    Harry - Wow this is really hard, he is as near to perfect as a horse can get <3. Except he won't flipping let me clip his ears, and in Harrys case those big fluffy untamed ears are growing legs. Think I might have to knock him out to clip them lol!

    I don't own a horse but I'll join in anyways!

    Skippy (current lease horse): Spooky! Girth sour and has thwarted all of my attempts to cure it. He has gotten a bit better, though.

    Lucky: Hot. Girth sour. Didn't stand well to be groomed.

    Diamond: Would try to rip the reins our of your hands. Really loved trying to wander into the middle of the arena. Very hard to get going.

    Circe: One second she would be sweet and the next she'd be trying to take a chunk out of you. I never could figure that horse out but for some reason a lot of people loved us together. And her trot...so Western, but in an annoying way! (No offense to Western people, her trot was magnificent for sitting, but for posting...argh! Made me want to tear my hair out).

    Those are just a few that I ride/rode frequently.

    And of course, horses with bad manners always make me irritated! Especially:

    *The horses who you have to form a strategy to be able to lead them. You know the ones. "Oh, I'll just circle!" You say....sometimes it works out...others...
    *Horses that try to eat while I'm leading them (with bridle on) or riding them.

    My old gelding thinks its funny to tear up water troughs. I am on number 3 since April. He also eats his feed and washes his mouth out in his water bucket after every bite. Gross. The pony rolls every chance he gets, even tries while tied. Nicki the yearlong, poops in her water bucket, nd the 2 yr old has no common sense.

    Gypsy hates her face being clipped. We have worked on it long and hard and she still hates it !
    I have never actually clipped her face, she will barely let me touch her with the clippers when they are on...

    im not giving up though...

    Redwing thinks that for some reason she must always take of the fly mask.And it oddly keeps ending up I almost the same spot where theres nothing she could take it of with? Hahah
    Serenity is a butt scratch addict. You try to groom her tail and she starts swaying side to side scratching her butt
    on you.
    Horse are very wierd and have a crazy personality(:

    Ooh charlie will back up to his feeder and take a dump....every day....and then I have to clean it before I can put his grain in....Red and Charlie take turns ripping off their fly masks, Charlies on fly mask #3 since may. Sugar takes pleasure in trotting up and down the aisle for the entire 45 min it takes to clean and feed..just to hear her hoofs clomp on the mat. Josie makes a show of walking to her inside stall and putting her nose in the corner when I go to get her out, then turns her head and trys to rub on me like im her favorite person in the world.

    Dragon steals my ball cap. If I don't have a ball cap on, he pulls my hair!

    Bert - steals tools when I repair fencing. Hammers, nails or my hat. Then stands next to me looking like she is no where near clever enough to do that.
    Mr. Vacation - resistance to going in circles and random hissy fits over known behaviors ie. Loading in the trailer.
    Harry - loosing control on the lunge line. Its something we are working on but I feel like its a basic skill he should have after as much professional "training" he has had.
    Any horse, not loading easily into the trailer. It just ticks me off so bad and I don't know why. Also, I hate seeing white scar hairs on horses girths or withers it means bad fitting equipment which is such an easy fix. To me, it means someone just did not pay attention. So that's sort of a pet peeve but its not really the horses fault.

    He loves to be a typical man and do everything for me. I mean COME on, I know how to steer! When he steers it's like he's drunk and only does circles ahaha.. ohh it's great for beginners.. cause he just takes them on this elaborate course.

    He tries to butter me up when he knows he messed up. Nickering and licking my palms is his favourite. It doesn't work on me, but it makes other people melt.

    He always... freaking.. knocks.. my glasses off........ I agree I look better without them but OMG I CANNOT SEE WITHOUT THEM!!! Sheesh :P And sometimes he nuzzles my hair when I'm sitting down like he's messing it up on purpose (cause I braid his hair to make him girly)

    He always poops when you go to pick out his back feet. So you either have to stop and clean it up or handle poopy covered back hooves haha.

    But man I love him. He drives me crazy but I love everything about him. He's got such personality.

    Buttercup- had I be lead up to the gate at our last contesting show or else she wouldn't go in, but once she got there, she was great

    Comet- will do anything he can possibly think of to put holes in his sleezy and likes to put both of his front legs on the wrong side of the bar in the trailer just because he can
