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. That's 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 folks...here 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!"
("It's good to be day boss"!)
