Sparring by Goodbye-kitty975 Sparring by Goodbye-kitty975
Notorious and Memories sparring out in the paddock. you've all probably seen photos of horses play fighting by rearing, but this sort of wrestling is a lot more interesting to watch. they try to bite each other's sides and forelegs, and defend their own by dropping to their knees, until they are both on the ground. very fun to observe. and no, they're not hurting each other.

You're right, this behaviour is great to watch. And photograph! My dog and his dog-friend also do this, always reminds me of horses. :) Great shot.

I've always heard of this but never seen it, ...wow. It is a smart little tactic, and yes interesting to watch. Very nice photo to capture it too.

That is really cool. I agree with Summer, I have never seen ours play that way! And can't imagine the old guys even thinking about it!

That's great! Mine don't do that... the younger ones (Lolli, Splash, Pizazz) will rear and plas some but more often they just run around together
