    I think this is for what your pet peeves with YOUR horse are...not over what other people do that makes you angry...

    My biggest pet peeve with Mercedes is she has it in her head that whenever we go into the arena, it's time to drop and roll. It's crazy! If I try to lunge her without letting her roll first she'll start bending her knees while trotting!
    Needless to say we are working on that...no rewards until AFTER lol :-p

    Oh, and like BluMagic, trying to graze while being led! Ugghh

    First off if it said only with your horse why would people be saying that all their pet peeves aren't only with their horse??? But I also agree with Tara.

    Oddie:

    When I've decided he's getting too many treats and turn him back out without one...and then he pulls that 'puppy dog' face and I feel so meeean.
    When he stands on my toes. And I'm sure he does it on purpose. He always stands there STARING and I just know he's laughng inside.
    The way he flings his head around with teeth bared whenever you reach to do his girth up. And yes, it IS just bad manners.
    He drinks, holds it in his mouth and then flings it everywhere! But only when people stand near him...
    He's so desperate to get to food (he's starved, you see :roll:) he will pull someone over just to reach an unattended bucket that MIGHT have feed in.

    What I do like:
    He always poops in one tidy corner of his stable.
    He takes care of my boyfriend who can't ride.
    He's never actually bitten anyone when you do up his girth (ok, he bit a dog once, but it was more like the labrador RAN into his mouth while it was open...)
    The way he always has to lick his teeth for 10 minutes after every time he eats (it's SO cute, like he's trying to get every last bit of flavour...never seen a horse do it before)


    Daisy (now sold):

    If you poked/pushed her to move over, she would ALWAYS move towards the pressure. Unless you shouted at her. I'm sure she just did it to be funny.
    If you gave her a bucket of water, she would tip it all over the yard.
    She never wanted to go back out in the field, and would stand by the gate looking sad and making me feel bad.
    She would scrape the ground for attention. And she KNEW it was naughty.

    What I do like:
    She would follow me round the field without any feed or leadrope.
    Whe you were grooming her, she would reach round and gently snuffle you back.
    If you left a brush on the floor, she would chew it, and then pick it up and brush the wall with it.
    Whe you were on her and stood still, she would stretch round and snuffle your toes, before looking at you as if to say 'whatcha doin up there mum?'

    Faith -
    When she says she wants a cuddle, all puppy dog eyes ears pricked etc, then when you go to give her a pat she pins her ears back and tells you to rack off!!

    She will always stop as if going to poop, when walking to the arena. She never does

    I used to have a horse that I was quite convinced, shied at faries! He'd be quite happy tootling around on the arena and then suddenly thee would be a grain of sand out of place that was just way too scary. He would even shy at his own poo when we rode around it

    When Cocoa decides to wipe her mouth, full of rice bran mash, all over me.

    When Angel puts her head up so I can't bridle her.

    Amen! I think everyone should brag about there horses. Horses are amazing animals and if you have a horse it's something special! Have pride in your friends with 4 hooves! Hehe

    Yes, and I'm sure that there are some ugly ones that are shown that every single beholder can agree on that that beauty is not much of a beauty.

    Personally, I think people shouldn't brag about their horses because their horse isn't the best first off and unless your the best, why brag? And even if you are the best, why brag? It's obnoxious.

    When you love something, you are proud of it... ugly or beautiful... the best show horse or just a pasture pet.

    Well said Kim
    I brag on Vida all the time because I love her and I think she's a great horse. I love to hear other people talk about their horses too bragging or otherwise, that's why I'm here on the HF :)
