Every move my neighbor's horse made, the Cattle Egret followed.

The egret shows up in the summertime, feasting off the insects that bother the farm animals. Usually, I see flocks of them, in the pasture, with the herds of cattle. This was the first time I saw a single egret with a horse.
Hey...wait for me !!
Once, the horse stepped too quickly. You can see the egret stretched out, racing to catch up.
Two different creatures.... completely at ease in each other's company.
