Cows. Particularly when they start making noises and walking towards us while we're standing still. I'll have to see how he does this year on trails that go by cows since he now lives next door to some. Posted via Mobile Device
My husbands gelding is good with cars, trucks, vans, suvs, tractors, quads, motorcycles, etc, but a semi goes by and holy crap, its barreling down on him and he better run whatever direction to get away! Posted via Mobile Device
When we first got my sisters gelding, I was riding him and she was riding a green mare trail/town riding, and there was a train headed are way. A last secound descision was to get off the horses and stand by when the train was going by. Well I got half way off and he bolted. My foot got caught in stirrup and was dragged about 50 er so yards. Luckly wasnt hurt any, well my sides did from laughing so hard when we realised I was ok. I farted leaves for a week lol
My mare is scared of "stranger cows".... I mean this horse has been raised, plays with, and herds cows since she was born and is 5 this April.... take her to a penning show and the different cows TERRIFIED her! I think it was bc they had big horns, those weirdos, lol (longhorns).... Idk.... it was hilarious though, lol...
LOL! If you want to get them over plastic bags, measure your feed into a wal-mart sack, then dump in their bucket in front of them. (works with trash bags too) Now instead of riding out their spook you have to ride them hard past one, mmmm LUNCH!
Yesterday I transferred some chickens to a coop inside my pasture. Three MAD Roosters stuffed into a very large dog crate... Thought YES great training exercise! They didn't even spook. All three calmly walked over and checked out the ruckus, no big deal mom!
But wear hunter orange anywhere near the pasture and Rick has a heart attack.
Horses aren't even supposed to SEE orange!
