About two minutes after the mare scratched her back on the ground (see my previous post from yesterday), a male pinto pony followed suit. He started by using his right front hoof to paw at the ground, making clods of grass and dirt fly up and scatter. I thought he was mad at something, but shortly after that, like the mare, he simply fell to the ground.
