    So my Snail can rear O_o

    Yesterday my friend and I went to the barn to spend some time with my filly, the Snail. Her real name is Lux, but due to the fact she is the laziest creature on the planet and you practically need a cattle prod to get her to move, she has earned herself the nickname "Snail". In fact, she actually responds to it better than her real name. Anyway, after a very productive grooming session (clipped her face for the first time - she was great!), we took her to the back field so I could take some side shots of her to put in a conformation critique thread (see the critique section!!!). Afterwards, when I turned her back into her turnout with her pasturemate, Shania, they went nuts! Running around, spinning, the works. My friend and I sat there with our jaws on the ground. In the 9 months since I bought Snail, I've seen her canter maybe three times, and only for a few strides. Next thing I see, she's trying to get Shania to play with her. Shania is not interested. So Snail, becoming frustrated, rears STRAIGHT up in the air and holds it for a good three or four seconds before coming down. .

    I was floored. Luckily, I had my camera with me, so without further interruption, here's a side of Lux none of us have ever seen before!!!

    Wow. I LOVE that last photo. No offense to the other horsies, but if you crop them out and center just on her, it will be something I consider to be a perfect work of art. Pretty, pretty girl!
