Charlie-incapable of staying clean! if there is a single turd or a single glob of mud he will find it and add it to his coat....oh and he keeps rubbing his mane out!

Josie-shes terribly mean about trying to buck me off when i ride bareback

Red- is a clutz and has THE MOST uncomfortable trot when your riding bareback (mister boney back)

Sugar- is just plain mean. shell try to sneak in a bite wherever she can...but then shell turn around and be your BFF

Snickers is so mouthy that he often harms the belongings of other people if I'm not around to prevent it, for example, he will by all means push a saddle in the mud if it will be left in the tie up area by the paddock and he's near enough to do it.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

My biggest problem with Denny is that he is very hot and chargey under saddle but I can't hold that against him. After all, I made him that way. But it's okay, he's retired from riding now so the only time I ride him is when I go to catch him up for the farrier. If we're more than a few steps from the gait, I'll swing up bareback and let him carry me back to the barn. I can manage his energy for short rides like that.

That's really the only thing I can think of that really bothers me about any of my horses.

Well, Rafe will drag the hose out of the water tank if I don't pay attention but that's just him LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Bo is hard to catch, can be a pain sometimes but I work around it. Biggest problem is the spook twitches.

My only real qualms with my guys are with my senior. I can't stand his buddy-sourness and his cribbing habit. He has 24/7 access from his stall to the main pasture and would rather sit inside and crib than go outside and eat

I can't stand a horse who leads you, rubs, hunts his food, bad with feet.....

Well JJ is all the above and it drives me CRAZY!! I am the Nazi when it comes to manners and such. He leads me no matter how much I get after him he keeps coming back for more and I'm not nice about it lol. When you get done riding he try's to rub and gets popped multiple times and comes back for more. When you feed him he hunts his food which drives me crazy....he freaks out in stalls where he can't stick his head out, he is an ass for the farrier.

He is just a cocky ass who thinks his poo don't stink lol...and like I said I am a freak about manners and such so this is like somebody who hates dirty things being stuck in a filthy room.

Lucky use to always have me worried she was going to kick someone/something. I was always afraid that she'd either hurt herself or whatever/whoever it was that she hit.

Sweet Thing: I hate that she's buddy sour..There's only one pasture, so no changing fields..but I am working on it, we're down to 5 minutes of spazzing and then an angel with a job. I also hate that she constantly tried to put her face to either of her front legs to the middle of a trail ride, I almost got tugged right I've her shoulders. If we're standing, go right ahead, but NOT if we're working.

Dude: He reared..While we fixed it eventually, I was soo tired of not being able to back him because he'd go flying into the air. I also hated that he had to lunge forward a thousand feet if you went from a halt to a canter/run. I can understand a bit of lunging, but not like he was jumping a 4' oxer, lol.

Fancy: she had the death glare...she really did. I have never seen a horse that looked that demented, and she took the cake, no question about it. While she was stubborn and supposedly went bronc if it didnt go her way, she didn't seem like she was psychotic..until she looked you in the eye.

Tunie: She'd grab the bit and run like she did when she was on the track. I took her to a show for some reason, and during my Calcutta thread the needle class..took out all 3 cones and went to the fence with me hauling and jerking on the reins in a wonderbit as soon as I realised she wasn't trying to run to a pattern anymore.

I'm only riding Sweet Thing now, but I miss all the others, even with their
