PB,
As stated earlier, there are a lot of posts to read and I find myself not responding each and every one of them every time. I don't think any of us expect to get a response out of every post we make. It may seem like it is being ignored, but more likely just not having a proper response to what may have seemed like a statement rather than a conversation. I hope you stick around as I am new to this group also.

Ruth,
I add to the welcome wagon and hope to see many more posts in here from you and the mini. I am a toddler to the 40s and going through my terrible twos, lol.

AlexS,
We are all Gods in our own minds and so fitting that our horses are the same......there. lol

I am not going to waste my time entering my fellow in the contest as it would resemble the book best seller list not including the Bible.
I will, however, enter my Sugar as the most inquisitive equine as she will investigate anything new and bring so many smiles to my face I think it will crack one day.

I hauled a roll of hay in on a utility into the pasture and as soon as the roll came off Sugar began investigating the trailer. I heard a stomping sound and figured she was kicking it to see if it was alive. I turned around and she decided it was her new transportation. DW got a pic as I was trying to convince her to turn around and get off.

If the first time wasn't enough, I catch her going up again and had to stop her in the second pic. Guess she liked being taller than the others for a change...

Thanks AlexS. She is the most curious of creatures. Like a puppy having to play with everything to see what makes it tick. I truly get the feeling she will be an amazing trail horse as I have yet to find anything that will spook her.

I don't know if I told this story yet or not, but it turns out she loves turtles. As seen in some of my photos my pond runs right by the pasture. Apparently one of the snapping turtles, about 10" across the shell, was making his way to/from our pond via the pasture. She saw it and decided to check it out. I saw her nudging something out there and wasn't sure what it was so I went to see to make sure it wasn't a snake. After seeing the turtle I stayed back to watch what she would do. She would gently nudge it with a hoof and then smell it again until it tuck it's head in.

After a few minutes the other horses started coming over to check it out and this is where she shows her feelings for turtles. She refused to let any of them get anywhere near the turtle as in biting, kicking and swinging her head at them to keep them away. Once the turtle finally got to the fence and out of her/their reach the other horses walked away. She stood there at the fence watching it go in the pond and looked all over trying to see it. Took all of a half hour before she left that fence waiting on it to come back. Every so often I'll see her standing at the fence looking over in the pond as if shes hoping it will come back out to play with her.
