    Default If your horse sung a theme song in its head...

    What would it be?

    Based on the personalities of our two boys.....

    Call Mack's name....he comes running. His theme song (I said) - "Danger Zone"...Ben says "Cat Scratch Fever."

    Call Awle's name...and he comes trotting over just trit-trotting and prancing. His theme song (I said) - "Coconut (Lime in a Coconut)"...Ben says "Dueling Banjos"

    The obvious answer for Mr. Tip would be, "It's A Long Way To Tipperary." I sing it to him all the time (oddly, he hasn't kicked me yet. Hmm.) I'm thinking maybe "Feeling Good," by Muse, which has a nice swing to it and also describes his usual mood. Oddly, I can see him trotting out to "Pride (In the Name of Love)" by U2.

    John's, without any doubt, was the theme from Phantom of the Opera. We even had a little freestyle planned out to "Masquerade" including one-tempis, his favorite thing. Every time I hear the soundtrack I think of him. Had he been gray, I would have called him Opera Ghost.

    I always joke about my moms reiner and sing "Were off to see the wizard!" when Im around him, cause he really needs to go get a brain and some courage.

    I am fairly convinced my goofy 6 yr old WB trots around whistling "Don't Worry, Be Happy".
    That is definitely his mantra.

    What a fun thread idea!

    Whenever I hear the party song at the beginning of La Traviata Act I: Introduzione: Coro: 'Dell'invito trascorsa e gia l'ora?', it reminds me of my Arab gelding, Gem. It's just so cheerful and lively of a tune.

    For little miss Valentine, aka the Princess, her theme song would probably have to be "I'm too Sexy". The boys love her (of course she has her favorite) and she truly thinks she's "all that"

    Yeah, that fits her perfectly!!!

    Woodrow's would definitely be "California Girls" Van Halen version because he thinks all mares love him and he loves all mares. What a goober.

    Tazz's themesong would be the a lullaby to lure me to sleep.

    In the cross-ties - she sleeps.

    Standing still for a few moments in the ring to watch others - she sleeps.

    Getting a bath - she sleeps.

    Do we see the pattern here?

    I'm pretty sure my goofy Iberian Warmblood sings to the tune "We're Off To See The Wizard" also. He definately needs courage and a brain.

    My Appaloosa, well, what song talks about being opinionated, not gonna do it, good ol' boy? That's him. He's opinionated, doesn't wanna work but will eventually do what you ask and yet, he's the same, sane horse that will stand for hours to be groomed, or go on trail rides, etc.

    I'm pretty sure my b*tchy, opinionated mare has "F*ck the Police" (and by "police" mean anyone telling her what to do ) running through her head at all times.

    I am going to have to go with the "I'm too sexy" one for my boy! I have only had him 3 weeks, but boy! He is such a primmadonna prissy boy...When he hears someone talking about him, especially if it's a compliment about his beautiful muscley neck, I swear he gracefully arches his neck so as to best show it off!

    Crackerjack: "I Just Can't Wait to be King"

    Insider: "I'm Too Sexy"

    Aaruba: "On the Road Again"

    Consolation: Beethovan's Fifth Symphony

    Ripple Effect: "Be Bop Baby"

    Hmm, will have to think about the others...

    My horse is simple, so he just mumbles nursery rhymes....

    I hate this one:
    For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
    For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
    For want of a horse the rider was lost.
    For want of a rider the battle was lost.
    For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
    And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

    And even though he isn't a dressage horse, sometimes I catch him reciting the dressage arena letters...
    All King Edward's Horses Call Me Beautiful Fool

    As if his education somehow excuses him for being a pretty idiot. Then he tries to dump me.

    Oh my gosh - I've been trying to come up with a song to sing riding cross country on my horse and I think this is it! He needs a brain, and I need courage I'll be singing it this Sat in our first event if all goes well! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    (I need a simple song since I can't remember much riding cross country, so maybe I need a brain too )

    Dobby would sing "Mud on the Tires" but Linny was more of like the disco version of Beethoven's Fifth- a serious piece of music done in a silly way. A mare I used to ride reminded me of the music you associate with the flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz, she was nuts.

    William, without a doubt, rocks out to "Bad Reputation" by Joan Jett. While his actual "theme song" might have to be "Porcelain" by Moby (from the Playing by Heart soundtrack), most of Joan Jett's stuff works for the big orange jerk.

    Isaac, on the other hand, appreciates some good ambient techno or, if he's feeling really coffee-shop, emo. But, he also keeps a journal and handmakes papers, so really, what else could be expected?
