Yukontanya, that is a riot! I've never seen a horse eat while laying down.
Have ridden with many Standardbreds and have been very impressed with their "seen that , done that" attitude. Very sensible and steady horses. Have met only one mare that is the walking poster horse for "mareish". She is the horse from hell, though she is steady for her rider, do not get near her. Sqealing and ready to kick at other horses. But , she has been the only exception to the Standardbreds I've met, and in her case, don't think it's a breed issue, more a very hormonal mare issue. LOL!
Oh yes, I remember one particular ride where this mare, named Promise, decided that my friends gelding was to her likeing. She went into heat on the spot. Would scream everytime another horse went near DannyBoy. Got to the point her rider , in a very authorative voice yelled, "Stand down Promise". Thought I'd wet myself from laughing. It was just too **** funny.
Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".
