    I see you get me. I'd probably venture to get another horse, someday, but I'm currently flying a lot. Did you ever get a new horse?

    (I had limited interaction with horses, bought one a few years back, but she died during a fungal outbreak in the feed. Haven't had the heart to get another.)

    I have met a few horses, they are lovely, and knew a domesitc one that would do the whops I tripped and dump her rider.

    Domesticated horses are a whole lot different. they are more tame (well Mares to a point I guess they do have attitudes). Wild Horses have behavioral changes and rely more on them. They definitely pay more attention to their surroundings. Especially as we walked up to them.

    @Pitya Ivyr you said "I just wanted to see... after training a domesticated horse what was the difference." So I was wondering if you did find any significant difference.

    Well all are wild... The kiger mustangs are more under control though and have usual round-ups. I dislike the conditions and wish them to remain wild however at this rate it comes down to euthanasia or Round-up, I would pick round-up to give them a chance at a home. A chance at life.

    @Jacqueline Hyde, Invader has a brand of autism, her spectrum somehow lets her deal with insects and snakes. Some of the things she 'catches' is impressive.

    The Steens is the only place with Wild Horses on the West side of the states. we also have the home of the last wild mustangs. Spanish Descent Kiger Mustangs have BLM herd management area out in the Steens. I just wanted to see... after training a domesticated horse what was the difference. I also in general am curious about wild horses. There are two types out in the Steens.

  • Chase Chase:
    They flatten out? That's interesting behavior.
    Quote Link
  • Invader Invader:
    They can also flatten out to ribbon flatness, making them harder to catch, and they will play dead on you too.

    I love garter snakes, and was lucky enough to catch a kirtlands snake, they look simular to a red belly, only they have black half moon marks on the underside.
