My three year old gelding likes to hang out with a very submissive older mare that boards with him. She is a notorious flirt when she is season (which seems to be every few weeks). I happen to be out in the field with them this morning and of course Baby Doll (the mare) is winking and being all squealy and in the boys' faces.
She and my gelding are being all cutesie together and grooming each other.
Well, I look away for a few minutes and when I look back, my gelding is nursing from her.
I watched for a minute or two, because, I figured he was about to be clocked in the face. Nope. They were both having a grand old time.
So, please tell me my gelding isn't a little perv and the mare isn't trying to rob the cradle (she is 24 years his senior. ).
Anyone else seen this? Oi, horses! What if the neighbors saw!
