Mom! He's Touching Me!

I watched  the first day of school for about a dozen young colts at a ranch in Larkspur, Colorado. They all had halters on for the first time and were having a tough time adjusting to them. I think the halter on this one's friend bothered him more than the halter on himself. I was lucky to capture the moment. It didn't take long for them to get used to their new tack.
