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!
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!

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.
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 .
