Mines afraid of an invisible monster. I can't figure out what it is, but I know where it lives... same spot every time, rain or shine... have no idea what or where it is... It has to be invisible....

HOW ABOUTarmadillos?

This thread is very helpful as we are learning about horses and getting ready to get more serious for our 10 year old who loves them but does not KNOW them.

My cousin has a black mare Princess... in Alabama... who is Scared out of her mind by ARMADILLOS. It doesn't matter if they are dead or alive. So, now it has gone to white plastic bags that LOOK like armadillos to her. She stops and does the big eyes stare.

I can't say I blame her. I don't like to be surprised by them either... the armadillos.. not the plastic bags.

The horse I owned before wasn't really afraid of anything special. The only thing she really jumped for once was when we rode along a golf-field. I just had to laugh when she started looking at them like they were something that was going to kill her.

And the horse I leased wasn't afraid of anything either. But he used to decide to get scared by something, just to check how I would react :)

Back in the day when I used to ride Cocoa, we would have to cross a road to get to the other side of the trails.
She was afraid of the yellow and white lines in the roads. She would JUMP over them. Haha

LOL....Poptart! Imagine what she would have done if she saw the whole tree!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
