Sorry I kept thinking of things, lol... I was walking my green horse past the fire department when he saw his reflection in the big window he whinnied SO LOUD and made a you turn. I slowed him up and stopped him and talked to him, but he kept making this soft whinny and looked at me like MOM< THERE WAS A HORSE IN THERE I SAW IT!

Had another day where we stopped off a trail at a gazebo and was enjoying the view when after 5 minutes he finally looked down and realized the sidewalk was WHITE! OMG! So he went straight in the air! My friend behind me said his feet where just running and he wasnt going anywhere, lol!

There was a girl on here tha said her horse is scared of farts, even it's own, LOL.

And there was another story I heard on here was a girl buying a horse said the horse was 14 hands, but she didnt know how big the guys (who was selling it) hands was, lol....

Trusty got spooked by a parrot calling from under a carport on our ride yesterday. Refused to go past the house forward so I made him go past the house in reverse. Funneh how that works.

Wheaternay, those are so funny! I am guffawing out my breakfast onto the table!

We can't ride on the sidewalk. It's White!

How many hands tall is my horse? I don't know. It depends on how big your hands are.

I'm giving him a week off because the animal communicator told me he needs some time to himself.

The bucking's nothing to do with saddle fit, it's because his shakras aren't aligned. That's what the saddle salesman told me.

Horses don't need to be taught what to do, they know already because they have evolved to be ridden by man.

He bit you because you gave him bad vibes and scared him. It's not his fault.

You must ignore her bad behaviour today because she has PMT and can't help herself.

We can't jump that fence because the pink plastic flowers are too scary......my horse only likes fence decorations in muted Autumnal shades.

I love hacking out, but I can't today because it's too sunny and he will get too hot. Nor tomorrow because it will be raining and he will get wet. Nor the day after either because I think it will be windy, and my horse is scared of the noise of wind. Next week's no good because the grass is growing and he'll be too fresh. Not the week after because then he'll be carrying too much weight and I don't want to put too much strain on his legs. Not next month because the ground will be too hard and might cause concussion injuries. Nor the rest of the year because the mud will be too deep. What a shame because I love to hack out.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

We can't jump that fence, becasue the flowers are pink, and my mare is an "autumn". (referring back to that trends where you were a "season" for your colors, remember?)

The hacking out one is great!!!!

He's not scared of sheep, he lives in a field with sheep.... but yeah, he'll be scared of DIFFERENT sheep, because their accents are weird. And you never know when one might have mutated into a horse-eating monster...
