There are so, so, so many things to learn about when you’re born and first experiencing the world.

Like what that fleshy thing is that dangles from your mouth.

And why it’s so darned hard to control.

Sometimes you can use it to help suckle milk from your mama.

And other times you can use it to lick everything in sight.

Those are good.

But then there are other times.

The frustrating times.

The embarrassing times when you can’t seem to get control of your tongue.

You stick it out to lick something and it won’t go back in your mouth!

It flops to one side of your mouth like it didn’t even belong there.


So many things for a new colt to learn.
