“This cute little guy's name is Blitz and he is a 21 day old Haflinger foal!” was also stated in the description by user “ctw538.”
The animal trainer was walking Blitz’s mother, holding her close to him with a rope. The foal was supposed to stay close by and keep his mother’s pace, but he couldn’t resist running around the arena to the amusement of the audience.
The narrator of the parade was trying to follow his script, talking about the Haflinger breed, but the laughs of the public because of the foal’s behavior kept interrupting him, making him say that the animal was “having too much fun for its good.”
“I'm sure that Haflinger mom feels like a human mom when her kid is acting up during a church service or something,” wrote user “faroshcale,” who imagined the mother, a professional show horse, being embarrassed by her baby.
“Foals running look like two people wearing a horse costume who haven't coordinated their strides, ” added “Stallya,” making fun of the clumsy way the young horses run when they are still learning how to use their bodies.
"The foal stole the show with his cuteness!"

As funny as Blitz was in this whimsical performance, he is just one of many foals who keep stealing the netizens’s hearts with their antics. Internet can’t seem to get enough of the cuteness and silliness of these animals.
