Elaine over at Pear Tree Log contemplated about whether horses play and I thought I would share times I caught them in the act.
Then at my barn:
Many years ago I had a quarter horse who had a high play factor. A sheet of the newspaper had blown into the pasture and we watched him pick up the paper, shake it around a bit then let it go. He would buck over the paper and when he stopped would pick it up again and repeat the same actions. On a different day he did the same with a small wicker basket. There’s no telling what he did when we weren’t watching.
