The Ugly: Speaks for Herself

All Screwed Up

How can one little horse have so much personality? 

Meet Sunny, a coming two year old (in June) who is a gaited horse (can’t remember what breed… Tennessee Walker?), a twin, born to an adopted PMU mare, perlino coloring, short, and full of spunk and smarts.  She was cracking me up during the whole clinic this past weekend.  For such a young little thing she was pretty well behaved, thougha  little pushy.  She had a very cute personality and was super curious about everything she came in contact with. 

The clinician was Josh Foster, “The Equine’s Partner.”  He began the clinic by taking bridles and halters off and letting the herd loose together in the arena.  There were people stationed around the arena to keep the herd going so that there wasn’t any big fights, like there might be if left alone to sniff noses.  The horses roared around the arena bucking, kicking and playing.  They had a blast and were able to get their kinks out. 

Sunny was moving out with one other filly, a little line backed dun who thought she was the coolest thing since sliced bread.  Sunny did not want to participate in all the comraderie going on and when the herd decided to come in too close to the two fillies, Sunny grabbed a bag from off the rail and decided to use it to her defense.

She chased and ran with that thing swinging in her mouth and scared the bee-geebies out of some of the horses.

Come here little boy, want some candy?

She obviously really caught my attention, with such a personality and her own beauty, this little gal is going to make a really fun horse.  I’m glad she’s here local so I get to watch her grow up.

  1. What a little sassy frass! Too funny!

  2. You said she is a twin, that would account for her being pushy. It’s very interesting to see how the equine behavior is affected by being a twin. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching mine grow up and seeing those differences first hand.

  3. I love this little mare, what a crack up to watch and such personality. I made Steve come to my computer to see the pics. It must have been very entertaining to watch her.
