    hehe, me too. Except I call my 16.2 gelding a pony. I agree, with the term of endearment. He is VERY CLEARLY NOT a pony, but sometimes I say, "Good Pony!" or "Bad Pony-Toby!!!-stop eating mom's scarf!!!! She's turning blue!!!"(not really, although once that did happen-he pulled on her scarf and it tightened around his neck, but we are working on breaking him of that habit)

    So anyways, sometimes I call my HUGE (at least to me) horse a pony. It's fun

    People who don't keep their children under control at the barn.

    I've had this problem with both horsey and non-horsey parents. The non-horsey ones seem to always think horses are quiet and gentle and one-size-fits-all. I've had people let their kids walk right up to my horses and pet them without even asking.

    It's even worse when the kids are brats. V doesn't like children, and I had this one kid run up to him and start crawling around between his legs. I had to drag the little rodent out from under him several times because his mother wouldn't make him behave. The worst part? The mother was a "horse expert" with a lifetime of experience.

    KEEP YOUR SPAWN ON A LEASH OR LEAVE THEM AT HOME, PLEASE.

    Another thing that bugs me is when non-horse people think horses are "Really dumb" I've been getting that allot lately it seems. I'm like "Where do you get off on that claim?" I get "well don't they have really tiny brains?" and "IDK I just heard, they are"
    For starters no there not, Horses despite they brain size are really intelligent animals, even more so then people(sorry just they way I feel in this case). Follow by "Have you ever been involved in a horses life or spent time with them?" Answers are "no" to "I've been horse back riding once"

    Other then that its the bad rep Mares have, NO there not evil moody witches! I have three and been around mostly mares nearly my entire 33 year old life. I find mares to be the better calmer then there male counterparts. Even when there in full blown heat, They just get more lovey dovey and really cuddly and nuzzel me alot. IDK why mares just seem to like me, maybe cause I'm male?? Who knows!

    Oh my god 3Paint!!! Yes! Especially the dumb thing! I just keep my mouth shut now because I don't want to put up with their ignorance and stupidity. Since its not a human, it's not smart, right? My mare has turned into a man hater since my dad tried to ride her, lol!

    I went to a saddle fitting with my mom, she had surgery on her wrist and I had to saddle up the horse etc. This lady had a mare who hated men, I didn't know it at the time nor did the mare appear to me to hate men cause I was petting her head, neck and she stood perfect during the whole saddle fitting. I found out when her owner came out shocked that she let me near her.(She was begin held by a female barn helper.) She stated she Hated men even more so with hats on. Apparently she was abused by several men in her past and rough handled. She even called her husband over to see and she didn't care for him swished her tail, etc. Yet with me calm as can be. This was one of just several occasions were mares didn't like guys, yet I got along with them just fine. IDK why, maybe I'm just calm soft handed and soft spoken, an maybe they can sense than an the fact that I'm a mare lover would be my best guess. I always seen to get along really well and have really, really strong bonds with mares all my equine affiliated life.

    One thing that pisses me off...is when people tell me that my horse is spoiled. My brother is a non-horse person. I was walking my gelding behind our house when my grandma opened the sliding screen door and it squeaked really loudly, then slammed shut. My horse spooked when he heard it, and I had to calm him down. My brother was like "that horse is spoiled". How in the world is he spoiled just because he spooked?
    The next day, I was trying to load my horse into the trailer. I had to get my brother to help me, because Lakota was being stubborn and decided he forgot how to get in there. It pissed my brother off, and he just huffed and said "that horse is just worthless. I don't know why in the hell he's still here."
    He's not spoiled and he's not worthless. Sometimes horses have their bad days, just like humans. They're not robots that do whatever you want when you want it.
    It kind of hurts my feelings when my brother calls my horse spoiled or worthless, simply because I've poured my heart and soul into this horse for almost 4 years and I shed a lot of blood, sweat and tears during the process. *sigh*..I finally got that off my chest.
