    Question Horse Opinion or Fluke?

    Okay, today I checked on the horses and saw T without the mask I had put on her in the am. Hmmmmmmmmm...not easy to take off. So upon investigating, I found it on the ground in the paddock and COVERED in horse poop! I mean direct hit!

    Got me wondering, do you think she was sending me a very clear message?

    Have any of your horses given you the impression of their opinion about something? Just curious.

    Well, I have a little story where I think my horse expressed his opinions to me loud and clear.

    I was doing some ground work with my old horse, Vega. We were working in the arena and there was several low jumps set up in the arena. I had gotten Vega to a point where he joined up with me and was following me around the arena. I wanted to see if he would follow me if I stepped over the jump. I stepped over the first one and he stopped in front of it and said to me with his eyes, "You're kidding me right?" But he gave my opinion a chance and went ahead and stepped over it. I praised him and we circled back to the other side to try again. I stepped over it again and he stopped again and looked at me, saying with his eyes, "This is completely unnecessary, you know that don't you? Here let me show you." Vega reached down and grabbed the rail between his teeth, he picked it up off the standards and dropped it to the ground. He then proceeded to walk around the jump and return to my shoulder. I laughed so hard! He just nuzzled my arm and said, "Next time, lets go with my plan, ok?"

    I swear, that's how it went down.

    Love it! That's called "working smart not hard". Sounds like your horse has a wonderful personality!

    He does. Sadly, I don't own him anymore :( He was great on the ground but he was a terror undersaddle. I didn't have enough experience to give him the training he needed. I ended up braking my arm coming off of him and I wasn't able to work with him after that. So I sold him. I miss him to pieces though...

    Oh my gosh Cobalt is like a kid. He is soooo easy to read it's ridiculous. I think as a foal I spent to much time treating him like an actual child that now I swear he immitates people behaviors and expressions. I think most horses are like that but we just don't realise it.

    My dad was cleaning a stallions stall, and the stud picked him up by the back of his shirt and chucked him out of the stall. Guess the stallion didn't want to be bothered!

    Oh my GOSH!!! Are you serious? How in the world did that happen? It must have been a big stallion (either that or your dad is small). What breed was the stallion?
