Fun in the Field.

From Kestrel: We are discing a field preparatory to planting it (even though it does not look like a promising year for rain) and one of the horses, Tito, decided to “help”. You can see he’s not scared of tractors, but it’s still fun to run in the field anyway. At least until it’s time to go back to sleep.

Tito’s a beauty, click for full size!

    That last one is very much “of course you may take a close up, this is my best side”

    @jazzlet: lol yeah, he’s pretty fantastic -- just ask him, he’ll tell you all about it.

    Sorry that one flipped on its side! I blame my phone. Stupid thing.

    Tito certainly looks very proud of himself. “Lookit all the work I did!” Not bad, Tito, not bad.
    He’s got beautiful proportions. What is he?

    I thought that he’s a bit meaty on the hind quarters and skinny on the front.
    But I haven’t encountered an actual meatspace horse in … a bit of time

    @rq: Tito is a Paso Fino stallion. Their brains fire a little differently from other horses, so instead of a 2-beat trot, they produce a 4-beat gait that is very comfortable for the rider. They are of Spanish origin so look a lot like other Spanish breeds such as Anadalusians.

    @Giliell: yes, we “needed” all that help! We would have made it a complete hash without Tito there to supervise. :-D
