My heart horse was fine with the Civil War reenactors and the cannons they were shooting off when we went riding in Gettysburg, but black cattle and minis were apparently fanged, clawed, horse eating monsters in disguise!

as are the tree roots of doom, the rare invisible alberta anacondas that slither silently through the grass(only equines can see them) and dogs in the bushes, AKA Soul Sucking Swamp Monster of Doom.

I'm pretty sure my two year old would be fine with a bomb going off, but small children??? Yeesh, run for the hills!!

I hear ya on the cattle, Speed Racer When I first brought Indie home, she had never seen a cow before. The poor little thing would stop dead in her tracks and just freeze like a cougar was staring her in the eye.

Thankfully we live across the street from some cattle, so that fear got resolved fairly quickly.

Poor Conny never got over his fear of black cattle. Any other color didn't even get a snort, but those black ones always turned him into a frothy, hysterical mess!

He was suspicious of small ponies too, since they're short and kinda look like minis. I found that especially hilarious, since he was pony sized himself at 14.1 h!

I don't blame em on the pony part, sometimes even I think they're instruments of the devil

Don't forget llama's.... Indie is quite sure the local llama is planning to kill all of us and steal her precious grain.

You know why ponies are evil? Because they're short and thus closer to Hell!

It's not going to be the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, it's going to be the Four Ponymen!

We live in close earshot of a quarry where they're always using dynamite to blast rock - also gets used as a firing range so ours dont even flinch any more, DH was driving our old tractor through them last week and it kept backfiring - they didnt even look up
BUT
Stephen King killer crows that sit on the menage fence and stare - Oh no
These are not the same sort of crows that peck around their feet in the field - these are evil crows

Not alone they aren't, but in bands! A band of teeth flashing, blood thirsty mini's!

Think like a horse.
Or at least, our pansy horses

There is nothing that will "bomb proof" a horse like living on a dairy farm. My horse Jack is not scared of anything because he's been exposed to it all. Tractors, cows, kids, dogs, plastic bags, guns, you name it. After having a high strung off the track TB I love having a horse that I can do anything with and not have to worry about him making a show of it.
