One cold winter/spring day my owner came to get me. She hadn't come to see me in a long time, and really missed me, but instead of walking up to me she made me come to her. After about 10mins I gave in and happily came to see her. I'm not taken out of my pasture that often, so when she took me out everything was scary, and then she made me walk between a building and a big contraption on four round legs (wheels). We got through that eventually, and I relaxed enough to be brushed outside. Then, I saw it....
In the round pen where all the new horses go for the first week of their arrival there was this big beast. It had four legs, a mane, and most of a tail. It had an enormous head with ears that were just as big, and to make matters worse, it was taller than me!!!! It was red/white (roan) in colour. I was super scared yet so intrigued by it's funkiness that I couldn't decide wether I wanted to run away or go investigate it! My owner had her hands full with me while she laughed at my 'funny' indecision.
She finally brought me back to my pasture (after brushing me) where I could relax with my friends, and the next time she saw me the funky creature and I were happily sharing a field together :)

What, may you ask, was so scary yet intriguing to my silly little filly? A Belgian mule.. Of all things xD

We were out on a march one day, through the forest I knew so well. I sauntered along, confident, while my trail partner and brother spooked at this and that. I laughed at his skittishness. *I* wasn't that bad. *I* knew that that tree stump was just a tree stump. There wasn't even any mole hills, which would have warranted a mad gallop of terror into the fields. Everything was good.

But then it happened. He missed the ONE THING that he SHOULD have been concerned about. I saw it, thankfully, after he plodded over it without even so much as a second glance! How could he be so callous!

I stopped. I stared. She couldn't REALLY want me to WALK on that... Could she? It was obviously some kind of.. Some kind of horse killer! Flat, white, and oddly geometric... It laid in wait, across the paved walking path that I'd crossed many times before. I just KNEW it was going to come after me - something that reflective CAN'T be safe.

My obviously crazy owner pushed me forward. I refused, telling her in a squeal of the horror that laid in wait. She didn't listen! So I put my head as close to the ground as possible, giving it my best angry eyes. A good solid snort or two to keep it in place. And I danced around it, never taking my eyes off of it, even backing a few steps down the trail on the other side, before turning off at a quick trot. I kept looking back, making sure it wasn't coming after us. It wasn't... Thank the horse gods. And my owner doesn't even care that I saved us from certain death.

(She was POSITIVE that the white crosswalk paint was going to try something. Just positive. Coming back the other way was just as fun)
