Never think your anti-social three year old is really that interested in being petted in the middle of eating his hay.
Never think your lawn tractor is faster than your horses.
Never tie the rope closing off pasture from paddock durning feeding time to high, or three-year will crawl under it. Never tie it to low, or he will jump it. (rescue will then proceed to wander away from his feed)
Never expect your hay-focused horse to notice your there, then walk up and say 'Hi!'. May result in horse-heart-attack.
Never sit on your horse wondering 'what's that noise coming down the road?' Remove horse far from road....or horse will remove itself, with or without you.
Never think 'Aw, he won't go over there and bother him' during feeding time.
That cute little bumble bee is not cute.
Diving into the tack room from said bumble bee is never a good idea.
The barn will not move out of the way for your lawn tractor.
Chasing a horse with a halter only results in a tired owner, never a tired horse.
No matter how long you walk them, the horse will roll at the first possible opportunity. Do not tell yourself he won't.
Horseshoes and sneakers do not go hand in hand.
Do not assume your horse will be okay with having ticks picked off his butt.
Never assume there is no one around when doing something questionable. Like...picking ticks off your horses butt.
Halter breaking is never easy. No matter how cute the horse is!
