We have a very open 'trail' around here. Paved with a bit of gravel/grass/dirt on the side for the horses. Lots of bikers, joggers, walkers, roller bladers.
There are a lot of idiot bikers. They think it's funny to reach out and touch your horse as they go by. One did that with Solon once and goosed him. He bolted. Was scared half to Hades. Got him calmed down then turned and stood in the middle of the paved trail just staring at the biker.
Solon had his head raised, ears forward, nostrils flared, gave out a huge snort. He looked way taller than his 18 hands. Jet black horse looking at a puny biker, I was hoping he was pooping his pants. He turned away pretty quickly.
It wasn't the first time that's happened. One of these times, Solon is going to get tired of it and plant a size 8 hoof right upside the bike and destroy it. Hopefully he misses a leg.
I do not like the bikers on our trail. No sense at all.
