seen a couple horses scare themselves once last week I was tacking up a horse in her stall and she bumped her water bucket and it *gasp* made a NOISE! she jumped back and when I tried to bring her back to it she stood like a rock, so I left her to figure it out herself, she's gonna need water and some point.
the first time was a particularly spooky horse who was scared of life 9 and now is able to have a gunshot form his back...my little baby's all grown up
) he sniffed a piece of paper and his breath moved it, clearly terrifying I just stood there like "really Gman? really? YOU MADE THAT HAPPEN!
