Thanks! And, if I look for long enough, I start seeing some similarities - a red halter would really suit me!

No hay available?

Lol well I was grooming and I gave her a carrot then when I went to pick her hooves, I let her smell the pick and she started biting it. It was in her mouth up to the bristles until I pulled it out. She was very reluctant to give it up. My horse is special.

LOL! Yup, I've got one of those "special" horses too! Never a dull moment.

How about Pumpkin learning how to use a lunge whip? He takes it by the handle and shakes the end at me.

lol, Pumpkinz, Snickers does the same and I just had to teach him follow my movements with a whip in his teeth, so that it looks like he's lunging me. It all started when he was a lesson horse and a girl was going to do some groundwork with him, but she was really too hard with her whip and didn't improve. One moment, when she put the whip on the ground and turned to talk to somebody, Snickers grabbed the whip in his teeth and chased the girl around the arena! He was very clear about him having enough of the lame groundwork the girl tried to do with him.

Hahaha that's awesome! Pumpkin picks up on tricks if he sees it done enough. He can open our shed to the hay and chicken seed, go in and shut himself inside, ninja style.

Once I was standing inside it, he saw me, and re-shut it before walking away. The brat!

Pretty fun! lol, ninja-style horse. I recently moved Snickers to another barn, and there it was only a matter of hours until he learned how to open his stall and how to switch the lights in the barn on or off. The barn hands informed me that he had to go and see, why were the lights on in the hay storage in the middle of the night - and of course, Snickers was there, along with his favourite buddy, whom he had also let out of his stall.
His stall is being tied shut since then. I wouldn't want him to wander into the grain storage and help himself like this.
