fun

run around a bit
knock cones down
knock barrels down
walk over to have your head rubbed

run away again!

I too have been noticing the "color scheme" of this horse, and upon closer look I see it appears to be shaved on the lower half of its body. I've never seen anyone do that to their horse before. Is it something commonly done in Scotland?

I also notice the large patch on each side where something (the harness?) has been rubbing. Have they fixed the fit of it or is it still rubbing?

I love the way all animals like to play games. :o) I have some pictures from a few years back (currently in my truck to show to a friend) and one of them is 2 horses play fighting. I'll scan and post it soon as these photos made me think of that.

Granny and Grannyfiddler, Robbie is called a 'Bay' colour, his winter coat is clipped which is why he looks multi coloured, see this link,

it is something that is quite commmon here with them growing winter coats,
Alice, the rub is from his stable rug, it was changed recently but I dont see any improvement. he also has a bald bit on the top of his tail and on his wither from where he had ringworm as a foal.
