This a thousand times over. I took Flirt out for a handwalk around the neighbourhood a few months ago. Being clydie x wb he's a BIG boy. Had 2 kids and their Mum appear out of nowhere, scare the ever loving crap out of Flirt. Once I settled him down they asked if they could pet him. I lowered his head so they could stroke his face, but told them to be very gentle and quiet because he's only 2. The mother proceeds to look at me with a look of complete disbelief and say "horse's aren't this big when they're babies!"
