I'm a tack collector. I have 4 bridles for my two horses. =p I will soon have 2 saddles, a harness and cart (or maybe two of each). I have a bitting harness, 3 sets of polo wraps, tons of halters and gloves, four blankets. Two horses. Not quite as bad as some of you guys. =]
I also check every horse trailer for horses.
I sit in my gelding's stall and watch him eat hay. Sometimes he comes over to say hi or for kisses. Sometimes when he lays down I put his head in my lap. This is usually when I'm really stressed out and need to unwind.
My mare hates me. The other day I put her in her stall and took her halter off and she went to go eat hay. I called her over to pet her and give her some love before I left, and she was sweet for a good 5 minutes. Then she started to lean into me and took a step towards the door. I pushed her back, but she pushed me out, stepped on my foot (and as I tried to grab her, I fell on my hands and knees into a fence board) and galloped away.
Talk about witch! There are other incidents to add testimony. =p
I've always wanted to take my gelding trick or treating on halloween, but sadly I was never allowed.
I give my horses dozens of kisses everytime I see them. My gelding gets overspoiled with treats, but because my mare is only three I'm trying to only give her treats as reinforcement. (Smokey is always a good boy, so he deserves treats)
I am so happy my mare and gelding go out together. My gelding used to be sour to catch, but my mare comes galloping up when called. So naturally, in competition for my attention, so does my gelding. =]
I talk to my gelding more than my mare. He's more of a confidant.=]
I slow down everytime I pass a horse farm, and try to find the arena and whether there are horses in it. (and feel stupid that I think I can actually accomplish something from a 3 second glance)
I LOVE pushbutton horses. My gelding is one, at least for the 14 and under crowd.
I LOVE watching my gelding when he gives little kid lessons. He is so cute.
I want to own a farm of Morgans one day. All Champions :roll:
And maybe a Friesan. =]
