Part of owning a horse, well any animal, is getting to know their quirks and habits. Hola has one quirk. He's a weaver. So is Toby to a much lesser degree. Hola will throw his head around and weave back and forth about as often as Jag used to crib. It certainly is not a problem to deal with. As soon as he has to work or is on the end of a lead, he stops weaving. And he only weaves in anticipation of things such as his feed or when he's feeling good. It's his way of "self expresssion."
So I couldn't resist. I had to make a short video of Hola doing his "Gumby Dance."
Notice how easily he swaps his leads and look at that floaty trot!
I'll be back at the end of the week.
