My barrel horse thinks his pasture buddy (mare) is the scariest thing ever! Other than that, he can handle anything!

I used to board my horse at a small stable that also kept goats, and when he first moved there his stall was directly across from the goat pen. Not sure he was happy about it, but if he was ever afraid of goats before that, he had no choice but to cure himself of any goat-fears.

Just this past week my husband's horse spooked and I couldn't figure out why at first till I saw it for myself. A wild turkey hiding under a tree, then it made a run for it right in front of us. Haven't encountered the wild turkeys in a while so it kinda flipped her out a bit. We had a little chuckle as Jade isn't a big fan of birds.

My mare despises water. She's just a little princess. She'll contuine on when you ask - but it's always a jump. She can never simply walk through the dang water. I'm sure she would if I was more persistent, but it really isn't that big of an issue for me personally. Other than her aversion to water I can't think of a single thing she's really had an issue with. I joke she's not "all there" because there have definitely been things that give me a little jump, whereas she has zero reaction. Weirdo.

Really mine are only afraid of the food growing legs and fleeing while we're away from the barn on our adventure.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

TJ is pretty solid and doesn' seem to be scared of much. The only thing that has made him spook was a shopping cart left on the side of the trail. apparently it was going to come alive and eat him.

The scariest thing my horses have seen in a long time is one of those fabric tunnels that kids crawl through. My daughter pulled it out of the bed of the pick-up, and Queen was positive it was going to eat her. The other thing they don't like is the farrir stand. Big tin building that is open on 2 ends. Wind goes right through it, and kind of rattles the tin.

I love where I board. My horses are now used to guns, cannons, bugles, tractors, mules, wagons, men yelling at the tops of their lungs, trains, planes, and helicopters. Also have foxes, dogs, cats, coyotes, and rattlenakes. Gotta love boarding next to the 1st Cav Horse Detachment.

Logan is terrified of mares when we are competing in the "Rope Race." If it us and a mare left, I know we're done lol! Otherwise he isn't scared of anything I can recollect.

Fi isn't scared of much, she startles, but checks it out. However, after getting hung up on a tarp that's her new scary item.
