Exclamation Weird horse habits.

What are some weird habits that your horse has?

Mine won't let me bridle her unless I give her at least a minute or 2 to stretch her mouth. So I have to stand there with her halter around her neck, bridle in hand, and wait for her to finish stretching. It's funny and cute.

Teeth Grinding

One of my horses will sometimes grind her teeth -- just for a second -- when she sees me walking to the barn to feed the mini herd.

Baby, my eight month QH foal, enjoys eating people's hats. It is very strange. Even if you are wearing a bright pink top hat, she will try to eat it.

my stallion slams gates closed while I am in the empty stall trying to clean them. I guess that shows what he thinks of me!

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!

My TB has ice plant ground cover planted behind his stall. He pulls off chunks of it, dips it into his water bucket, then slings the plant around in the air. Weird. :oP
