What Kind Of Horse are You?

After reading a blogger refer to herself as a sturdy little quarter horse, I became aware that I am probably a neurotic OTTB.  That’s off-the track Throroughbred.  If you’ve never met a Thoroughbred (race horse), many of them tend to be a little hyper.  They stew a lot about the meaning of horse life.

So what kind of horse are you?

Draft horse:  Goes about business without sweating the small stuff.  Sturdy and can sleep standing up.  Can carry a heavy load without breaking down.  Needs grazing muzzle.

Pony:  Busy thinking, calculating and possibly talking.  Superior intellect and knows it. Small and sturdy without many problems but may need  grazing muzzle.  Not afraid to take on the big players.  May also work for NASA in space program.

Miniature horse:  no concept of own size and inflated sense of self.  Thinks world revolves around themselves.  This may or may not be true.  Napoleon was a miniature horse.

Appaloosa: always right and knows it.  However, will work for a boss who makes logical sense and pays fair.  Strong sense of self.

Quarter horse: sturdy, calm, minds own business and doesn’t worry about other horse’s problems.  Goes own way and likes to push cows around.  Doesn’t get involved in horse drama.

Arab:  Worries about other horse’s problems.  Worries about the wind.  Worries about rocks.  Worries about having a blue feed bucket.  Generally sensitive, caring and likes to have a job and be useful.  Learns fast.

American Saddlebred:  fancy stepper with a lot of show.  May be insecure behind the beautiful exterior, but no one can tell.

Mixed breed: any combination of these and any other characteristics.
