If your horse were a person...

If your horse were a person, what kind of person would he/she be?

One of my mares is like a perpetual teenage girl. You know, the kind that if you come around a corner and say something she screams and drops her sandwich on the couch? She is like the teen who can be half asleep for most of the day, then hyper/excited at all the wrong times. Just like a girl, she relies heavily on peer pressure to know what to do. "Are you guys scared of that or what? If everyone wants to run, I do too!" Like a teen, she will stay out of trouble when with a group of mature individuals, but get her in the wrong crowd and you better keep an eye on her. Whatever you do, don't let her go out with another silly teen or you will be sorry. She's also boy-crazy and bats her eyes at every gelding she sees.

My other mare is like a new police officer just out of training. When she's getting ready to go to work she's so excited she can hardly stand it and needs to have a mature partner help her calm down and get her head into the work for the day. As long as she's with a reliable partner she does an excellent job in most situations. However, when it comes to a big sting or riot situation she's liable to lose her head and over react. Her partner always has to keep an eye on her to make sure her guns don't go off, and sometimes she has to be talked down.

Ha! My 5 year old gelding is a 2-3 year old. He has to "taste" everything. Even the cat will walk up to me with a big wet spot on her back where Sundance "tasted" her. He also likes his hugs

The outside of a horse is good for the inside of man.........unknown

He would be a silly but responsible and smart 6 year old. Willing to listen and learn but likes to mess around and make people laugh while doing it. And he can get crabby and scared, as well as hyper, but for the most part a calm, giggly little boy.

Mine would be a replica of my 5 year old daughter in a little boy form. That's too hard to elaborate upon, so we'll leave it at that. Lol.

My Thoroughbred would be an eccentric, self-absorbed British aristocrat with a superiority complex.

And I imagine Norman would probably be an adult that never wanted to grow up. He'd be like a huge body builder who looks intimidating, but is really a big teddy bear. lol

Right now at this moment I'd have:

The mean girl. The girl in high school who is the most popular, picks on everyone else and adores attention (both positive and negative). She gets good grades and listens to her parents but sneaks out at night and is known to destroy private property for the fun of it.

Her tag along friend. Who isn't as popular but pretends she is. She isn't really one for attention but will deal with it because that is what the popular one does. She'll do whatever the one above does just to impress her.

The geeky tag along little brother. He's so laid back that he's amazed he's part of the gang. He tries not to get into trouble and won't tag along if he thinks he will. Often gives you that look like "it was them".

The grandma who is intimidated by the goofy teens behavior. She'd rather stay in her house all day than put up with them all. She's been around the block and is set in her life. Whatever comes her way she'll take it with a yawn.

A girl that wants to be a part of everything and doesn't understand why she can't be. Despite her disability she isn't sure why she can't be part of everything. Would probably be more than willing to join in on the fun if she could. Hates being stuck in her room all day!

100% Anti-Slaughter and PROUD of it!

Right now, Abby's human form would be that really pretty girl in high school who looks really sweet and nice from a distance, then you go to talk to her and turns out she's the meanest girl in school.

I can imagine the things she would say if she could talk. Particularly when the vet is out: "Oh my gosh. You are so embarassing." I've gotten that look several times.

She stops being a jerk after a smack and a firm, "No!". Then she's pretty good.

The horse I ride is a snotty movie actress, she is demanding, a flirt, acts like she doesn't care about anything, but herself. She's "too good" to listen to anyone. And needs attention on her at all times. She's also from Holland so if she could talk, I picture her having an accent.

My mare is a prima donna. The lady (who really is just average) thinks she's too important to drink tap water or ride the bus
