I love this Swiss State Stud video of their stallions being introduced to pasture life as a bachelor band. Of course, far from being bachelors, during late Winter and Spring, these stallions enjoy gigolo status as consorts for many mares, but this is their off season, and the Swiss State Stud decided to see if they could both save money and also provide the boys with something more closely resembling a natural horse lifestyle.
With no mares around and with enough room to roam, these horses quickly worked things out, setting up their social hierarchy, and getting on with grazing and playing horse games.
I love the horse kabuki theater of the first few minutes, a lot of ritualized screaming and posturing from The Swiss Stallions
