Horse Personalities...

Cahlibur and Belle

After reading Jan's post: New study finds that dogs feel jealousy on her the Poodle (and dog) Blog, I got to thinking about the personalities of our horses! Her comment on this blog continued the thought:

"Beautiful description. This could turn me into a horse lover. They really do have their own distinct personalities, don't they?" comment by Jan on MnC post "Training Oakley".

My answering comment is the starting point for this post. I added pictures and a little more about each horse to punctuate their personalities:

"Yes they do! Cahlibur is our Gentle Ben, he quietly tells you when he is hungry (which is all the time!),

Coal is our shy guy, it takes him a little bit to come up to anyone but Tony, but when he does, he welcomes you wholeheartedly into the "herd" and he loves to play in water.

Belle is our escape artist, she checks the locks behind us all the time! She comes up behind me, to check over my shoulder, too!

Oakley is our scaredy cat and is a love bug. She loves to tuck her nose into my shoulder and under my chin!

Clancey is...well Clancey is almost two and he is our little clown, with his mouthing and lipping everything he can get his mouth on!" comment by Janey Loree on MnC post "Training Oakley".
TnT are up on the San Juan Ranch. They move Clancey into Coal and Cahlibur’s pens while they are at the ranch, which makes feeding that much easier. It looks like TnT will be going every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday until the end of the year (except for Holiday weeks). They worked all day yesterday on horseback up until after dark!

It was fun to hear about the personalities. Love the angle of Belle's photo. I hope your sons get to fulfill their dreams.

Very well written and illustrated. Humans can be so arrogant and blind when they think animals don't have rich emotional lives.

I guess the real question is: Can the behavior of animals be influenced or have a direct link to their alledged personalities? Your pictures seem to prove this. As for "arrogant and blind" human beings that don't believe this--they're just not animal lovers.

I want to thank ya'll for your comments! Sheila, I had fun writing about our horses personalities! And agree with Jan and JR that human beings can be arrogant and blind concerning animals and feel that they probably never got the opportunity or took the time to love an animal of their own!

I really enjoyed this post. I've always loved horses, but have only had limited exposure. It's good to know what I thought about them being personable was not just my imagination.

I really appreciate your support of the carnival.

Thank you for stopping by! I will let everyone know that the Carnival is in town!!!

I have always loved horses and always thought like most animals they have their own personalities. Nice post Janey and lovely photos.

What a wonderful post and lovely pictures. I've never had much chance to get up close and personal with horses so this was all a revalation to me.
