I've always called Courage a "flamboyant" horse.
By which I mean he is gay.
Here's a video of him and his gay roommate. Note that I posted it over a year and a half ago. Oh and before I drop it in here, let me warn you that more than one person who's seen it has shouted YOU CAN'T UNSEE THAT whether they like horses or not, so watch at your own risk.
Ahem. If you skipped the full video experience, I'm not judging you.
All that to say, it doesn't surprise me at all when we spend entire rides gawking at the curvy backsides of other geldings. I swear this is what Courage likes best about dressage--he's seen skinny thoroughbreds naked his whole life. He's ready for some CURVES.
|mmmmm half spanish!|
|could barely pull him off this one. can i get a BADONKADONK?|
Courage promptly reverted to baby-like training levels. Seriously. Could barely steer. Couldn't make corners. Would just sort of collapse in a heap when asked for downward transitions.
I mean. The good news is that he felt sound (FINALLY).
|yeah hind polos cuz i didn't wanna die|
