Yuck! I'm glad you weren't hurt...by your mare or by the toxic gas from Strawberry ;) LOL
Mine isn't a "mare" per-say, it was a molly mule filly (6 months old ish), but she was a crazy little thing! She would head butt and push her mama if she wasn't trotting fast enough or standing the right way to nurse, and constantly leapt on top of her mom/did karate kicks at her. The funniest two things that happened with her though were:
a) When she met a full sized gelding for the first time. She acted terrified of him when he came up (he's a gentle old soul) and she started mouthing at him, which is horse language for "don't hurt me, I'm not a threat! I'm a baby!" as she edged towards him, but the second he got close enough to sniff, she spun around and double barrel kicked him right in the nose and pranced off looking smug!
b) this one was when she was only about two months old. I was tacking up her dam to be driven and had set my Sprite can down on the ground while I did it. That little filly came right up, grabbed it in her teeth, and proceeded to chug the entire thing down in one gulp, then tossed the can away!
