Waylon is mine, he's only 9 months old so its kinda comical. He grabs the hose and holds in it his mouth, picks up lead ropes and just holds them, he likes grabbing your hoodie and hat strings too, he also now likes to play in the water while being watered. He had a traffic cone he did play with, now he has a jolly ball which he throws in the air then pounces on. He is a funny little horse.

SASSY. OH MY FREAKING GOSH.
She has got to be the mouthiest, brattiest, most child like horse I know. EVERYTHING must go in her mouth at least once. She once got into the barn, and tried to eat our pool chlorine tablets.
My dad had to make a gate for the back of our flat bed trailer, because she would get on it and it would roll half way across the pasture. She did that a good 5 times, so it must be fun!
We set up sprinklers in our pasture during the summer, and Sassy will stand in it for hours. She is also notorious for standing in the water trough and trying to lay down.
When she was little, the fence around the pool blew over, around January. So, she walks half way across the pool cover before it ripped and she fell in. All you could see was the bump underneath the cover from her butt:P
Sassy also believes that everyone is her best friend. At a drill competition, I was in the middle of the sweep, when she decided from a fast lope to stop and say high to the horse next to her. She is always nuzzling other horses and pushing and playing with them.

My monster is the same way! I got a call while I was in class from my barn owner saying ummmm.... Sexy Man is out in our front yard... I was like um what? She's like yeah he figured out how to unlatch his stall aparently. He knows how to unzip pockets for treats and he thinks zippers are fun to play with anyway. He always seems to think there is something in peoples hoods and whenever someone turns their back to him and they have a hood on their coat or jacket he sticks his face right in it. He's also the one as soon as you put his blanket on and then turn your back to him he pulls it off his back and starts flinging it around. He knows how to untie himself from where ever he is no matter how I tie it. OH and his recent trick is scooting out of his winter blanket without breaking anything. He knows how to undo the belly straps and im not sure how he gets past the leg straps in the back but he does and he slides right out of it without ever breaking anything. O.O the blanket is his perfect size and adjusted to him but I've found it a few times layin in his stall in the morning and he's just sitting there staring at me like Yeah that's right I did that!
He also seems to think technology is tasty. He also finds it fun to zap himself with the electric fence. He sticks his nose to it till it zaps him and then he takes off, a minute later he does it again! He does it till his nose must be tingling becuz he eventually stops and just looks at me slob dripping from his mouth and nose. He's kind of strange....

A horse which stops dead just before a jump and thus propels its rider into a graceful arc provides a splendid excuse for general merriment.

Hahaha Tazz is like that. You name it, he's probably tried to eat it.
He's destroyed every single bucket we've ever given him by doing what you see in the picture. I've tacked up Lottie in the field before and Tazz has come along, took the reins in his mouth and started walking off with them. He's once nibbled at the strap on my wellies and picked them up along with my entire leg still in them! He won't let you groom him without him grooming you, he picks up my grooming kit and swings it backwards and forwards!


Mount up and leave your troubles behind on the ground.

Charm is quite the nosey bugger as well. She LOVES tipping anything over whether it be my grooming tote or cones in the indoor arena. Oh gosh don't get me started on the cones! She goes to each and everyone and either tips it over with her nose or proceeds to kick and paw the crap out of them. Considering she is a barrel horse I rather she didn't want things to fall over if you know what I mean.
The cats and dogs are always interesting too. Charm likes to give them a good grooming with her tongue and nose. Haha.

"Corporal" was nosey. Buster Brown IS nosey and he's been teaching Cup & Cakes to play with stuff, too. I was cleaning C&C's stall (last week, bad weather, he stayed in the stall with me), and when I brought in the pine pellets he pawed and chewed them open for me before I could return with (dull) scissors to open them. Btw, try NOT to bring your retractable razor or whatever you prefer to use to slice baling twine on bales into an enclosed area with your nosey horse bc you might end up slicing him instead.
Buster almost ALWAYS throws either his rubber grain bucket OR his Jolly Ball or BOTH through the open window from shelter to barn so I can find them there--how thoughtful! =/
He also will undo his BFF's halter if he's on the other side of the fence.
Corporal, the great escape artist, used to open gates and undo ties in lead ropes. ALL of my horses love to pick up and move ANY rubber buckets left within reach. Buster will put his head and neck through the fencing to grab anything--the last thing he pulled in the play with was my rubber gardening bucket.

You'd THINK that they both watch my dogs with the way those two pick up sticks and play tug-o-war with them.
