I'm not sure what this says about me but...

I don't have a short bus horse. But I REALLY want to get a horse and NAME it The Short Bus.

Can you imagine the announcers at shows......."Now entering...number soandso riding "The Short Bus." hehehe. I probably wouldn't ever be able to finish a course or test I'd be laughing so hard.

Her favorite thing to do is pretend that she's a chipmunk. She's on limited hay unlike most of our horses because she's such an easy keeper, and a few months ago she started 'hoarding' her feed. We toss her two flakes in the morning and one at night with her grain, and every morning she'll eat one of her flakes and pick the rest up-mouthful by mouthful- and stick it up in an old almost dead tree to keep it away from her two pony stablemates (11 and 11.2hh) to save for later. Thats all fine and dandy, but she ALWAYS forgets which one she puts it in (even though the hay is very obviouse stuck between branches) and wanders around the paddock for hours calling to her food and poking her head in each of the trees looking for her hay.
Okay comes my standard ROFLMAO! Each and every one of these is fantastic but there is that "SPECIAL STORY" (to keep with the "special" theme!) every night that makes my shift at the psych hospital trucking along with my steady stream of laughter & my co-workers sighing with,"Okay Tammy...go ahead and read it to us!"

XD Xcia says that she's glad to be of help...I'm telling you. She does nothing but reinforce people's impression on arabs. Hairbrained and crazy. That is...unless the word 'w-o-r-k' has to do with it.

Let's see... Challenger likes to knee his grain bucket that's mounted in the corner of his stall, just to have the sensation of the grain flying into his face and nose...

Rascal thinks its oh-so fun to paw and stomp when in the water or mud just to get his handler as wet/dirty as possible!

And Zeak and Bean prefer eating trees and bushes to their lush pasture! Silly horses.

My Percheron "Pollo Loco" is obsessed with chasing the chickens around and trying to scare the pigs! His name means crazy Chicken in Spanish. Who knew it was so literal.
