The unspoiled world of senior cobs, David and Master Dibble

Location: United Kingdom

Wednesday, November 22, 2006


Since the weather was forecast to be rainy and both Dads were due to go out to lunch, Dibby and I were given the day off. We went out to graze at about 8.30 and came in by 4.00. It had rained on and off during the day and our rugs were soaked.

Dad noticed a small overreach on my near hind leg and was told I had been racing around and bucking - showing off to the mares recently installed in the adjacent field. Despite my invitation Dibby and Cricket didn't join in with me and - being senior cobs - just carried on eating. By the time I came in I was quiet and subdued. It's tiring showing off to the ladies, even for a cob in his prime.
