    Although he has his herdbound issues, he is pretty stable with noise and objects. Really loud Harleys spook him though. As they drive by they seem to give an extra blast on the throttle to deliberately spook horses on the side of the road.

    Other than that my horse will spook if he farts loud. Seriously.

    Generally, I would say plastic bags, birds flying out of weeds, dust devils, sudden gusts of wind when there's trees near them.

    My stallion uses farts as a deadly weapon.

    LOL, horses are weirdo's sometimes. Dobe is fine with plastic bags by themselves and fine with kids by themselves, but you put a plastic bag in the hand of a kid and he believes Satan himself has come up from hell to drag him back down there by his ears .

    Yep, it is funny to see from the ground. If he wasn't as broke as he is, I would be nervous about it in the saddle. His head goes up as far as it will, he kinda swells up and seems to make himself as big as possible, and has a tendency to freeze. Better that than tucking tail and running like he used to though LOL.

    Top ten things horses spook at......NO. 10 anything you moved more than 2 feet. 9 anything around your riding arena if the wind has picked up 10kts. 8 a door closing
    7 a door opening (thats worse because someone has walked through! 6 Jackrabbits (if your not from the west I'm sure it is cottontails! 5 car door slamming (I know this because at almost every horseshow my horse hears a car door slam!
    4. If you do dressage it is definitely the judge and where they are sitting. (I think they sense my fear there)
    3. Something they have seen a thousand times but you are showing off to you friends.
    2. Your spouse or boyfriend I think they are just messing with them. 1. Anything plastic...they know it is an evil invention by man.

    Maybe he is just running from the smell but when he drops a bomb darts ahead and does a funny little kick. He's such a funny creature sometimes.
