Making a Point
I think what he was saying was something like this:
"I told you I'm really really cool like that- don't test me!"
What do you guys think?
Ditto is a new band stallion as of July '12. He had an elder 28 year old mare rather briefly, and her colt Juniper (Majesty's silver dapple overo offspring), last year, but the mare apparently passed on naturally, leaving him to care for the dappled 2 year old colt (Feb youngster), and they've gotten along very well. Now he's a true blue band stallion, overseeing more mares and their foals, but still allows young Juniper to stay.
On the other side is another Steens icon, Jack (One-eared Jack- lost a portion of his ear from fighting- one to never back down- one tough hombre.
Ditto goes out of his way to partake in fights, and on this day when multiple bands came down to water in the late afternoon, he spent much time being full of himself, strutting and displaying his amazing self with multiple stallions, showing how strong and important he was- and "too powerful to mess with" especially now that he had a big responsibility as harem stallion.
