What's a Brown Horse?
For you Horsemen/women out there, not color of course.
I'm fixin' to head down to the LE Fishlake & LE Pahvant for a photo/scouting trip and the dad, mom and daughter that I shared my 20 General deer points with want to take a day and ride horses up on the Pahvant area we drew out to hunt.
I said that I haven't ridden a horse in like 8-9 years back with my Dad before he went into the Veterans retirement home.
So, the daughter says she has a Brown horse for me to ride and not color. She wouldn't say, just that I wouldn't have any worries.
I have been around and trained a lot of horses, and been around a lot of horse trainers. I have never heard of that term.
As long as she didn't say "green", no worries :^)
I'm with BIGERN... My money is on a mule, or maybe a burro...8^)
Maybe you have to put quarters in it to ride.
Thoroubride is sometimes called a brown horse
Brown horse use to mean learning horse also.
I've been around horses most of my life and have never heard anyone use the term "brown horse" unless they were just describing the coat color...usually a dark bay.
Thats a new one. Maybe she just means the opposite of green? Maybe the color of your drawers after you try to ride him? I hear brown and just think sorrel horse.
Youll have to let us know.
Maybe it was delivered by UPS?
New one to me and I used to own horses and bred a few. Is she possibly red-green colorblind and meant "green"? (Joke)
Any chance it’s a motor vehicle?
From Google. I'm not a horse guy. Sounds like Robb is in for a good trip though.
The brown horse symbolizes strength, control, success and freedom. It is able to overcome any obstacles it faces through strong work-ethic and connectedness with the Earth.
A brown horse in a dream is usually a message about the need to be strong and take control. Similarly, the brown horse spirit animal can bring you strength as you seek success and personal freedom.
The term ‘brown’ is casually applied to several coat colors while some registries use it to refer to either dark bay or seal brown coat color. The American Paint Horse Association and American Quarter Horse Association both acknowledge ‘brown’ as a distinct color. Casual observers often represent bay or chestnut as ‘brown’. In fact, brown includes different shades like chestnut, bay, buckskin, silver dapple, and dun.
I think it is slang for a good dose of heroin. ???????
I rode a barrel racing horse years ago and his name was brown. He was brown in color too.
Fuzzy, when you “bred a few”, were you standing on a stool or…………….?
Be brave, grasshopper.
Have been around horses quite a bit, never heard the term. Owned a "brown" horse that taught me a lot about deer hunting. Sounds like a beautiful ride, enjoy.
What does a brown horse symbolize? From Google Search Understanding the Meaning of Seeing a Brown Horse in Your ... The brown horse symbolizes strength, resilience, and endurance. It represents your ability to withstand challenges and overcome obstacles. The image of a horse galloping freely through the fields evokes feelings of power, grace, and freedom.
If this fits, wear it. My best , Paul
A brown horse might be when you're losing the battle 5 blocks from home but you only 3 blocks worth of waiting left...you're going to end up riding the brown horse!
I would have asked.Been immersed in horses mules donkeys my whole life I'm thinking it's something motorized unless it's local slang ex. "Montana traveller" or "Florida Cracker horses" etc
Been around and have owned horses for 63 years and I've never heard that term applied like that. All references to brown that I've ever heard in regards to horses was entirely for coat color.
Robb, Just make sure it is not a "Strawberry Roan" as in the song by Marty Robbins. Badbull
When I showed up at a WY ranch at 18 to work with little horse experience:
"Get a horse from the corral. Roan is Pete, black one is Twister"
I grabbed a horse named Bill, didn't know what roan meant and didnt want one named "Twister". You can guess the rest of the story.
Badbull, that is one of my favorite Marty Robbins songs, the horse’s description makes me laugh every time.
Thanks for the input All.
Funny and comical too.
I've been taking some re-fresher riding lessons for the last 2 weeks, twice a week and the cowgirl @ the riding class says she only uses Brown horses for her classes/students as they are very easy going, forgiving and don't get spooked very easily ect.
Which coincides with some of the statements posted here and via some private statements.
Sounds like a fun family adventure.Thats what we call a "kids horse".
Local vernacular for what we also call a "made" horse (opposite of green). Meaning, trained, calm, (hopefully) bombproof. Which is what you want for that task. Good luck and have fun!
heroin...enjoy your trip. lol
