Jubilee my horse Stitch has done that too me too!

The countless number of things he has done to me :) lol but i love him

1. We were at a show over the summer and it had started to sprinkle during the class before us but the went ahead with our class so im in the ring trotting around and all of a sudden he flops on his side with me on him as soon as he started to go down i flipped my foot out of the stirrup and and got off he rolled right in the middle of my western pleasure class with my show saddle and all my tack. When he was done he just stood up and looked around and had to have been thinking "why is everyone staring at me?"

2. When i did all the training on him i wanted him to move of the slightest pressure of my leg, well he does taht and is great but now if i have someone who is a beginner rider come out and ride and they use too much leg on him he will lift his back foot up and kick them in the back of the calf!!! Doesnt matter what hes doing, walking, troting or loping he has done it

When my horse eats he picks up his right foreleg and will press it against his body. Then he'll act like he's going to put it down but will keep it against him.

I was desensitizing him one day and I had put some feed bags on the ground so we could practice walking over a "tarp". He was fine when I led him over it so I started riding him over it. The first time he went over it he stopped directly on the bags and started to paw at them. All the bags were messed up before he continued over them. He was fine with walking over the bags for the rest of the lesson.

I don't consider it strange, but, T has a habit of lifting her front leg when she eats her feed.

Well, one day on a club trail ride we were all resting in saddle in a field and T kept lifting her front leg. I knew she wanted to graze. Everyone around me thought it was quite strange. Go figure.

The only thing I have seen Cobalt do which I thought was cute was him stretch. He stretched his front legs in front of him and lowered his chest all the way down to the ground, the same type of stretch you see dogs do when they get up from a nap. I thought it was quite funny. Only see minis do it

The strangest thing Toby has done was about a year ago now. we had stopped by the farm after one of my uncles party that we went to and my BF had come with us. well i had gotten out of the van first and i went into the little guys pasture because there was a new gate to Tobys pasture. Anyways.... Toby and them came up from the back pasture and Toby came running up the pasture with his ear pinned back and mouth open and snapped at my boyfriend. he was so shocked. all i could is laugh because Toby loves everyone just not Kevin i guess. but it was strange and funny at the same time.

12 days until Twiztid ( i get to see my Jamie) then two months until graduation.
