Pintura and and her babysitter keep two geldings away from their colt

The grey mare is Pintura, a 12-year-old Paso Fino (www.pfha.org). She is the mother of Tigger, a dun month old colt. The buckskin mare is Sunny, a Spanish Mustang registered with Horse of the Americas www.horseoftheamericas.com. She is Tigger's babysitter.

The bay gelding is Flair. He's had a lot of experience as a babysitter. He used to be Pintura's best friend. However, in the last month of Pintura's pregnancy, she decided she didn't want him around her any more.

The paint is Chester, a retired roping horse, and he doesn't have a clue about how to babysit colts
