The mares wanted to save them, but fear of this new unknown stopped most of them in their tracks. A young mare called to her captured foal as the little filly was pulled away from her family. In a few short moments the mother broke away from the others and began to chase after her daughter. The little gray mare managed to get beside the filly quite quickly. But upon noticing the mare right behind them, one of the riders suddenly had a dark, shiny thing in his hand. There was a loud, sharp noise and the gray horse dropped to the ground. She didn't even make the tiniest movement.
