Funniest horse stories? Please tell!
Hey everyone i want to hear your funniest horse stories! I have two for you guys.
A horse named buddy who i ride once in a while was let loose on the ranch during a barbeque(No worries the gate was locked) He was running around having fun. All of a sudden i look over and he sticks his head in my families trucck reaches into my moms purse and pulls her wallet out and takes off with it! It was the funniest thing i ever seen. :lol:
Next i had my new puppy and my lab in the creek at my other ranch, my mare starlight was on the other side of the creek grazing. The puppies were playing tug of war when all of a sudden starlight farted(You know horses lol) and both the dogs dropped the toy and looked at starlight like "what the..." she looked at them like "That wasnt me!" I laughed for like 10 minutes.
Now i want to hear your stories, add other pet stories to!
How about one horse lunging another ...... a couple of my geldings were playing "tug of war" with a jolly ball and the next thing I know one is doing perfect pivots over his hocks while the other is running perfect circles around him. They never did let go of the ball and kept it up for about five minutes. I was laughing so hard I couldn't find the camera!
I have a 20 year old appaloosa mare thats very herd bound. We moved her away from the borders and she was not happy because she didnt have any friends. The neighbor down the road has quite a few horses that roam around the pasture and she was always whinnying to them and chatting with them.
We go back to the barn to feed her at about 3:30pm. As were nearing our house i see a horse in a field trotting toward the mans house that has horses.The horse looked a lot like Indy. We pull in our driveway and i head out to the barn to grain her. Shes gone. I start freaking out, get in the car and go to start looking for her. Next thing i see is a really tall guy riding Indy down the road.(Keep in mind that Indy's 13.2 Hh The guy had to be at least 6'5) I pull over and there's Indy with this huge man on top of her. I feel relieved but also kinda puzzled.
It turns out Indy ended up trotting down the road, through a large field and back up the road to the mans house. He said he came out to feed and Indy was running around playing with his horses jolly ball!
Funniest thing she's ever done. Shes a crazy horse.:-)
I got one my mom told me. When she started riding her mare Magic around more, we lived across from a popular lake for fishing. Well my mom was riding back towards home after a good long ride. Well good old Magic let out one heck of a loud fart, and it echoed around the lake. My mom could hear the fisherman snickering and giggling, so she hollers 'excuse me'. OMG she was so embarrassed, she also couldn't stop laughing. One of her best memories with her beloved mare of 24 years.
I got another one too, and of course good old Magic is involved too. Well, my mom decided to ride in the local parade that year, i had my gelding Rowdy, and of course her on Magic. Well you know how people throw candy to little kids. Yeah, so we're riding down the road in the parade, and Magic of course just had to stop and pee, right in front of a bunch of kids, and a whole lot of candy!! She even grunted and farted when she was finished, i swear she must have relieved about 5 gallon of urine on the road. Meanwhile Rowdy and i are still walking along, and i'm laughing so hard i almost fell off. And i hear my mom giggling and saying sorry to the kids. It was an epic moment....
Elizabeth I can't stop laughing, been there done that. My dear departed mother in her younger years always wore a rubber girdle and it always went on first thing in the morning. Being a smoker she'd frequently fa...pass gas and the girdle would turn it into a long drawn out sound. Years later my big gelding was grazing and I was walking past about 20' away. He began to pass gas and I started laughing "mother, you've come back as a horse and I own him". This same horse was in the pasture with three others. A small blue plastic tarp had blown into the field. He walked over sniffed it then picked it up. The others immediately took flight. Not wanting be be left behind he took off at the gallop to catch up still holding this madly flapping tarp. Again the others took off and he continued to try to catch up. He gave up and dropped the tarp. The others moved closer. Then he had an AHA moment and with a twinkle in his eye he grapped the tarp and raced toward the others and watched them scatter. He turned this into a wonderful game in which he was in control. This must have lasted a good 20 min.
OMG cant stop laughing great stories! wish more people would post lol.
I can remember I think I was about 6 or 7 years old Dad was working around the barn grooming the horses and just cleaning things up I wanted to ride so he saddled the Stud for me because that was the first one he groomed. Well I was riding him around the little field behind the barn.After a little while Daddy had turned 3 of the mares out there also. with me on his back the stud mounted one of the mares so I yelled at my Dad look at me I'm riding two horses at the same time and when I look around my Dad is bent over double laughing his head off.
One time I was grooming Santana, and he was being his normal grumpy self and flicking his tail at my face. So I grabbed his tail, and turned his head to look at me, looked between me and his tail for a minute, then snatched the brush and his tail at the same time. we had a potential boarder coming out and looking around, and she just kept laughing, and laughing. Now, if I pull Santana's tail to his shoulder, he'll snatch whatever I have in my hands.
One story that comes to mind is of a haflinger I had. He got loose and didn't want to be caught. He took off for the neighbor's and next thing I know he was stomping up their porch steps. Neighbor opens their door with a WTH? look on their face. Toby kept trying to look around the person to see inside.
Another one was Apache our draft cross when he was about 2. I was out in the field working on something and he was at the top of the hill. All of a sudden I hear WHOMP WHOMP WHOMP. I look around and all the horses are peacefully grazing and Apache is just standing there. I go back to what I was doing but it wasn't long before I heard it again. This time I turn to see its Apache high-stepping and slamming down those draft hooves of his.
For the life of me I could not figure out what he was doing and this time he continued to do it. His back legs stayed pretty much planted but those front legs were lifted high and slammed down and sometimes at pretty odd angles. I was starting to think he was losing it or trying to break out new dance moves.
I huff and puff up the hill to get to him quickly to find a bot fly buzzing around and he was intent on stomping it!
