    Well I guess that stall walls (and walls in general) are always in the same place... but... I have a problem with walking into them.

    Always gives my siblings and coworkers a good laugh.

    Really? It's the doors and gates that get me..I mean they just pop out of nowhere! Lol. I was brining my mare out of the fence (which is hotwire and shocks very bad! Haha) and she suddenly stopped like "Uh, no." So I was trying to get her excited and ended up getting tangled in the fence...NOT fun, lots of shocking :( Lol...Although what makes it funny is that Brandy had her ears up the whole time...The little turd was enjoying it!

    Oh it's any stationary object that gets me... walls, doors, poles, chairs, gates, door jams... and pretty much anything else!

    And I do believe that horses (and cows) love watching us beating up ourselves! LOL!

    I'd have to agree with that! Haha. Brandy stepped on my toe and almost broke it yesterday, then she went and smelled it, then looked pleased with herself like "Yea, I did that. Awesome!"

    When I was a teenager, many moons ago, we lived next to a junk yard fenced with an electric fence that had billy goats in there at night to ward off people looking for the midnight discount.
    My brother and I always tried to get the goat to come to the fence so we could pet him, not knowing about the wire being hot at the time. The goat would come closer so we got closer to the fence until he was just out of reach. I being the oldest proceeded to grab said hot wire to reach over to pet the goat.

    You could almost instantly see a smile come across the goat as if to say "STOOOPIID" .

    When I was a child, we have one very muddy spring. I was walking from the pasture to the barn with my horse. I literally got stuck in the mud. I stepped with the deep part so my horse could be on higher ground. I was mid-calf in mud. I could not lift my foot out of the mud. I stood there struggling for a good 10 minutes trying to get out. Finally the BO looked out to check on me, saw I was stuck. She came out to get my horse. Then came back lifted me out of my boot, carried me back to the barn and then went back out for my boot. Yes, I felt like an idiot.

    My stupid story happened recently. I was playing with my dog in the arena and as she ran around the corner I had the bright idea to jump out and scare her. Well, I had no idea how fast she was running and she hit me right at my kneecaps I flew up in the air and landed half on her and half on the concrete aisle with her trying to lick my face. I couldn't bear weight on my right knee for almost three weeks! Yes, I felt very stupid but at the same time it was funny. My only regret is that no one was out there with a video camera! I'm sure we could have won America's funniest home videos
    And to top it off every time I retold the story people looked at me like I was crazy. Finally I got to where I would wear my knee brace under my clothes and try not to limp so I wouldn't get questioned

    This one's not all that funny, but no one at my barn seems to lead the their horse with a halter and lead. They let them run out of their stall, open up the gates, and let them run into their paddocks themselves. Instead of going from point A to point B, however, the horses like to go to point B, Q, 7, and Blue before going to point B. And then they do the same when it's dinner time. It really irritates me when I have Henny tied up in front of his stall to groom him. Nothing would stop one of the horses from going after tied up Henny with me standing right next to him.

    And now for a funny one. In January, it rained almost every. Single. Day. We were up to our calves in the stickiest mud at the horses. My friend and I were feeding in the dark with just a small flashlight. My friend ended up getting stuck, wearing my mud boots which are two sizes too big for her, and LOST HER(MY) BOOT IN THE MUD. So she was standing on one leg screaming at me so I have to make my way through the sticky mud and by the time I get to her she's about ready to fall over. So now she's clinging onto me as I search through the freaking mud in the dark to find her boot. I found it and helped her put it on. Too bad it got some mud in the boot.

    And quite a few years ago when we were at our old place, my friend Debbie rented out the pasture next to us. Her goats ended up slipping through the fence into our pasture one day. Our mare Princess decided to play Rodeo Roundup and was herding the goats!! One of the funniest things I've ever seen.
