Horseplay

Jet and Montero are both pretty mild mannered. They don't really do well in a large herd situation as both of them fall pretty low on the pecking order, Montero to the point that if he has to fight for his food he just won't eat. Having just the two of them together in a big field seems to work for them. Jet is definitely more dominant of the two which is funny since he's kind of a sissy and Montero is about 5 inches taller and outweighs him by about 200 pounds. Jet really likes to play and one of his favorite things to do is pull tails. So he spends a lot of the day nipping Montero's butt and pulling on his tail. Which starts a play fest that includes much head snaking, running around and rearing up on Montero's part. It's really fun to watch as neither one of them hurts the other but they definitely enjoy it. Jet always starts it but Montero is a willing participant.

You can really tell how much fun they're having! Only our youngsters play that like - Arwen is way to serious for any play and Sahara is always preoccupied with keeping track of her herd! They should learn from your guys!
