    Haha my old gelding was fasinated by grass hoppers and the minis. One day I tied him to the hitching post to hose him off and there next to him was a grass hopper. His eyes got wide and he started to try to get closer and when he was just about right next to it it flew away. He also used to escape his pasture and visit my friends moms minis

    I would like to see that.

    I had one of those once. He would walk around and you could almost gear him saying to himself "dur dur dur" He was fun, but dumber than a box of rocks.

    My former mare (she was very smart) was very attached to a barn cat, only one of the barn cats.
    She'd let the cat, with claws, jump up onto her.

    I don't know if my mare is a genius or an idiot. She will untie the cross ties. She won't let you do any sort of work because she is liable to pick up your hammer, your screw driver, your hat and toddle off with it. When we bring the tractor in to rake the pasture she will stand in front of it and try to eat the bucket. Her expression for all of these is "durpy dur".

    I think Ruger would love one of those Jolly Balls! Has it's own little handle for him to pick it up and throw! I got my horse one, she never touched it, but out dog loves it! Lol
    Years ago, we had a horse who loved balls, he had a basketball he had flattened and would play with it all day long

    Came here to read about short bus horses, but all I see here is stories about playful, naturally curious horses who like to interact with the environment, figure out their own use of our world (which, to me, reads SMART), and trust their people deeply. ;) Never underestimate the reasoning that might be going on in their minds. :)

    LMAO I'm loving all this stories! There used to be a horse at my barn Named Honest we called him Doug because he was just like the dog from UP named Doug. Dodo brain had no attention spend at all. You'd be riding him and if he caught sight something he stop dead and just stare at it "wow what is that!" lol He was a funny horse!
