My horse is very "tricky"


I own two american saddlebred geldings Who are both beautiful.intelligent. Stubborn.loving horses. I am writing this thread to tell you about my 9 year old his "Tricks" where he opens his stall door and arena doors, office doors.
When my horse wants something he gets it, even out of a tail set. When he was two years old, he somehow unhooked and took off his entire tail set, in which I was confused?! And still have no idea how he got out of his tail set....
My horse is also known for unlocking his stall door and going to eat some hay, He always finds the hay even when I put it in the storage room that has a door that's closed by the way! He just smells it and follows it to the hay and pushes the door open with his big o head.
He has done this his entire life, He also will go and eat hay then pass out right infront of the door of the hay. Like Yes, I did this and I am going to sleep like a fat kid infront of the door haha.

Try carabiner clips. My one horse was a Houdini about getting out and into stuff he wasn't supposed to. Carabiner clips stopped him in his tracks.

Years ago I was keeping Spike at a friend's barn. She called on day and said "You forgot to turn off the water after you fed last night, and now the whole barn is flooded!"
She was so mad, but I was POSITIVE I turned it off. How could I not? The hose was split, so we had to bring the buckets to the spigot, and it was very messy and a pain in the tail and it was basically impossible to not know it was on. Anyway, we spent all day 'sweeping water out of the stalls and aisle.
A week later she called to apologise. She went out a few hours after She fed to do a last check, and sure enough, the water was on full. Spike was in the stall right by the tap, and the stall only had a half door. The faucet handle was broken, and Spike had a bloody lip! So he had to trade stalls with the mini!

I used to ride at a stable with a livery horse that did this! They ties a mile bottle to the bolt of the stable to keep him occupied and it also stopped him from lifting the bolt up.

Hunter used to get out of his blanket all the time with his previous owner. She never knew how but she would get up in the morning and his blanket would be lying on the ground. He also escaped 2 times while at the trainers, we figured out how when he got stuck under his back gate in his paddock trying to shimmy out on his side. Silly goose, half of him was in and half was out. Wish they would have gotten a picture.

LOL, reading this reminds me of Stoeka. When she was around, at the old barn you could never keep her in a paddock she didn't want to be in. She was only an odd 14hh, but she could jump over all of the fences there, and if it was too high, she would just go under it.

She also knew exactly which way each and every gate opened. Like her stable door would open to the inside, so whenever I didn't latch the door properly she would pull the gate towards herself, reverse, then just walk out. :roll:
