Play date

Weekends are often play dates for the horses. I try and turn Indy and Redman out together in the ring so they can burn off some steam. They love it, well Redman loves it for sure. Indy I often wonder if he gets tired of amusing his little brother.

Redman does a lot of what we call "fly bys". He trots and canters past Indy often giving him a poke to try and get him to play. Who say's 1/4 horses can't be hunters? Redman's lovely long and low trot shows in this photo.

Eventually this happens, and they both burn about for a while. Indy is a short burst kinda guy, he can dig in a let er rip but it doesn't last long. After a few good laps of the ring he just prances about with his tail up like an arab!

Gorgeous boys - both of them! I have one dog that does that same type of instigating behavior.... we call him "Pokey Nose" because he pokes at Poncho over and over again, trying to get him to play.
