There is nothing at all as precious as a foal learning to stand/walk.
'yeah, so that didn't work out so well. think i'll stay down here for a minute.'

My DH would say I sometimes have the same problem with my balance mechanism, too. A common phrase in our house is "balance is good," but it's not always easy.
