I'm sixteen and I play "dress up" with my horse. When I want to hang out with him but its too cruddy to leave the barn I'll sit on a saw-horse or tall bucket in his stall and braid his mane and put little ribbons on it them and fuss with hats and all sorts of fun stuff.. I'll brush him, and braid his tail, (try) to plait it, shine his hooves, all sorts of stuff. Climb on him and lay on him making poses and taking pictures. :) I'm a dork but he enjoys the attention.
