    Default Funny funny filly with a plume tail

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDuLlpNy-v0

    This is my Dutch filly by Ikoon.

    When she gets excited, she puts her tail up over her back like a feather plume on a fancy lady's hat in the 19th century.

    Thanks.

    She is a WOW filly.

    She is bred to be a big time jumper but with her movement, she could be a big time dressage horse.

    I hope she outgrows her tail affectation.

    Meanwhile she is a hoot to watch.

    If she doesn't outgrow the habit it will sure help everyone remember her when she shows over the big jumps!

    We have a 16'3" 3YO gelding that does this constantly. He also does it in the in-hand classes. It is definitely an attention getter.

    My coming-three paint filly does it, too, when she's goofing around, like the filly in the video.

    She doesn't usually do it while working though, as in the round pen or lunge line, unless she is feeling silly.

    one of the fillies from my work did the SAME thing. When she was still in the following stage and we weren't leading her with mom she would wait for mom to get ahead and then WHIZ by with her tail just like that. It was very entertaining!

    I galloped a filly at the track, Pearl City, who everyday of her life did this as soon as you set off for a jog. She was rather cool!

    That is too funny! I love it when they do that. Makes me laugh! I have a pony filly here on the place who does it all the time when she shows in hand. Great under saddle, but when she is in hand, there goes the tail!

    Cute filly! I have an 11yo appy mare that does that when she's playing, but it's not nearly as dramatic since she doesn't have enough tail hair to make it arch nicely. Reminds me of arabs.

    No but here is the big boy in the pics he is either just going in or out of his plume tail. ......since he is an Indoctro/Voltaire we hope he gets out of it but so far no such luck. He will look awful silly as big as he is going over jumps with a plume tail. When he arrived from Holland his tail was chewed off to the bone. I guess he didn't have enough of weight to hold it down.

    Are you sure that she is not a Papillion dog?? She favors my happy pappy

    We had a gelding that had a talented tail. Only horse that I ever saw that could wring the entire tail over the middle of his back to swat flies.

    She is adorable.

    We have a colt that does that whenever he's inspired. I think it's adorable, but at the breed show I was told it's a sign of tension. That really surprised me, as he's really laid back and I would never have thought of him as tense. I just thought he was overly pleased with himself and his life in general. He started that as a newborn and still flags whenever he gets the urge. I hope he outgrows it, as he's going to be very very tall and will look silly if he keeps that up. His other favorite habit is racing around with a large red jolly ball in his mouth.

    I don't know how to insert a link, but the address for his picture follows:

    I just took pictures of a grand prix andalusion stallion who does this at the piaffe and while doing tempi changes. Its really funny because he has this huge plume going over the rider's head. It is really quite artistic photographically

    You guys sure there's not a rouge Arabian stallion jumping fences in your area .

    My little girl has Ramiro on both her mom's and dad's sides. Mom is a Ramiro granddaughter. So obviously he goes back to Ramzes. Those Arabian genes are STRONG.

    There is some Trakehner in the pedigree way back so again there will be more Arabian coming in.

    But both mom and dad are Dutch with heavy doses of Gelder.

    Oddly, the filly has a teeny head. And is quite refined in spite of her pedigree.
