How do you call 4-beat gait there? I know several languages, but not yours. :)

Grass hay in fact can be interpreted differently. Like around here "grass hay" means just a mix of different grasses (kinda pasture grass). However you can also buy timothy or orchard hay, which technically is also "grass", but when you buy/sell it you specify. "Grass hay" usually cheaper than "orchard hay" or "timothy hay" (I feed timothy BTW). And of course there is alfalfa and alfalfa/grass (grass/timothy/orchard) mix hay.

4-beat gait is hitri dir, which could be translate to fast dir... Dir means running very quickly, dirka is race.
Some people also say short gallop (canter) and fast gallop (gallop).


There is orchard hay too? We have an orchard at home, but grass isn't edible, since pesticids and that stuffs are used on trees.

It's RAINING!

Interesting... I wonder what other language yours is close to.

Yes, orchard & timothy are most popular in my area (I know there are others like brome, bermuda (towards south), etc.). I did try orchard hay once and for whatever reason it did smell funny to me (and the horse's poop smelt HORRIBLE unlike when I feed them timothy ).

Slovene is a slavic (slavonic) language, in that group are also Russian, Ukrainian, Czech, Slovak, Polish... The most similiar to Slovenian are Croatian and Serbian.

LMAO means "laughing my *** off."

OP stands for "original poster."
