EQUINE WAR...............???????

Forget what I said about Daisy & Quilla being very gentle & easy going. This afternoon John was doing round-up & I was in the feedroom. Quilla had gone in their pen & John brought Daisy in, shut the gate & headed out to find some of the others. I just happened to look out & Daisy, dear sweet Daisy, has penned her ears was shaking her head & took off after Quilla. The poor guy was just standing there. He turned his butt & kicked a leg out in her direction. They went to opposite corners of the pen & although they both had fly masks on, I got the idea they were staring at each other. Quilla started to walk to the middle of the pen, & she took off after him again. This time I went out & yelled at her, & went back in the feed room. Looked out & she was standing in the middle of the pen looking at the ground. All of a sudden she picked up a rock about the size of an small egg, shook her head up & down & threw it about 3 or 4 feet. I yelled at her & then had to laugh, sure wish I'd had a camera handy. I don't know if she was trying to throw a rock at him or what. But that's what it looked like. I stayed outside for awhile, & they continued to squabble she pinning ears & him turning his butt. Everytime they acted ugly, I yelled at whichever one was doing it. By the time supper was served, they were back to normal. I have no idea what was going on, but it sure was funny to watch. Made me think of an old married couple picking at each other.

I don't think Quilla thought it was hilarious. They had another tiff yesterday for some reason. But it didn't lead to "rock" throwing this time........... It's raining even as I type, hope it continues...!!!
