But today, in the excitement of the snow, I think he wanted to play with me? He was really crazy running and bucking around, they would start following me throwing his head and kicking up his front feet some, not enough to be a rear but deffinately trying to reach up with his front hooves. I wasnt doing anything out of the normal, usually I will stand in the pasture and watch him play or have the whip out or flag my arms and he likes to run around more and such. Be I actually had to like turn around and nearly run away, because he wouldnt back away, I even flagged my arms to get him to go another direction and he just kept like prancing behind me flipping his head around and like jumping around. I had to make an escape out of the pen, because like I said its snowy and I can't exactly get out of the way as quickly or easily. He just really was way to close, one time he really did get pretty high in the air rearing up. Probably within like 4 feet of me, maybe 5. I went back in the pen when he was done being a nut case, or so I thought, and then he started running around playing crazy again and would run towards me and start kicking up his front feet again. That time I stood behind a tree, until he ran off playing then I came out and stayed out. He didnt look mad, or scared. His eyes were still soft and all black, so I don't exactly think he was like trying to attack me or something, but that's what im wondering, is he just excited and wanting to play or is he being an jerk?.... what is your opinion?
Also, we have one other horse but she's only been here a couple months, so usually its just him and I, and they other horse is never in the same pen as him. And I usually try to do alot of ground play with him, I had a serious injury in august and havent got on him since then (he needs a refresher course on how to behave with a rider)
