Lexi doesn't really like deer. Even if she sees them far away in the distance, she gets spooky. She's been better at it lately, thankfully. She used to be afraid of the bicycles but now she's fine with them.
Shad doesn't like:
Cattle (particularly one cow on its own)
Bushes (clumps of them...could be scary animals inside :roll: )
Other horses (not scared of them.. just excited)
Lines on roads (paint)
Dead animals e.g. Road kill
I think that's it. If I think of more I will add them
Oddie is afraid of nothing. Good old steady needy, he is
We used to have a young pony that had some kind of pathological fear of wheelbarrows, which made no sense because she saw them every day and I'm sure none of them ever attacked her. We just got her over that and then she met a PUSHCHAIR, which is like a wheelbarrow WITH A ROOF. Sent her little mind in a loop, that did.
Draumsýn(horse im riding) has only been "afraid" of one thing! We once saw a cat on the road, and she just wouldnīt go forward until it was off ! She didnīt spook or anything she just stopped ! She isnīt afraid of bunies or dogs or anything like that...
Silly mare :roll:
Deer, ruffed grouse, chainsaws, signs (sometimes), logs (one trail we ride on has a small log pile, like firewood, we must move as far away as possible while staring at logs with big eyes), wooden benches, water last year, not so much this year, I'm sure there's more. It really depends on the day.
