Power steering fluid

Hello everyone, I just bought a 2006 F250 with about 45k on it. Overall, I'm very happy with the truck.

Yesterday, while checking the fluid levels, I noticed that the power steering fluid reservoir had a good amount of pink foam in it. Is this normal? I figured I could flush out the fluid as I'm not sure when that had been done last but should I be concerned about another issue here?

Any recommendations or advise is appreciated.

Sounds pretty normal to me. Both of my 6.0's that I have owned have had some foaming in the reservoir. It would probably be helpful to us to have some pictures though...
