Tica is the Paso, and she is very opinionated and independent. Other animals get a nasty face and a squeal when they come up to her and as much of a kick as a pregnant mare can give. She loves to be groomed and loved on, though.

Calypso is my boss mare, and she thinks very highly of herself I'd say, haha. She likes begging for treats and tasting Sugar's feed before running to her own. They get the same feed. But, she is a little head shy and puts up with me pretty well.

Sugar is my clumsy oaf. She forgets that I am a fragile person and is the type to walk right into you or knock you with her butt if you're n the way when she turns around. But she is the sweetest, not a mean bone in her body.

Thunder is my sensitive boy. He is the type that if you verbally scold or startle, he'll be nervous until you soothe him later. He is kind of needy and hates to be left by himself.

Blaze is my 33+year old QH gelding. He's sweet as can be on the ground but under saddle he is pushy and incredibly stubborn. I've had him for 13 years and he's become extra stubborn just in the last few years. He loves begging for treats and will tickle you all over with his lips. If you try kissing his nose, he moves his head away for a second then comes right back and will keep doing it then eventually let you actually kiss him. He's not much of a hugger.

As for Callie, my 3 year old mare, she has become a lover. There was a brief period that she wasn't loving at all but that's gone. She's trusting and sociable with people. She's a flirt and knows that she's pretty. She used to prance and gallop around to get nearby horses riled up, especially if geldings were nearby. She's very mellow and level-headed otherwise and just wants to please :)

There's nothing majorly unique about them except the fact that my 3 year old acts like a 10 year old under saddle with how calm she is haha

I don't have a horse, but one of the horses at the barn I ride at likes hats and walkie talkies and basically anything he can get his mouth on. When the barn first got him, we were in the pasture next to the arena and he was there just hanging out with us, and he takes my hat with his teeth, rubs in in the dirt, and shoves it back at me (but I had to do some tug-o'-war to get it back!)!
I was helping out at the barn's summer camp and we were using him for the horse safety zones demo, and I was holding him, and he grabbed the end of my walkie talkie that was clipped to my shorts in his teeth! He was pulling me around a bit with it (he was just moving his head trying to get it off my shorts) and it finally unclipped (thank goodness)! He also will grab anything that's on the hook next to his stall and takes it in his mouth and drops it! He also put his butt up to the stall door once and pooped!
