Horseplay and head swinging….

My deck overlooks the gelding field in Va so I’ve spent hours watching the horses play.  I noticed they like to play a game that involves a lot of head swinging and the first one to move their feet losses.  It’s horseplay but they are in fact testing their place in the herd.

So if your horse swings his head around you, he may be testing his place in your herd.  Don’t take it personally, just keep your feet planted and use your lead rope to move him back.

It’s kind of like that with people…

Take some Advice from a Dumb Blonde, sometimes those closest to us try to test our boundaries, don’t take it personally just stand your ground!
