Feral horses have shared the area in and around Candice and Jordan Camille’s range properties in British Columbia for years. Jordan’s role as a Range Rider, Candice writes, is to “keep an eye on the herds, the meadows, and the boundary fences.”
He just came upon a herd of stray horses at a drinking well. Normally, his presence would frighten the horses, but for some reason, they refused to budge. Because Candice is a good photographer, he informed her that the horses were approaching close range so she could picture them.
“What he didn’t comprehend was that they were defending a freshly born foal buried in deep muck at the drinking hole,” the Camilles revealed on their YouTube page. When he tried to approach the foal to liberate her, a white mare stood guard and lunged at him. A stallion kept guard over the mare as well.
Jordan was chased away by the horses multiple times. Jordan had no idea how long the foal had been trapped, but he knew she needed to be rescued if she was going to live. “Candice arrived to assist Jordan, and the two of them worked together to keep an eye on the mare and pull the foal out. The duo explains, “This film shows segments throughout what was probably two hours of taking the foal out, wiping it down, giving it electro lites, and waiting for the mare to reclaim the baby.”
