Safety in Momma's Shadow

I simply cannot resist painting these two, so ya'll will just have to forgive me for a while as I get them out of my system.
When I went out to feed them this afternoon, Georgia, the Border-Collie-Wanna-Be, followed me, as is her custom , and attempted to get the foal to play. She is still a little tentative but after a few tight runs around her momma, she took off in a huge, bucking leap - unfortunately, neither Georgia or the foal were properly prepared and Georgia was run over in a tangle of gangly legs. The dog yelped as if hit by a truck, but no actual damage was done. She will, however, now be more cautious, I suspect, in her games of tag with animals bigger than herself - and this is a good thing. She plays tag with Easy, the racehorse that doesn't want to run, but they both seem to know that a one thousand pound horse needs to be careful where he places his feet, and no one ever gets hurt - although I wave witnessed some close calls.
Psalm 40:2
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
