Nico - He scrapes his bedding away from where his feed pan is, so he can throw his grain out of his bowl and onto the ground to see whats on the bottom, which is just MORE GRAIN. This drives me crazy. And I cant use a corner feeder with him for this reason. and if I hang a bucket he flips the feed out even if it takes him an hour to figure it out. Same thing happens w/hay. I cant just put it out because he digs to the bottom of the pile. I have to use hay bags or my feeders.

Platinum - Rubs her face on me when Im tacking and untacking. And she has the most shrill annoying voice Ive ever heard for a POA.

Freckles - no complaints. shes my heart horse and does nothing to irritate me.

Okay, here goes.

Jonah: He has to be the gassiest thing around. Brush his hind end or pick up his hinds and you hear pfffffffttttttttt. Under saddle it's pthbbb.... pthbbbb.... pthbbbb.

Flame: He's a diva. ASB, bright chestnut and can do no wrong in youngest DD's eyes. Behaves perfectly for her, but doesn't particularly like anyone else.

Joey: He's a soda thief. Enough said.

Mare: She is sweet to people but is absolute hell on the geldings. Half the time you look out the window and she looks like a deranged serial killer on crack.

Flame: He's just a goober. Hides behind me if the mare looks at him wrong.

Lookit looks pissed off almost all the time. He's trying to convey that he'd rather be eating. I should tell him to put that frown upside down! He also tries to untie himself and his buddies when they're tied up. He hasn't succeeded....Yet

Reading these I will add one more about Magic. I only have two knots I can use on her that she can't untie everything else she can figure out if given enough time. She jumps over 5 feet so all of her fences have to be high or she has to be tied out. She can also unsnap clips and slide open bars all of her fencing actually has to have a lock on it to keep her in it. I just found a chain with a small enough snap she can't get open (yet) that I switched too.

Not only does she set herself free she then goes about setting everyone else free as well. When she use to be stabled (not at my house) I would get the dreaded call about once a month "Your horse did it again" And my answer 'Did you catch everyone or do I need to come down.' Yup that's why she got the double latched chained and locked gate and was put in the stallion pen (6 foot fences) away from all the other horses. Ironically she will put herself away or come to you as soon as you call her. It was the havoc the other horses did that was always the problem. This isn't a pet peeve anymore cause she is with me and she can only set loose Mia who wouldn't leave the yard on her own to save her life.

Rick - Grinds his teeth on METAL! He's not a cribber, but tie him to a trailer or stand on the other side of a metal gate when he's loose and expect the hair to raise on the back of your neck and your toes to curl!
He's also not fond of men, strangers, and scared to death of water hoses.

Cowboy - Complete puppy dog, but it gets annoying when I'm out in the pasture. He follows me step for step, I've accidentally bumped into him several times because he's silent and I forget he's there!
He also takes a daily bath in the pond, then rolls covering himself in mud. I've given up, he's a tan/yellow/grey horse.

Dash - She's just fat. Like me she gains weight when she breathes.

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

My horse treats his stall like a litter box. He has to cover everything up so I have to "search" for poop! He also poops in his feed trough...sigh.

Nutmegg, will on occassion walk away from you when you try to catch him. He also is a brat to load in the horse trailer. He tries to get out of getting in it. So i make him work and very un-fun to be outside. Then he'll jump right in. Oh...and leaving a horse show, he cant wait to load up! Ass.

Chilly, can be ditzy. She will on occassion strike at you while in the pasture. The 99% rest of the time, shes a total love and in your pocket. She gets her ass beat when she does it.

Jasper, has the worst canter ever! Its so unbalanced and uncoordinated. Poor guy.

Avalanche, wont stand still for batheing. She dances and moves and turns her head and lips you. Which results in an elbow to the mouth.

Skip - he doesn't like being the lead horse, and my moms gelding can really influence him. If Tahoe is nervous, Skip starts to get a little nervous, but I can normally get him under control.

Ruby - she is so mare-like it's horrible. She is lovey-dovey one second and a grumpy, moody beast the next. She is also only about 13hh, and I always wished she was about 14.2+hh. I know I shouldn't be put off by size, but I feel too big to ride her.

Karma - she is hard to catch, and super lazy.

Tahoe - I feel that everyone has at least one horse that they can't get along with, and mine is Tahoe. Some moments he is my best buddy, the next he is trying to bite me, push me around, or being an overall jerk. He is nasty to every other horse, and is a horrible ride. But, he is my moms guy and always has an excuse for something. He dances around when being washed, doesn't stand to be mounted, is super herd bound, and doesn't stand still. Ever.

Honey - she believes that she is 20hh, not 10.2hh. She also nips Skip a lot, and leaves little bite marks on his butt.

(I guess you guys can tell Tahoe and I don't get along lol. He has caused countless fights between my mom and my dad or me.)

I happily cannot think of a single thing I don't like about my horse. Just wish he wouldn't change from a cute dark bay to burnt orange in the summer.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

Lol. The grinding teeth on metal made me think of the one thing I don't like about freckles. She chews on the poly water trough. But she drags her teeth along sideways and little plastic twistie slivers come off in the water!
