Walking Eagle BS: What is Whicker all about? (34) RE: BS: What is Whicker all about? 19 Feb 04


So, Does Alan Whickers' horse whicker as they ride off to the hounds? I bet he's in the pink when they do, savvy dresser as he seems to be.

Wild horses silent? Horse hockey! Bit of thread creep here. There is nothing quite like the low growling and screaming wild stallions do when fending off a bachelor stallion. And the soft low reassuring calls he gives his mares after the successful defense of his herd. The just beaten off bachelor has his call as well, 'I'll be back!' Then there are the low calls given from the bell mare to the others when it is time to move out and follow her. Most moving of all are the calls given by mares to their foals. Gentle nickers to reassure the young one that mom is near, the nose blows to recognize each other before the young one tucks in, and the frantic scream she gives when her foal dies or falls prey to a cougar or she is seperated from it and cannot find it. Oh I forgot the cute whinnies of foals at play. And the short, powerful nose blow the stallion gives when a predator is around.
