Re: Horrible Names For Horses

Not to mention that in the particular case of Arab stallions, the "handling" management that goes into prepping them to show at liberty (IMO) pretty much creates a scenario where the horse ends up having little respect for halter or handler. :roll:

Fuji TV put up an Almond-Eye-centric replay and I can't help but wonder if only Christophe Lemaire had taken her outside... b/c once she isn't behind a wall of horses, or pinched between them trying to move up?

I was wondering if it was partly due to the tail string on the cooler, it's all bunched in his tail too. Glad he's not lame!
