Top 10 Spookey Things

Top 10 Spookey Things from a Horse's Point of View

10. Blowing Paper:
"At any moment it could whip up into our faces, covering our noses. We could suffocate. And don't try to tell us you'd do CPR."

9. Barking Dogs:
"What? You've never read Steven King's CUJO?"

8. Puddles of Water:
"Quicksand."

7. Trash Cans:
"They've been known to swallow horses and transport them into another dimension."

6. Babies and Li'l Kids:
"Long lost tribe of horse-eating pygmies."

5. Plaid Horse Blankets:
"Hey, when was the last time you wore plaid? It adds 100 lbs."

4. Ropes and Hoses on the Ground:
"Dreaded North American Trail Snakes."

3. Ponies:
"Cute, cleaver, hardy. They want to take over the world."

2. Windy Days:
"Two Words: impending tornado."

1. Carts and Wagons:
"Look. You put a human on our backs, we can always buck them off. But hitching a horse to a wheeled object? It's just not right."

More to add:

Shadows:
"There IS something stalking me!!! PROOF!"

Squirrels:
"Look at them! They are full of furry evilness!!"

Water:
"Obviously very scary!"

Mud:
"It is going to make me get stuck. I will then be stuck forever while my friends leave me. As I am stuck I will obviously be attacked by a pack of coyotes."

Tarps:
"NOTHING that makes that much noise can possibly be safe"

Cell phones ringing:
"Its like horror music, it makes scary situations worse."

** Don't be the rider who gallops all night and never sees the horse that is beneath him **
