My husband and I work at a boarding facility, cleaning stalls, breaking the ice on the water buckets, refilling waters, etc. This one horse at the ranch just began getting leased out to a new lady, and a couple weeks ago the horse suddenly had this floating football in her water bucket (I guess to keep her entertained? Haha), then today when my husband was breaking the ice buckets and came to her stall, he gave me a strange look, and lifted a dummy/decoy duck out of her water. The things that that lady/or the owner keeps putting in the water keeps getting stranger and stranger, lol.
Also, when there's a well broke horse with a paranoid scared owner, who goes up to the horse with the saddle pad or other piece of tack, they ask the horse if they can put it on. "Is it okay if I put this on you? Okay I'm going to put the pad on you now" haha.
What are the strangest/weirdest things you've seen other horse people do? Or say?
