I've got one, but not a good horse w/ a bad day one, although I've got plenty of those too. This was awhile ago, but.... I hadn't shown my horse in over 4 yrs (we took a break to try other things & we were both burned out). Anyway, we were at a show & I had him tied to the trailer, nothing new, but he was acting like a complete moron! Pawing, pacing, the whole nine yards. Well it just so happened that my daughter started walking right before the show, and we couldn't get her to sit still either. Needless to say, I thought my husband was watching her, and he thought I was. It didn't help she could escape from the kid corral we had along. After we both did the "do you have her? No, I thought you had her" bit, I see her out off the corner of my eye standing UNDERNEATH my horse petting him in the spot on his belly that he absolutely HATES being touched. So obviously we start to panic when we realize he is standing perfectly still, bending around and rubbing her with nose trying to gently push her away. Well she fell down between his back legs. And the way she fell actually pushed his hocks out (kinds like being bow-legged), so you know it had to be hurting him. But he did not move a muscle! Not even a tail swish to get the flies until we got her out from under him. And to this day, he will be the biggest, most stubborn, pain in the a**, but when my kids are with him he is their guard dog.
