Had a drink after work tonight so was late home, rushed over to see Rafi who was touchingly pleased to see me and cantered over to me. Had a cuddle in the paddock then some other horses passed by which made him a bit excited and after a while he started playing with me - at first it just involved running, I'd run a bit and he'd run from one end of the paddock to the other, tail and head up. Then it went up a level and he started bucking and kicking and coming quite close, so I chickened out and went to the other side of the fence. He was still trying to play though - I got my phone out and videod him. Wish I had been brave enough to stay and play but I thought I'd very possibly get a kick, although I'm sure he wouldn't purposely set out to hurt me or anyone else, I'm not sure how aware he is when he gets excited.

What do you think, would you have stayed and played or got the heck out of there like I did?

He is absolutely stunning though. I'm a particular fan of his tail :smile:

Erm .... has anyone ever told you, you're WEIRD! LOL!

Maybe that's an idea for a new thread - what random body parts of your horse do you have a crush on?!

Glad I did the right thing getting on the other side of the fence - for all I know in my inexperienced little brain, there are people who get right in there and play with their horses, knowing they will keep a safe distance and not kick them. However, I'm not one of them!

I'm glad you were out of there. Even little, delicate Arab hooves can do a lot of damage in the wrong place!

He is stunning. I'm just going to start that thread about random bits of the horse, btw

Better safe than sorry! I too would have played safe! I used to enjoy a game of tig with Storm when she was in the front field with Joe (nice and flat for both of us, don't do hills!!!!). We used to play at lunch times, Joe used to just ignore us both!
