Didn't know where to put this, but just for fun!

I apologize if someone already did this before I don't mean to offend anyone at all.

I was wondering if People can pick out the funny cute things and/or talents that they're horses do, or caught their horses doing.

Something funny and cute that I found Eclipse does is she'll open the gate when you ask her too, she'll reach up with her left hoof to the top of the gate and haul it back towards her and run around quick before it shuts!

Something funny Rhiszo does, thinking..thinking..thinking. When your brushing him with the curry comb, you can stand in one spot and he'll do the moving back and fourth for ya! I thought it was cute!

Derek knows which hoof I'm going to pick out next (I do it in the same order most of the time) and he picks the next foot up for me before I ask him to. He also likes holding my rubber curry in his teeth and shaking his head up and down.

My mare will take the water hose out of the trough and hold it over her head and spray herself and if I get too close she will turn it on me too.

My Dakota likes for me to turn the water hose on and hold it so he can grat the end with his teeth and let his mouth fill up with water.

He also pretty much lifts his hooves for me to pick out.

He knows how to open the gates at out pasture and can intue knots (so I can't tie horses or him up, lol...that's why I initially got crossties...)

He loves being scratched/brushed on his neck and will lift his neck really high and grunt when I brush him there.

Gypsie knows that if she comes up to the gate anytime I'm nearby, she'll get to come out in the yard for a few hours.

She also knows how to open gates and untie things, though she doesn't do it often.

I have never heard of a horse doing this, that is really cute!

Everyone's posts is really cute and funny I love seeing what each horse does differently! I'm very grateful that there is a loving horse community on the net such as this one! Every one take care, I hope to hear more.

My old pony would push open a gate with his nose when it wasnt locked. It was really cute!

Wiski once 'danced' with me. He mimicked my moves back and forth like a mirror and it it probably looked like a waltz from a spectators point of view.

I'm my spare time I ride dragons and runners, practice my Harper skills, talk to dolphins and hang with MasterHarper Robinton.

That would have been too cute to see, I wish I would have been there! I love seeing that kind of stuff! Truly inspiring.
