But - a branch is much more natural.

OMgoodness, this thread is NUTS!!!! I'm sitting here ROTFL, this is hilarious!

Oh, and get this....Clinton Anderson once kicked a horse in the barrel while he was working on backing her slowly from a trailer - she fishtailed and almost squashed him against the inside of the trailer! - and because he couldn't hit her with his stick at close-range, he picked up his foot and kicked her!
And I quote CA himself, "Now THAT is natural horsemanship, mates...nothin' more natural than your FOOT!"

Why, thank you, sir! I think I picked a good color for Ricci. Gracie's color is pink though. Hot pink. Pink and zebra stripes if I could find it, because it's not a "girly" pink, but a "punk" pink. It fits Gracie perfectly. =]

You are absolutely right, it has to be the right color on the right horse. And a chestnut/sorrel should never wear red. Ever. It hurts my eyes whenever I see it. Haha.
