Thank you for not sharing the same gritty details as does Animal Planet. Really, every time I breeze past that station animals are doing it.
Maybe the mares are but having taken care of 4 males for a year, they were always "hanging out"! Just like a man. haha.
A lot of animals mate in the spring, and I either never realised it was because of this, or just didn't really think about it.
Excellent bit of trivia, I shall use to impress and amuse my friends with
Females should definitely have the say!
Interesting fact, I didn't know before!
You learn something every day!
Just mating in winter wouldn't be enough, glad i'm not pony.
I pretty much feel the same way...
That...actually makes sense. I'm just sayin'...
The more i know, the more i feel bad about them.
Nature makes an amazing amount of sense!
I wish I had planned my pregnancies so well.
I refuse to think about mating ponies. Fluttershy isn't that kind of pony. hrumph!
well... good for them
thank you for that info i feel smarter now..hehe have a great weekend
My uncle used to be in in equine husbandry...some pictures you never get out of your head.
I hope my first born son isn't a pony. That would be hard because it's difficult to raise a horse in an appartment.
I wish humans were that smart.
Are you sure its not just because it's damn cold in winter and who the hell wants to try to get it on when you have to strip off 4 layers of clothing/pony fur to get a few minutes of action? Stallions are notoriously selfish, after all. Not to mention, we all gain a little winter weight, maybe ponies have lower self esteem during those months.
Having had a baby born near the beginning of February, in the middle of a snowstorm, I can relate to that mare's logic.
Makes sense to me!
That's actually a kind of a neat fact.
nice post :P
Really? Is that so....
