Knee nipper

My late heart horse, Oporto, adored ponies and mini horses. He had been a very intense stallion and was gelded late. But when he was turned out with the little guys, he turned into a model “mother mare,” being very solicitous and tolerating all kinds of abuse from them while displaying extreme restraint when teaching them manners. It was particularly entertaining watching him teach this brash little mini to be a well-mannered gelding, even while he himself was still adjusting. The mini regularly sank his teeth into Oporto, who would carefully extricate himself with a very gentle rebuff. Here the little devil is about to latch on to the back of Oporto’s knee in an effort to get a little action happening…
