Since Tango donned his Canadian Dressage Horses for Obama sign, there has been a 34% increase in flights over his field. Some planes are flying perilously low. One plane covered with logos for Alaska, Saks, and Macy’s nearly crashed when the pilot grazed the top of the old cottonwood tree in the middle of the field.
A day later, a two new horses arrived at the farm across the street. One was a grey gelding who appears to be in his late twenties. The other is a bay filly. They are both sporting GOP blankets. They have become something of an attraction in the neighborhood due to their erratic and unexpected behaviour. The older horse seems uncertain what to do with his time. First he runs barrels, then jogs around as though in a Western Pleasure class. He has also been seen jumping large rocks in his field without any provocation at all. Much of the time though, he seems happy simply to nap.
The filly is even more dynamic. She’s been picking fights with every horse within calling distance. She’s even biting and kicking at the gelding and startling him out of his naps. She’s cute, though. That much is undeniable.
I saw a local trainer watching the pair. He speculated that the filly’s not sound. He seems to think that if anyone put her into a serious work program, she’d be lame in a month.
Meanwhile, Tango is still getting most of the overhead attention and according to my sources, dressage horses all over the Cedar area have been seen in Obama blankets.
