The alpha stallion is at the right front of the picture.  The oldest colt of the alpha stallion is at the right rear of the picture.  Between the alpha stallion and the colt is a young filly from their band.  The young filly will not go to get a drink of water by herself because she is afraid.  There are other horses drinking and she is afraid of them.  She needs to drink as it will be a long time before she gets another chance.  So the alpha stallion and colt flank the filly and take her to water.  She then gets her drink while under their protection.
