The five-day-old foal trots wonderfully in the arena with his mother! (Video)

I could watch this little cutie running and dancing all day.

Foals are amazing as they get to act like grown horses just a few days after they’re born.

Mathilde, Sjirkje’s foal, was only 5 days old when she was let out for the first time.

You can sense her excitement building up as she and her mother walked out of the stables. There was a certain spring in her step and it was clear she was ready to meet the world.

At first, Mathilde was uneasy.
It was raining outside and puddles puzzled her. In that short moment, she tried to talk herself into stepping through or jumping over it all together.

Eventually, her handler coaxed her and assured her that she was fine. With renewed confidence, she followed her mother into the arena.

It was the place where Mathilde experienced how it felt to run wild.

As the mother and daughter were left to discover the place, the two didn’t waste any time.

Mother horse she has done this a lot of times before and it was now Mathilde’s time to learn.

Watch how a foal melted hearts when she ran with her mom for the first time:
