Bloo- he is the greatest horse on earth although he does have his quirks. If I scratch him and stop but he wants more he won't leave me alone. He poops in his water like it's in door plumbing like he doesn't poop on the ground anymore just in his water. He will push me out of the way or he'll attack a horse if I'm leading him and it is rude to me, which I have started to work out of him. He'll work himself into a lather if his lead mare is taken from him. He doesn't stand tied, if I tie him to something he'll either pace or he'll untie himself but he won't go anywhere maybe a step over at most. It almost seems like he's offended that I think I need to tie him so he shows me he doesn't need it. The worst thing is that he only rolls after I've given him full bath, not when I hose him down or he's sweaty only after I've put the effort into getting him clean. I've tried keeping him in a stall or on the cross ties until he dries so it's not as bad, but I've never had a bath keep him clean for longer than it took him to dry.
Little Foot- he will take anything lying around and play with it like it's no ones business, hoses, pitchforks, brushes, clothing, tack, anything he can get in his mouth he'll play with. He is also a notorious pick pocket and if he gets your wallet you'd better pray there's no money in it because he will literally eat it cigarettes too, he loves those. He likes to knock over the wheel barrow and pee in the mess or he'll protect it like you're stealing his treasure. He also refuses to let me spray him with fly spray but will play with the bottle till kingdom come even if he accidentally sprays it himself.
They are more quirks that used to be cute but now that I've had them so long they're just annoying. Other people love it and tend to laugh when they 'act out' while I've learned to deal with it.
