So my 5 y/o TB does this notsosmart gaze anytime he hears or sees something that is a little out of place. I don't know if he's a redHEAD or a redNECK because 1/2 the time his mouth is open, too, and it just looks like he's thinking "Huuuhhh?". Sometimes he just gazes up at nothing! I tried to capture it on my cell today while handwalking/grazing. (He's on day 2 of 30 days stall rest, coming back from hock surgery last Tuesday.) It's funnier in person but thought I'd share it anyway.
Perhaps he is struck by sudden thoughts, and has to pause to consider them, while stretching to let the blood rush to his brain. Like, "Why is the sky blue?" "What holds up those white fluffy things up there?" "Will I ever go to Rolex?" "Why do I have to have my mane pulled when I'm on stall rest?"
"Why do I have to have my mane pulled when I'm on stall rest?"
Haha - that made ME laugh out loud! Wait until I start practicing braiding while he's on stall rest. I just bought some waxed thread and thought I'd play around while we can't work! He'll be really confused then!
