    I loove this topic its giving me a ton of ideas on what to do with chance!

    These are somethings I do
    - Some parelli things
    - when I go catch her I'll run beside her half way across the pasture cause sometimes she gets excited and canters and I can't always keep up with that :P
    - In the round pen Ill let her off the line and walk away and sit in the middle and just go into my own world I guess and sometimes she will just come up to me check me out and sometimes just stand there head low. I love it cause It shows that she must have some loving for me lol
    - After a work out and after she's cooled down ill just kinda let the lead rope have slack in it and let her graze and take me for a walk.
    - If I have a apple for her [shes food mezermized SP?] She will do anything for it so I tease her Ill raise it up really high or real low I try and get her to bow but she doesnt get it lol lol its so funny then I finally give it to her.
    - This isnt really a fun thing I do but it is funny I was rubbing MTG on her face and I let her smell it and she put her uper lip sooo far and stood there for like 4 mins hahaha
    - Before I ever do anything with chance I love to just take 45 mins and just groom and make her shine. She's always itchy so Ill scratch her like crazy as well :P she always trys to groom me back :P ANd if I get a really itchy spot she will raise her head up and stick up her lip :P

    Sorry it was so long!

    I ride him(Doc) bare back and just usually just talk to him! He(Doc) also loves to gallop on the trails! And I also spend alot of time with Chika. (a horse that is boarded in our pasture) She loves to play tag and hide,n,go seek! Especially since she is not even a year old!

    I take Willy out bareback a lot, and take him for walks to fresh, long grass. I paint his hooves, and try different treats with him. After a bath I throw his blanket on, and let him out in the turnout to roll. He can get his kicks and still stay clean! :)

    I need to add another :) I scratch a lot of butts My niece was asking why I keep my nails done. I told her it so you can't see the dirt under them from scatching horse butts.

    haha, I forgot to add butt scratching too!! My mule LOVES to have his butt scratched...i'll be petting his face and he'll turn around and put his butt in my face (don't worry, he's not being aggressive, just a hambone) he loves having his tail massaged

    Mlkarel2010 Glad I'm not alone Vida will always turn her butt to me to be scratched. If some horse expert saw it they would probably say "oh that horse is being disrespectful!" She will stand for hours if I will keep scratching.

    Oh, another thing (this may make me out to be a little OCD, but hey) I have this little routine I do while grooming her... I don't ever just do a quick groom; I first spray her mane and tail with ShowSheen (detangles it), then let that sit while I do her feet and rubber curry her. Then I groom her with 3 stiffnesses of brushes, then go and do her mane and tail.
    Yep, OCD.. but it's my special maia routine.
