Well, Mystery is my fairly new mare that was given to me because she was starving. She's really making progress, and we have noticed something about her, and I wanted some other opinions. We were told she had been an 12 year old boys roping horse. We have noticed that anytime a child approaches her, she gets a real happy look about her (please don't laugh at me),she really does. She also drops her head immediately so they can pet her. Does anyone else take this tomean that she probably was a childs horse. Our farrier/vet is convinced that she was once a show horse, just by her actions.
As far as my being able to tell when horses look "happy and content", I can also tell just by looking, when one looks depressed.
