Funny things they do...

So, I recently started a new working student position 1100 miles away from my home town. This morning I went out to the pasture to get a couple of the warmbloods I work with and while I'm haltering one, the second one in the pasture quickly took his head, and shoved under my bum, picking me up off my feet and tossing me about 6 feet from where I was. I laughed so hard I just couldn't correct him for the behavior.

Anyone else have something funny your horse, or a horse you work with does?

Firstly can I say, I'm super jealous! I've always wanted to have the opportunity to be a working student!

My little Paint Danny likes to get up behind/beside/anywhere near you and "itch" you with his top lip. He does it on your hands, neck, back, wherever he can get to and moves his lip side to side like he's trying to burrow through hay. At first I thought it was him getting ready to bite but nope, he'll do it all day if you let him haha

Shorty likes to put his head down when Im riding him, and since he's only about 10hh, and very narrow and short, when that head goes down, I go down with it lol, and Dani meets dirt hahaha

Hahahaha, Yeah. I love my job, but holy crap its a LOT of work. Around 100 horses, 2000 acres, and 4 people to do it all... :P Plus, every single one of these horses has their own personality, so things happen all the time. Lol, but I just love those two warmbloods I was working with yesterday morning. They're sweethearts.

I still laugh about this one that happened several years ago.
There was a Thoroughbred and a Hanovarian in the gelding field who were best friends.
One time I was riding the Hanovarian, Bear, for a lesson, so I went out and haltered him and started leading him in, and he just froze. This was very unusual for this guy, who was usually so eager to please.
So I turned around to see what was going on, and the Thoroughbred had a firm grip on Bear's halter with his mouth. Poor Bear couldn't figure out what to do.

I told this one a while back on another thread, but I'll tell it again.
My trainer has a big off-track thoroughbred gelding (Justin) who loves to jump. Like, really loves to jump. She can point him at a five-foot fence and he'll willingly take it from a standstill.
He must have gotten bored one night, because they went out for morning feeding and found that he had drug his water trough into the middle of the paddock... to jump it! Here was Justin, galloping around and jumping his water trough.

My trainer was cleaning the barn, turned around to see her horse had escaped from his stall and came walking up to her, carrying a bucket of horse treats I had hanging on my horse's stall. Hi mom, could ya open this for me? I'm starving!!
