Geiger is charged with two counts of animal cruelty.

It will be alleged Geiger let off a fire extinguisher in the face of iconic Rockhampton Clydesdales Kenny and Bailey on a Friday night earlier this year, while being the passenger in a moving vehicle.

No plea was entered this morning and Geiger's matters were adjourned until February 28 for police to consider submissions made by Mr Grant on Geiger's behalf.
