 Wide, open range for horses to roam.

Rinki's main flew behind her freely. Her gaze locked on the horizon as she galloped. Her coat of fur kept her well hidden if she was near trees, so it was risky for her to be in such open area. Her white hoofs beat againsted the soft, yet firm, grounds as she slowed. She huffed and shook her head, blinking slowly. She turned behind her to make sure her mother didn't follow her. She was tired of always being watched over. She was grown now. Rinki stretched out her body enough to get her hungry. She bent her neck down and ate some of the tall gold brown grass near her. She liked the dried out grass better than the green. Her tail swished a few times in delight as she munched.

 Falcon lingered near the herd, feeling protective of the herd he was born
into but didn't date go back into. He took a long breath and watched as a mare crept away
from the crowd. He wondered what she was doing and why she wasn't going the other way, and
decided to go ask her why on earth was she wandering off.
It took him a gallop and a lope to get him to her, standing so far away on an offnote
ledge. He approached the mare and raised his head high, ears pricked. "What are you doin'
all the way out here?" he asked lowly, his black mane getting whipped around like a bat
out of hell. 
His urge to lean down and nip at the tasteless but crunchy grass was near overwhelming,
but it wasn't enough to make him eat it. He'd wait until she was safe and sound to go
nibble.

Rinki looked over at Falcon. He was well known in their herd, unlike her. She was just the sore thumb, easily noticed, yet easily camoflouge. She huffed and turned back to the grass. "Eating. Why?" She didn't want to mention she felt like she didn't belong. Her mane and tail blew against the wind peacefully. Rinki watched the herd move on, finding some more grass to eat. They were getting further and further away. "Shouldn't you go be with the others?"

 "Just making sure." He told her and watched the herd with soft eyes that
locked on them like a hungry hawk. Or, falcon in his case. He looked back over to the mare
and lowered his ears finally to a relaxed position. 
"No. I just watch. I belong outside the herd, not inside." He said softly, tossing his
head so his mane fell onto one side and then lowered it. He nipped at the grass and yanked
a whole bunch from the ground and chewed it slowly and swallowed.
He hated watching with a full stomach, it hindered him. If he had to run or fight to
protect he wouldn't have the energy on a full stomach.

"Just because you protect the herd doesn't mean you don't belong into it." She indicated, watching him grab his food quickly and eat slowly, just in case danger came around. "It's easier to protect the herd if you blend into it, danger is easier to detect." She took another chunk of grass into her mouth and chewed softly, careful not to eat too much as well. The mare huffed once again and hit her hoof against the ground, making a thumping noise. One, two, three-four, five. A grey rabbit with a white dot on it's back jumped out of the forest nearby and came to her. "Anything near, Mitsuki?" She asked. The rabbit's ears twitched a few times and shook its head. Rinki nodded. "Thanks. Let me know if you need anything." The rabbit nodded and waved with it's ear as it hopped away. "See? Relax. We are fine for the moment."

"I know." he murmured to her, flicking his tail. He reached down and took
another big chunk and turned around, slowly starting back to his familiar ridge he was
seen lingering on. He stood atop it, watching them down at the end of the visible plains.
He kicked off and jumped over the ledge and galloped hard close, watching two wolves slip
around the edge of the trees. The wolves showed their faces and horses whinnied and backed
away. They darted out and after a young foal, he jumped inbetween the wolves and the foal,
blowing hard, hot air from his nose. He reared up at them, the wolves growled and backed
up. Once pounced at him and bit deep into his flank, and he kicked and bucked until it
fell to the ground. He stomped on it's leg, snapping it like a twig. The animal got up and
the other wolf backed away, whimpering. The limp animal forced itself back to the edge of
the trees and in with it's partner. He huffed and turned, looking at his bleeding flank.
He sighed and walked around the herd and avoided the mares.

Rinki neighed as she was surrounded by three wolves when Falcon left to fight the two. She huffed and awaited for one to run at her. It only took a moment for one to make a move. The one to her back right came at her and she kicked her legs up, breaking the dog's neck, killing it instantly. The other two moved to attack, and she kicked the one on her back left and stomped the one infront of her after it jumped up to attack and she hit it down with her neck. The other two limped away as she kicked her white hoofs against the ground, shaking her head to show she was ok. The only thing that hurt was her left hind leg. It must've hit one of the wolves wrong and done some damage. She walked towards the herd, not wanting to run and risk hurting her leg any further.

 Falcon watched the mare who he'd not asked for a name and smirked. She was
definitely a fighter. He approached her and looked at her with narrow eyes. 
"Why didn't you tuck tail and run like every other mare would?" he asked, his head high.
He limped a little, the bite in his flank a little deep into the muscle for his taste. He
stood with his back hoof curled a little under him.

"Because I'm different." She mumbled. She then noticed his wound. "There is a lake nearby." She noted, moving her gaze up to his eyes. "If you go there and lay the wound into the water, it'd heal faster." Rinki walked around him and towards the woods. She stopped and turned towards him. "Are you coming? I'll lead you there. We always have another stallion at the ready incase the main one is injuried." Rinki jerked her head up towards the herd, just in time to see a male horse leaving the middle of the herd to watch around them. Rinki shook her head. "As I said, it's easier if you are inside the herd so the wolves can't decide which they should damage first so they can get to the others."

 He nodded, "But it's easier to see other animals from a distance. Then you
can warn them." He reminded her, being a leader for a while always helped. 
He slowly moved behind her until they reached the small pool. He stepped into the water,
it coming up to the middle of his socks. He moved farther into the water until it reached
his shoulders and hung slightly over his rump. He winced at the sting  that filled his
flank from the water's natural impurities entering it. He closed his eyes and huffed,
bringing his nose under the water and blowing bubbles.

"That's also true." She muttered. "I just wouldn't risk being as far from them as you were." Rinki's leg started to ache more. She couldn't help but to lay down on the ground. She huffed. The hurt leg twitched as the weight it held up was released from it.

 Falcon slowly climbed from the water and kneeled down on the ground,
bringing his back legs next to his front legs and laid down to get off of his hooves.
"I didn't ask your name, so what is it?" he asked,  ears turned back in discomfort.

Rinki's tail beat against the ground as it continued to swish as if she was walking. Her ears twitched a few times as she considered telling him. "Rinki." She muttered, her muzzle turned towards the forest they came from. It wasn't like it mattered, anyways. She figured in night's time he'd forget about her. "And I've heard of you, Falcon." Her body twitched some as horse flies landed on her, to get the flies to go elsewhere. Eventually, they did leave her alone. "You are popular among our herd."

 The stallion smirked and huffed modestly, "Why? I don't belong to it. I
just watch over it, my mother's still in there after all." He told her.
He watched her shoo the flies then grumbled under his breath as they made their way to
him. He was a fly magnet now that he was wet. 
Falcon laid his head down and spread his legs out before kicking them up in the air and
rolling around on his back playfully. He shifted around in the almost-mud and then got
back up, a big brown streak making itself apparent on his back.
