Owyhee and Shuksan: To get the other guy to run, it's always good to try to bite him where he won't like it! At this age (and without hormones and fighting teeth), it's just another fun game.
Wrestling is what long necks are good for! Right now it's exploration and play; in just over a year, it will begin to get serious and not-fun-at-all ... unless the participants are castrated before puberty, in which case it may remain play for several more years before peetering out (rather than escalating into fighting). Shuksan (over the top) has since been castrated; Owyhee (underneath) was kept under evaluation longer, but he, too, is now a much-happier gelding (and we wish we'd made up our minds to castrate him sooner!).
