This tiny foal looks like its enjoying a Swiss roll while playing with a yoga ball.

As Anja Heppener tended to her miniature horses at home in Lijnden, Netherlands, a stray exercise ball blew into the fields.

With one of the playful foals spotting the addition, it quickly inspects the inflatable with its nose.

After a couple of attempts to push the ball around, the foal rolls straight off it and falls on its back.

Anja, from Lijnden, Netherlands, said: “It was most certainly horse versus ball, and this time the ball won.

“I have a Staffordshire bull terrier called Tara and she loves playing with the foals.

“She has played with them ever since she was a puppy.”
