My horse is scared of really dark slick pavement, cracks in the pavement, concrete,Donkey Bray (not the donkey it'self just the noise it makes!), Cows but only Dark cows with bald faces or light colored cows. If they are black she is fine or if they have bald faces or are light colored she is ok as long as they don't look at her lmao

Stiffler "spooked" tonight over a leaf that was flipped upside down showing the lighter green side of it. He also spooked at seeing his bareback pack when it wasn't on his back. He's a goof LOL

A Starbucks cup that wasn't there the last time we passed the rail=bolt down the long side during a fun show when I was a beginning rider(this was not a horse I owned, but a lesson horse). I stayed on and got control quite quickly at least.

I learned tonight that Flash is scared of deer. On the plus side - we saw a deer! Haha.

Cricket is fine with anything. Cars? No problem. Bikes? A breeze! Trash bags? PSH!

Small fluffy sheep and the occasional goose? Horse eating MONSTERS. Oh, and goats are out to get us too, but we can chase cows all day. Figure that one out.

My bombproof gelding that had a three year old girl ride him not long ago decided that a pair of mating turtles in the middle of the trail was something to snort, blow air, and run past. Who knows...perhaps turtle sex scares him lol...

Same bombproof horse suddenly decided a stump was going to eat him as well once...but that was a long time ago...

My mare is scared of alpacas, she used to be scared of sheep too but is over that now. I horse I used to ride once spooked at his own shadow! We were on a bank and the angle of the sun made his shadow be below us, he really hated that!! He also once spooked at a lesson book lying on the ground when a page blew open as we rode past "AARGH it's going to eat me!!!!!"

We saw a bunch of bailing twine (string) on the trail once.
Apparently my horse thought it was a very long, very skinny, very blue snake -_-
