That's funny about the stick. My mom's horse and sister's horse used to sword fight with sticks. Funniest danged thing I ever saw. We lived in the woods and there were six horses total, but these two were the only ones to play with sticks. They'd pick them up in their mouths then try to knock them out of each other's face like a couple of kids. :roll:
Lol, I ended up finding a couple of sticks and offered it to a few horses. I found the paso I'm riding now loves it, along with the paso baby we have at our barn the stalls are connected and the two horses fight over the one stick. I then toook the stick to myke and I swear if he could talk he would have said. "what the heck are you doing with a dumb stick!!!" but Mykes friend (one of our TB took high intrest in the stick and was holding it in his mouth moving it up and down, Then myke started taking intrest in it, but looked more scared of it and trying to gain courage by walking up too it. The sticks are way fun to finding fun ways to amuse you and your horse!
