Drool...Your horse is drop dead gorgeous!!

And I'm pretty sure Honor has a sense of humor. One time he attemped to eat my iTouch and was dragging it towards him by one of the earbuds since the headphones were wrapped around it. He also is quite sarcastic if I must say so myself.

That shire is actually beautiful :)

Horses definitely have a sense of humour. Lottie likes to undo the bolt on the stable door when I've forgotten to do the bottom bolt, then she just looks at you like 'see? I'm clever' and slowly saunters out the stable like it's no big deal. Strange horse. :)

Oh yes, I think they have a sense of humor!

I was grooming my sister-in-law's horse who was being cranky, while she was cleaning up a bit. Every time she'd go out of sight, her horse would pick up her rear foot and shake it at me like she was going to kick. As soon as she'd re-appear, her horse would have all 4 feet on the ground standing there like the most perfect angel ever.

It went on for like 20 minutes until I realized what was going on (I was ignoring it, she wouldn't actually kick) and then we tested her out a bit. My sister-in-law walked in and out and in and out of the tack shed and yup, perfect lil angel when Mommy was watching, lil turd threatening to kick when she wasn't!

When I call for my horse out in the field, he looks up as if to say, "Oh God! It's you. What do you want?" When I start walking closer he just slowly saunters away, butt swaying. He never runs, just slowly walks away. When I finally get to him, I say, "What's wrong with you Timmy?" He either puts his head down onto my shoulder or snorts.

It's sooo funny!

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of board, and he'll listen to me any day.

At our first show together in a trail class my mare fria decided to show her humour. I was to move a brush from one barrel to another on the course while mounted. As soon as she saw the brush she stopped dead and looked back at me. I could hear the croud saying "Is she going to pick it up or knock it off"? She continued to nuzzle it around the top of the barrel, and at the last second knocked it off, looked back at me, and started to walk on.

My girl's favourite thing was to 'help' me pick up her manure around the paddock. She would follow me around at my shoulder intently watching everything I did, checking the wheelbarrow for updates. Since the paddock was about 5 acres there was a lot of space to cover so often her little 'packages' would be quite far apart. Then she would actually walk ahead of me and stop at the next one, stop and sniff it then turn and stare at me until I came and picked it up as if to say "what are you waiting for? You aren't done yet!"

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

I know Calli does.
She pulls the most bizzare faces to amuse herself.
And plays with everything in reach...

Lol, I've often commented on how Jack and I have a similar sense of humor! When he was a yearling he was put out to run with his brothers and sisters for about 6 months. Occasionally we have to go through the pasture with a magnet and make sure nothing has worked its way up through the soil. The BOs daughter had a magnet and a bag of miscellaneous metal bits she had picked up. She leaned the magnet against a tree and laid the bag down for a moment to rest and of course Jack wanted to pick up the magnet. After she wrestled it away from him he ducked behind her and grabbed the bag of metal and took off at a gallop swinging his head and flinging everything back into the pasture! He was quite proud of himself.

Buzz has a sense of humour when I walk up to him in the paddock he walks/trots off I stop there cross my arms and he comes back like 'chasy' but then he likes to do this thing when I ride I get off sometime I just let him stand and he usually stand sometimes he doesnt and he walks off to where the entry is with me following then just stand there like 'I think we have done enough today'

There is a horse at our barn that is a big dork. IDK if he has a sense of humor or not, but he always keeps us laughing. Sometimes when we let him in he goes to somebody elses stall (he knows which one is his), If you don't let him out in a timely manner, he will let himself out, he thinks he has to be a part of anything that goes on at the barn and if we are all in the barn and he can't see what we are doing he runs around and calls to drives him crazy Oh and don't even think of leaving the water hose around him unattended
