Bicycles, but yet a hare can leap out from literally UNDERNEATH him, and he doesn't give so much as a jump?

Quillay - white rocks at the roadside.
Minina - semis, but only ones coming from in front.
Canelo - donkeys. Mules are fine, donkeys are evil.
Luna - used to be most things. Now, emus and armadillos. Anything scurrying...

OMG, that is the best! LOL! I had a dog that jumped bc she farted! That is so funny!

My gelding didnt realize for almost four whole minutes that we had stopped on a concrete pathway that wasnt black top.... I sat there on him talking to my friends and enjoying the view at the park when I saw him look down at his feet and see that he was standing on white concrete! OMG! Of course scary! So he went STRAIGHT in the air! My riding buddy behind me said all his feet where running in the air, and when he came back down they were still moving but his body wsant going anywhere! LOL!

I found out mine are not gun shy, well atleast not airsoft gun shy, the other day. i was shooting snakes in the pond with the M4 assault air rifle and happen to look at 4 of them standing at the fence looking at me as if trying to figure out what I'm doing.

Trusty, the newest addition was enjoying having the round bale all to himself and could care less about the racket..lol

Booboo is scared of large sections of visqueen flapping around him.
Jems is scared of sudden large movements close to her head.
Little Man and Sugar are both curious George's. They investigate everything that is foreign to them before deciding if it is scary.

Trusty is still new, but is always alert and a little figity since he has been left in the paddock for the last year. I'll be working that out of him between now and summer since he will be my main rider.
