Acquired: Bred horse myself
Virginia, United States
Posted Aug 01, 2012
THIS is a magnificently regal beast. His name is Milkface, a truly
striking horse, who looks as though he dunked his head into a trough
of milk! He is a fairly new horse in the reining industry, born only
in 2002, but this APHA/AQHA stud is a spectacular equine.
Milkface is what we call a “Lead” horse. I would not say that he is
“dominant” because he is a very gentle guy. He meanders about
the fields, taking in the scenery and nibbling on grass. But, when
he decides to amble into another pasture, the others just naturally
follow, Maybe it's that huge WHITE face that guides the others like
a Lighthouse in the Storm. But Milkface is definitely the Alpha Male
of his group.
Just be careful when blanketing him at night in the winter. He loves his
one, special Blue Blanket, for some reason. Strangely enough, he
hates the color RED. So don't even TRY to get near him while you are
wearing a Red Winter Coat yourself. He whinnies long and loud, and
will do whatever he can get get away from you. He may even rear up!
You can't fault the guy for knowing what he likes, now can you?
