    One of my horses used to flip out any time someone opened a chip bag. Really funny part was, the chips IN the bag were her favorite treat (and yes she was an Arab, wink,wink)

    Odie was afraid of white cats and chickens for awhile when he was younger

    Dally is just scared of herself

    I have a "special" gelding, would be much more difficult to find something he wasn't terrified of.

    Yesterday, it was his new water trough.... yup, a big ol' scary, horse-eating water trough. Spent a good half hour, blowing, snorting and running in circles, then stood as far back as possible and giraffe necked to see what exactly was in it and slowly progressed to tasting the water and finally just decided to start chewing it up.

    I had a trail horse that spooked at absolutely nothing. You just couldn't spook this horse until one day she decided the yellow concrete post marking the end of the irrigation ditch was SCARY! The same yellow post we rode past every.single.day!

    My horse spooked at the tulips today in his pasture. Even though he's walked by them every day as they've grown the last week or two.

    As soon as I hit the ground, my mare stopped spooking. She planted her feet, and lowered her head so I could grab her mane for a 'leg up'. Then, she walked calmy beside me, stopping whenever she felt my footing slip a bit.
    That's a good horse :)

    My mare can be unpredictable like that on occasion, "bless her heart"! :)

    Blue doors.

    I have no idea why, but anytime I ride past a blue door, Kitty has to spook. It may not be big but she'll do it. It's particularly difficult considering two of the three doors in the arena are blue....
