Altruism or Jealousy In Horses? Shetland Pony Defends Little Foal Against Stallion

Altruism is a term that is used when somebody does something for somebody else without getting his own benefit. What you are going to watch in this video is little Tibor helping his friend, the miniature, against danger of the presence of a crossbreed Lusitano stallion.

There is no family relationship in them, but still this behavior fascinates us, we do not know why he does do as it does not benefit him, it benefits the little one, so all this might fit in the definition of altruism. Animals share some of the same emotions as people and they can also feel jealousy and maybe it is hard to tell from the video whether Tibor is protecting the foal from the stallion or whether he is simply jealous.

But at the end of the video we can see little Tibor poking his head up when he notices the stallion moving behind them. Apparently, he is keeping an eye on him. Watch the video and you judge if it is altruism or jealousy. Share your opinions with us!
