I was talking to a friend of mine last night and during our conversation I had a rather strange and unusual thought. There is a large group of us bloggers and she has planned on us all getting together, may be happening around the spring of 2011 if we can all pull it off...
Anyways we were talking about a person who is continually playing a submissive and passive role in everything in life. This person had turned to the group for support of some kind, not sure exactly what yet myself, but support. And that's when it struck me.
For the most part this group is comprised of women. Strong willed, hard headed women. We don't take crap off our horses who out weigh and by far out muscle us, some are even taller than we are. (I know Tess was and now Boo Boo is in this category.) If we compared ourselves to the herd it would be a herd of alpha mares. Alpha mares don't often get along, let alone let anyone else slip by in life on anything that holds their interest.
So I was thinking, what other traits do we each have, as compared to our horses? I know I am not exactly conformationally correct or a halter prospect, being offset at the knees and having an undershot jaw... I am also not exactly speedy as far as running so I would NEVER make it at the track and my knees ached this morning so I may be in need of injections. Better call the vet!
But I am an easy keeper, low maintenance and like to work. My nails, or rather hooves are pretty strong, don't often chip too easily, don't require sanding or polishing and I lack feathering. lol! With the twins having red hair and our older daughter being a bit darker haired, if I were breeding for color- what are my odds? Would my 'owner' need Regumate to deal with mood swings? Am I mare-ish?
Let's hear it. This could be fun. If you were a horse for sale, how might the ad read?
