Not the first time my bone-dry sense of humour has got me in trouble - not to worry!

Those Arabians I tell ya, they're something else. When they're good they are the best horses under the sun. When they are bad boy are they bad! Not sure who would go mad first in a bad partnership - the horse or the rider!!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Interesting & amusing stories, folks! We learn so much from watching horses interact with each other!

My gelding Romeo is very dominent. He kicks, bites, squeals everything lol!
And at my dad's barn our normally sweet little PintoBean has become very very dominent and MEAN... I brought Bean down to my barn because we were taking Romeo to a show and we wanted a bud for Demi while Romeo was gone, and since Bean and Romeo had been together before I thought they would be ok... NOT
PintoBean chased around Demi and Romeo in a circle (Romeo was protecting his mare the best he could by staying in the middle of them) but PintoBean got mad and reared up on Romeo and landed on his neck/shoulder and brought Romeo down to his knees. Needless to say the second I could get that dumb horse out of there I did... I know it was partly my fault but I still have bad feelings for Bean lol. Romeo was ok but I guess in his old age he is getting less energetic...

Scotch is the alpha of my herd, but I think he would probably be too lazy to take on any of these alphas. I don't think I have any pictures, unfortunately.

Dat's ok, Charlig, thanks for posting anyway! We don't need pics for a mediocre (in this case, lazy?) alpha--we want dem heavy hitters!
