silly question for you guys!

This is probably a silly question ...

My friend Nikki and I used to try and imagine what different horses would be like as people. So, if your horse was a person (lol) what would he/she be like??

I think my mare Jubilee would be like a mom in her thirties. Calm, gentle, caring and motherly, with moments of temper. Lol. But then again, she loves those geldings, so maybe she's just a teenage flirt!

I think Vida would be a lot like me. It could be just my personality being projected on her by me. Just a middle aged laid back, tough ol gal who doesnt follow the herd. Doesn't mind being alone and loves being outside.

A good horse can never be a bad colour...

I love doing this!
The stallion I used to lease sticks out in my mind. He would be the short, squat "Arnold Shwarzeneggar" (sp?!) on the street. You know, the short guy (he was 16.1hh, but acted much bigger) that was all muscles... but a teddy bear inside.
Maia.. I haven't figured her out just yet. I think she'd be a pretty blonde or redhead that flirts with every single guy out there.

My black gelding would be the popular heart breaker. Get all the girls he wants and act like a complete spoiled brat, throwing the random temper tantrum when he doesn't get what he wants. A group leader.

My mare the tall, innocent girl. The one boys want. She would be very laid back but knows what she wants.

You guys ever hear of the book called "Is your horse a rock star?". It's exactly about that. Looks at horse psychology and what kind of human being your horse would be. Great book!

Just looked up the website and took the test! Jubilee is a GODDESS! Lol.

To me, Dumas would be teh stately older gentleman that doesn't get involved the all the fuss. I could totally see him dith glasses and grey hair tying his own files for fishing and not wanting to get involved the the commotion.

Twister seems like he would be a lot like me. Silly, nosey, gentle but orniary. Not too concerned about any one thing but cares deeply about you and what you are feeling. Easy come, easy go type of guy. Probably wearing cut offs and a t-shirt. Lol


I went and did that quiz. It said that Dumas was a people pleaser and that Twister was a Godess. I never thought of them that way but it makes sence. 8)

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Lexi would have to be the popular girl. LOL! The prissy, confident, conceited (with a reason, hehe!) girl.

Ride more, worry less.

Cherokee would be a goofy kid. He is a fun loving, gentle soul.

Cocoa, she would have been an upstart when she was young. Maybe have had a mohawk and combat boots... rebelling against everything and everyone. But then as she matured and got older, she settled down & realized her family loved her... and so she returned that love and affection.

Toby - he is very laid back. Just likes to chill out with his friends and family. Likes to take life slow and easy. He also seems like he would have a good ear to listen to your problems and be there for you when you need a friend/


Cocoa - 32 yr old QH, Cherokee - 8 yr old TWH & Toby - 16 yr old QH
R.I.P. Cocoa 4/13/78 - 2/9/11

Flynn would be a lot like M2G's gelding.
The hotshot that is always flirting with the mares, then turns into a little devil. :)

This was a cute idea.
