfa and then backup several feet into his own stall, stockpiling the 2 flakes. I just laughed and took it from him. The clever little schemer tried it again the next night so I solved that by always shaking out the alfalfa flake over top of the grass hay.

    That is adorable! Goes to show, like some humans, some horses just don't like to dine alone.

    Reminds me when I go out to dinner with DH and he wants to try something off my plate!
