RC: Stallion behavior

Hi Lif
Love to hear what you were doing to your brother when he felt the need
to use his bat on you. I believe I might have mentioned that the
stallion was rearing in the air walking on two feet 50 feet towards the
mare he was to breed. He's lucky that all he got was a whiffle bat in
his chest. I thought that to be rather mild considering the
circumstances. He did turn out to be a good boy, though (just spoiled)
and actually was shown at Scottsdale last year by his amateur teenage
girl owner. I guess the whiffle bat didn't hurt his psyche too much (I
could have aimed it at the part of his anatomy that was provoking the
problem--- but I was kind).

I've learned that life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer it
gets to the end, the faster it goes. Smell the roses!
