Talking Whats the funniest thing your horse has done?

I know my horse can be a real hoot, he loves goofing off.

- If you've seen Mr. Ed the tv show from the 60's, you'll get the picture.
My horse didn't like my old BO at all, and one day this girl kept talking and talking as she stood by the pasture back to the horses. This went on for 10 minutes and my horse started mocking her and pretending to talk by moving his lips. Of course I burst out laughing and she got mad for not knowing what was so funny. I've never seen my horse do that since.

- I got new skid boots to try on my horse, and I know he never had them on in his life. My new BO told me to go throw him in the arena to walk/run and get use to them. Oh was his walk hilarious, it was like those dogs with boots on their feet. He would raise his hoof so high look like a dog trying to pee and tried walking with one leg in the air. Then he had to put it down to move the other leg. Same thing. He got use to them finally.

I have way too many to write down, but these are most recent.

To many really good ones with my gelding I have now but the one that sticks out in my head is that he is more like a dog then a horse! When he was a weanling and I got him I thought it would be really cute to teach him things and one of the things I thought was cute (i was only 13) was to teach him how to drink from a pop can/bottle. Well now you can't leave anything around him because he will take it a drink it. He is like a dog in the way that he wants to eat anything your eating, a sandwich, french fires he wants it, then if he doesn't like it he sticks his lip up high and squeals :) There is a picture of it in my album on my profile page

Lillie sticks her tongue out when she gets a drink of water. It's like she is holding the water in her mouth. I thought maybe all horses did it..but Lyric and Comanche and the thoroughbreds don't do it. So it's seems to be a Lillie thing. I absolutely adore watching her drink water. It's the cutest thing ever!

Paul sniffs my backside when I clean his hooves. He also tries to lean on me with all his weight when I am doing that. I have to keep pushing back and saying "i am not your support post!"

He also likes to play chase with me in the arena before I ride him. I'll chase him around and then he'll chase me.

The first time we put shipping boots on my old gelding he did the same thing with his legs - one at a time and raised them SUPER high with every step. So funny!

My horse scout got injured a couple years ago & I had to soak his LF in a bucket of ice water [brrr] twice a day. He HATED it, of course ! After a couple weeks he got sick of it & would take his leg out & pee right into the bucket ! It was sooo funny. After that I just cold hosed bc the whole bucket thing wasnt working out too well for us =P
