Newborn horses are actually pretty independent compared to us humans. They can stand up, walk around, and even trot shortly after birth. In fact, most healthy foals are able to nurse and get around on their own within a mere two hours of arriving in this world.
But just because they are capable of many tasks doesn’t mean they do them gracefully!
A Reddit user with the handle, Peepjynx posted a hilariously adorable photo of a young foal grazing alongside his (or her) mama. Posted on June 4, the image received more than 33,000 upvotes in less than 24 hours.
What’s so funny about a grazing foal, you ask? Well, it’s not that he’s grazing, it’s how he’s grazing that is so funny!

The gangly little cutie has his front legs stretched waaaaaaay out with his goofy neck cranked between them in order to reach the grass! It looks more like an awkward attempt at a downward facing dog pose than grazing!
One Reddit user remarked, “He’s making a foal of himself!” Another added, “Epic foal!”
We all have at least one embarrassing baby photo that we wish our parents would destroy. Unfortunately for this long-legged cutie, his has gone viral!
