Horse owners are mommies, too...

...If only because horses are so darn childlike, sometimes.

Case in point:

After I got done grooming Panama today, and we went back into the main pasture, all of the other horses were relaxing. I stopped and took a picture.

Panama stood right next to me while I took the photo, like he was supervising or something. But then, just as I got ready to take a picture of the mare lying down, he got tired of acting all grown up — not to mention probably a little jealous of the attention I was paying the others — and decided to put himself back into the spotlight.

So she got up, and he stood there looking all proud of himself.

It's amazing sometimes how much a horse and a two-year-old have in common...

What a stinker he is, picking on a napper! LOL Pokey would do that to Gilly!

Oh yes, Cuervo -- Panama's donkey friend -- used to do that too. I'm sure Panama got it from him. :o)

Actually, though, I've never seen pick on a napper before -- I think it was because he knew I was taking pictures of her and got jealous. He has SUCH a jealous streak about me! ;o)
