Oh. That's right. Everyone. Good thing I'm a rebel and I don't care. =D

Yeap. My litle sister and I used to tie Brandi and Magic up and then grab a feed sack and sit indian style right behind them to brush out and raid their tails. I have walked under bellies, necks sat behind in blind spots and everything. I do not do this with an animal that does not trust me, I would not do it to Tom, he is too afraid of people still.

When I was around 2 or so I would sit under my little stud colts belly and play with my Barbies, have pictures to prove it. He would sit there and doze whle I did it...

Looks like Ricci really trusts you.

Yep, I say it's dangerous. I won't do it. You never know if even the dead-calmest horse is going to spook at something, and you're kind of in the way if the horse spooks forwards or back.

That is very true JDI, very true.

VB I don't have them on my comp or I would, they are old 35mm in the photo album at moms. Next time I go down I will get them for sure though.

I do it when I'm wrapping my horses legs and I don't want to stand up and walk around.Though, I wouldn't do it with anyone elses horse. Some people are just so uptight about it, they need to realize that you're the one taking the risk and they should mind their own business (unless of course your boarding then you should listen to the BO).

haha I must be a rebel too. I used to love sitting under Bella's belly. I don't do it much anymore cause I have no need to... With her even her spooks are lazy... she just flinches, then if it IS something that's dangerous, she waits until it gets close enough to kick lol Growing up people always though I was crazy, but she's my Bella... I trust her more than I trust most people. Although I don't think there's a horse I know other than Bella that I would do that with
