Someday Elahn will learn it's less effort to NOT step over the grass ... probably when he's larger, has more weight, and it actually IS less effort. :-)

Notice that both of Elahn's left legs are well off the ground. In any quadruped, pairing the same-side legs at a walking speed slows forward motion; thrusting with one at a time in even intervals maximizes power and forward speed. In this case, Elahn is being careful (because of that TALL grass), feels a need to slow down, and his footfall pattern changes to achieve that without any specific thought from him ... because, although it was a more concious part of his initial coordination discoveries, all the necessary stuff for "slow down" is now muscle memory.
