    My horse is a goober!

    Just wanted to share what happened this evening during my ride. My gelding loves nothing more than to have his neck scratched (well, okay, he loves food more! But anyways!) Tonight was the first time I have ridden him in almost a week. He is only five and can be fresh when he has had a couple of days off....so I wasn't expecting greatness. However, I also wasn't expecting him to stop in the middle of our ride, stretch his neck way down and rub his neck up and down against the reins! He was giving himself a neck scratch at my expense! Wouldn't back, wouldn't go forward, pressure on the bit was no bother, same with heels in side!!! He just wanted to stand there and rub his neck on the reins! I tried to pull reins off his neck so it wouldn't be enjoyable....no good! He stretched his neck down further to hold the reins taut against his neck!
    What a goober!

    He does have a great personality! He had my instructor and me laughing SO hard while he was scratching! He is always coming up with something crazy!
    Here's another goober story: The place where I board him got timothy hay recently which he really doesn't care for, he would prefer to have coastal. My friend buys her own coastal to feed to her horses, and was taking some to them in the next pasture over from my guy's when he spied her. He started calling to her like he was saying, "Hey lady! Bring some of that good stuff this way!" I should mention he has NEVER called to her before. She told him to bug off and gave the coastal to her horses. She said what happened next was too funny for words. He walked over to his fresh timothy he had just gotten not even a half an hour before, stretched out over it, looked back at her several times to make she was watching, and peed on it! She was certain he did it to show her what he thought of his own hay!

    I have decided that it wouldn't be a bad idea to buy a barn video camera to keep handy for his classy moments!
