@kiltsrhott : Those feathers are amazing!! How do you keep them so white?! :)
Thanks! Honestly, I don't do much beyond a weekly dry brushing. I just happen to have one of those horses that stays relatively clean. We also have fairly good mud management this year, with stone dust footing in their paddocks, and we only let the horses out on pasture when the footing is solid. If we didn't do it this way my Urs would be brown instead of black and white, and our pastures would be mud pits with no grass. I'm just glad Ursula doesn't have a white tail because she goes to the bathroom in it! D:
And his most common reaction to "scary" things. He'll really arch his neck and look really pretty, blow a few times while he's walking up to it and then, when he decides that it probably won't eat him, he says "Oh, just let me stand on it or walk over/through/into it. That'll show it for trying to scare me." Goober LOL
And a little short video from his back. Sorry that I have the camera turned sideways, but that's basically the only way to get a good view of his neck. LOL. Also, sorry for the wind noise, but this is the first actual non-windy day we've had.
Ok I have to join in, a cpl weeks ago I just got my first ever half draft. He is a 14 yr, 17hh, 1750lb Perch/QH. I am in love! He looks more like a Friesian then anything but he is a super fast learner, can be a little stud-ish and spooky but I love his personality!
This is my grade mare Sparrow, a QH-Perch cross. She's actually more QH with her dam being full QH and her sire being QH-Perch cross himself, but she's definitely still got those draft genetics. Definitely very sweet and docile disposition, but she's got that huge shoulder and roundness that makes saddle slipping a recurring issue we have. :P
