When I Grow Up...


A few weeks ago some good friends of mine asked me to take on one of their horses because they'd been transferred out of the country and couldn't take him with them. Andalus is an 11 year old gelding who has won quite a few FEI endurance races here. I'd admired him from afar for years and was delighted to take him into our herd. Introducing a horse to a herd of horses is not done casually. He'd spent a few weeks in a separate paddock adjoining the two year olds and getting to know them over the fence. Today we put them together and the youngsters thought that Andalus was simply too cool. This is one of the two year olds peeking under his role model's neck over a mouthful of hay.

I wondered about that. Thank you for teaching us a little about horse herd etiquette.
