Each day is a new adventure when you’re a foal, but sometimes those adventures require a little help. Thankfully, if you’ve got a good mom, she can help you work through the sticky stuff—like jumping the strange little wall that cuts through your field AND TOTALLY FREAKS YOU OUT.

What’s most impressive about this video of a Paso Fino mare and foal (besides its insane cuteness) is the learning process that’s clearly taking place. Watch as the mare comes back to help her foal, then teaches him how to prepare and get a running start before jumping. Horses are just full of surprises, aren’t they?
