    Okay, it has come to my attention during a recent conversation... that these race horses often race with non-clipped out ears... they are HAIRY !!! Now, surely.. come on... havent they heard of aerodynamics??? Okay, so said horse still won its trial... but I mean seriously !!!! It could of won so much faster if the wind didnt get caught up in the hairs to produce drag....... sigh.. some people just dont learn do they. :) :) :) :)

    Hehe off to go laugh by myself because I am soo funny.

    haha biscay...

    all our horses have hairy ears, more to cudde up to! they love you touching there ears, i think because when the breakers break them in the do everything properly and play with their ears alot.

    We can get out fingers right down in their ears to clean them out and they fall asleep

    LMFAO I love it!!!!!!!!

    Eh, he won his trial with hair sticking out further than the actual ear itself....maybe it acts like a spoiler on a car...actually, wouldnt have mattered because he came across the line with his ears pinned flat back against his head - right choice too, he had to run in pouring rain and a howling wind.

    PMSL "Winged Keel"......biscay your an idiot!!! Maybe your onto something Tain so his ears are NEVER going to be clipped.

    I agree Heifer, If they were supposed to have nekkid ears they would, and no horse should suffer the indignity of losing his/her cool.
