These stories are so cute!
I have tons of these little stories, but I really like one about my mare, Bebe.
She has always been a very herd oriented horse, if you know what I mean. She doesn't like to be away from the herd and can get sour easily. She also did NOT like to be in the barn. I was the only one to work with her for a long time because everyone else was afraid of her so she was really close to me. When I would bring her in (in the beginning of her training) she would dance, and pace in her stall, whinny for the herd and try to run through her stall door everytime it was opened. After a little while she became comfortable with me and would be okay as long as I was in sight. I would go into her stall and she would calm right down. But if she could see me helping another person with their horse, she would try to get my attention by making weird faces. Opening her mouth really wide, sticking her tongue out the side and shaking her head so her tongue hit her in the face. She would also make grunting noises and whinny at me until I came back.
TALK ABOUT ATTENTION HOG!! Lol I love that horse though. She's a sweetheart.
Another time, I had a three year old quarter horse mare in training and hadn't seen her in a week. I came out to ride her and she was at the back of the field with the herd. So I stood on the manure pile (don't ask) and called her name to see if I could get her attention. She came RUNNING from the back of the field, full out gallop. I thought she was going to jump over that manure pile! She came to a dead stop infront of it and nickered to me, it was ADORABLE :)
I love horses.
