    Nope, no short bus horse here.

    He's very very SMART! Just because things like his dinner or a differently colored bucket scare the begeebers out of him doesn't make him dumb. Nor does his innate ability to trip over every single rock, twig and weed in his path. He'll eventually stop marching every time I put back boots on him..... he just needs more time (a year just hasn't been long enough).

    Tail flaps on blankets are REALLY scary and warrant trying to run away from them when the breeze moves them. Being left alone while tied? VERY scary and no, a trainer, a BO, a small child, a saddle fitter, a Vet or a Farrier is NOT an acceptable babysitter, they just make things MORE scary!

    Trailers eat horses, water eats horses, rocks, sticks and park benches all eat horses.

    The arena fence falling down though? Now that wasn't scary... The neighbor's dog attacking and mauling their pigs? Not scary at all!

    He's not at all short bus.... he's just special!

    Well, he is cute as a button and looks like he is fun to be around!!!

    Hubby's horse Sarge is smart as a whip - but he is still funny as all get out. If he is tied somewhere and there is something - anything - in his reach, he is going to tear it up, throw it down, push it or whatever he can manage. He has pulled all of the foam insulation off of the pipes on the washrack, ripped my trailer spare tire wheel cover to shreds, pulled off tack or whatever is on the ledge....and then he looks at you like "what? Is there a problem?"

    He is mischievous as all get out. : )

    Oh Stilts is my specials needs horse....we don't call him Crash for nothing!

    If there is something that is within his reach it will be destroyed. He walks around with his rubber tub in his mouth flipped up over his head. (I have a sneaking suspicion this is how he got the huge dent in his forehead) Then he will play fetch with himself with the tub. My husband has a video of it on his phone, if I could ever to get videos to load onto my computer properly I would post it.

    A couple of months ago we bought a new BBQ and was putting it together, he reached over the gate and grapped one of the cardboard boxes and preceded to chase the the other horses with it.

    If I tie him next to the tackroom door, everything within reach is tipped over and thrown on the ground.

    One time I was going to clip him and I had left the clippers in the laundry room. I dropped the lead rope to step inside to grab them and he decided to follow me in the house.

    He also trys to work the neighbors cows on the other side of the fence.

    If nothing else he makes for good entertainment!

    Short Bus Imposter

    My boy is exceptional at fooling people into believing he came off a short bus... In reality, it's his brilliant way of avoiding anything involving energy exertion for anything other than food.

    He is a pro at popping the hub caps off the trailer... And the top of the tires are always slobbered clean of dust... Or perhaps he's just trying to tell us to replace those crap bias-plies...

    At the first barn we boarded at, one of the mares routinely took down the fence
    (obviously had some issues with the wiring!) The other 3 would take off for parts unknown... MINE would stand there yelling at the top of his lungs "MOM!!! THEY ARE GETTING OUT!!! MOOOOMMMMM!" till the BO would come out and chase them down. There is a lot to be said for being both barn sour AND lazy!
