Carrot Snatcher

"Hey Ozzie!! What ya doing? Come on over here!!" "Uhm....I was eating grass, but I can take a minute to see what you are doing.""Good boy! Come on, don't walk so slow!""Is this close enough for ya? What did you want?""Huh, I didn't quite hear ya, could you say it louder into my good ear. What was that? Something about carrots!!""Oh, thank you, dum dar my favorites!"*Munch, munch, munch, munch.* Oh, how I love those lips. The way it wrinkles when he eats. Ozzie is a spoiled carrot eater. He expects the carrot giver to help him break it into smaller pieces. You have to grab the end and pull up against his teeth so it will break. Then he will munch away. Everything was going great until there was only one carrot left. And guess what happened to that one carrot? Someone stole it!"WHAT! Someone took my last carrot? They shall pay! Just tell me who it was!""Ah HA! I found the culprit. Belle stole my carrot!"Belle thinking, "Man, he's big". Belle then replies, "Carrot what carrot? I didn't see any carrot!"Ozzie then sternly replies, "Look Dog, I saw you take it, now give it back! Or, or I will be forced to.....uhm....forced to......Just give me back my carrot.""What's the big deal? It's just a carrot? Sheesh.""Yum, Yum, Yum, Yum!" Then Ozzie gave me the butt, because I was out of carrots. But don't worry, Ozzie and Belle made up and are still good friends. Don't worry Ozzie, I won't tell the Mares you were loving on a Dog! Then about two seconds later a huge black cloud moved over us and unleashed the loudest THUNDER!"EEKKKKK!" The sky opened up and let loose of some serious rain. I ran for the house. Oh, and I have a random question for everyone, what color would you say Ozzie is?That is Ozzie as a five month old. Funky right? So, just let me know what color you think he is.

Great pics! God he looks like an Aussie stock horse! Blood Bayish like...hmmmm..what the heck color do you descibe him as?

Sydney said...

Pangare bay for sure :D the muzzle and lighter bits of hairs in his mane, tail and on his legs give it away.

Paint Girl said...

I would say he is bay, but he has the lighter hairs in his mane and tail, and as a baby he doesn't look bay. Hmmm....
Love the commentary with Ozzie and Belle! My Aussie Sadie always tries to steal the carrots too! I never realized dogs liked carrots, until Sadie took one and ate it!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! Pony Girl would make a cute goat farmer, wouldn't she? LOL!

Pony Girl said...

Oh, I love this series of pictures! Ozzie looks really cute, and quite the character. It's nice Bella and him get along so well! Except for the carrot fights, hee hee!
My first guess was bay on the color...although as a 5 mo. old, not as much. Maybe a dark buckskin?

lisa said...

Ozzie is so handsome with a charming personality. More carrots & pics please.

kdwhorses said...

Love it! Too funny! I have a few that LOVES carrotts as well! Bella is getting so big!

I would say he is some sort of Bay, with his coloring now. But as a foal he looks more like a line back dun or buckskinish color!

What color is he?

Tiffany said...

I love the pic of Ozzie and Belle where it looks like he's eating her head. LOL And my bulldog LOVES carrots too.

Nuzzling Muzzles said...

Belle looks a little bit like a carrot herself. My horses will eat anything orange.

Tj and Mark said...

I love your commentary and series of outstanding photos. I am not sure of the color, but I really think that Ozzie still needs a lot of emotional growth. He is going to be a late bloomer. I know you have had some struggles, but he will be fine. Try to do some trail riding with someone on a dependable horse, let Ozzie mature some more. You can call me the horse psychic...ha,ha,ha. I read hooves too. lol.

Tj and Mark said...

I just did some internet searching and I think he was a yellow bay as a baby and matured into more of a red bay. What do you think?

Margaret Cloud said...

I like your pictures, they are so cute. Do you want his color now or when he was young? He sure did grow up looking very handsome.

Melanie said...

I cannot believe that Ozzie doesn't stomp your dogs!!! Our dogs always steal carrots away from the horses too. :)

I would say that Ozzie is definitely bay, but he does look like he can't decide whether he wants to be a buckskin or a bay...lol!!!

Great pictures by the way.....

Stephanie said...

Bay - all the way. I mean I know there are all kinds of different shades of bay - but genetically there are no "red bays and orange bays" there is just a gene designated as "bay" like with sorrel/chestnut - other factors determine how red or brown or yellow it will be.

The Wife said...

My answer to the color...he's brown! ;o) I'm a cattle girl, what can I say!

Cute pics. Love the pics with the dog.

JAN'S PLACE said...

I am so very bad at horse colors. That is definitely not my area of expertise. I'd say he's a beauty no matter what color.

Laughing Orca Ranch said...

Ozzie's color is......SorBay! (Get it? Sorbet? Sorrel and Bay? hehe)

All I know is he is gorgeous! And sure has filled out a lot.
And Belle? She is a BIG DOG! What happened to that adorable little bitty puppy? Wow! They grow fast, don't they?!

Your post made me smile today...just when I needed it. Thanks!

You're so clever - great pics!

Five O'Clock Somewhere said...

Love the interaction between Ozzie and Belle. Great shots!

The grey nose kind of throws me off, but he looks like a bay.
