He did NOT! just do that!

I thought it would be fun to create a thread based on those awesome but fully crazy stories of silly things our horses did.

It was my first time out in pasture, if you can call 500+ acres, pasture. I was sitting in the back of a pick up truck with a bag full of carrots. It was probably my third or fourth time around horses. I had the bag sitting next to me in the back and would feed whoever came over to me. This white horse, who I never did figure out his name (There were over 100 horses out there) came sneaking over, looked right at me, snatched up the entire bag in his teeth, and took off galloping as fast as he could. You could just see the glee in his eye. The even funnier part is that since there was a hole in the top where I would reach in to take a carrot out, as he is running you can just see carrot after carrot flying out of the bag! So by the time he stopped he had nothing but plastic all to himself! Hahahaha!

And the moral is, kids, don't be greedy!

~He knows when you're happy
~He knows when you're comfortable
~And he always knows when you have carrots.

My sister had a 16.3 hand 3/4 Percheron 1/4 QH bay gelding who LOVED mares! He had his special girlfriend Foxy, the breeding stock APHA, and then he flirted with all the others (Foxy would get extremely jealous, and go over and kick/bite the other mare). We had just gotten back from a ride and were going to lead the horses into the barn to untack. Miguel (Mugel) got all spooked and was walking along with his neck all arched and snorting, making the mares and fillies stay behind him. Ellie took the opportunity to jump and 'boo'. Miguel jumped and jerked back, then he realized that it was Ellie that spooked him and he got all embarrassed, hung his head and went into the barn no fuss. He kind of hid his face from Foxy while we were untacking. LOL! He was such a show off, and was so funny when he got tricked.

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

The thing I cannot get over that my gelding does is, he will stand by the gate for us to come get him, and there are times (not always) he will walk out into the deepest mud and just stand there. I am like REALLY!? Oh Hell no!

I was cleaning an automatic water'er and as always Burt was there to help. From "helpfully" removing my hat, you know so I can see better. To carrying the hammer to a more helpful location like the middle of the pasture. Burt is my go to "helper" horse or more often my "get the ^%$^ away" as I push, shove and slap her away. She never lets my less then positive feedback keep her away for long. So, I am cleaning this water'er and I have this long screw to put the top back on. Burt is monkeying around with another section of the water device so I ignored her. Burt had previously picked the screw up and fooled with it. I took it out of her mouth and sent her firmly away. She had of course returned and I could either get the task done OR spend every 5 minutes chasing her away. So when she returned and was an apparently suitable distance from the area of interest I said "meh, fine be there". This was my first mistake. I learned it was a mistake when I heard this "plunk". I looked around but could not see the long screw. I knew it was missing but I could not figure out where it went. I looked over the device, around the sides, felt every nook and cranny inside, Burt did not have it in her mouth. It was lost. Then I looked down this very long tube that is about 4 inches wide and goes down probably 6 feet into the ground. There was the long screw. I looked over at Burt who looked at me. The expression on her face "hmmm, thats quite a pickle you are in and I have NOOO clue how it got down there". I managed to get the top on the device, and went to the hardware store to find a long screw.

Oh my.. a couple of weeks ago I decided to lunge my 3,5yo Dubai in the outdoor school. The front is flooded but the back is okay.. wasn't going to be a hard work out but it's nice and deep out there so he has to work.

He worked a dream. So, I take his kit off so he can have a mooch. This is the LAZIEST baby you have ever met, so I wasn't expecting the YEEHA that came next. He went crazy.

So, I tried to slow him down. It's pretty wet outside and the back leads on to the hacking routes.. if he broke free, he'd have gone!

He slows down..

Gets to the top...

Comes round.. and wipes out! Legs go completely from under him.

I laughed. And laughed. Then thought oh burger.. my horse! He gets up.. he's dark brown.. on one side.. grey on the other, mouth full of sand, and wanders over to me in a complete daze!

Then he got a nice cold hosing whilst my coach and I laughed ourselves in to the floor xD

You know how most horses spook at flapping bags and such? Well, one evening this fall I was out with my friend doing the evening feed. I'd just emptied a new 50 lb bag of something into a barrel, and was standing by the feedroom door holding the empty bag, talking to my friend who's mixing feed buckets, when I feel a little tugging on the bag. Turn to look, and there's Ellie with her entire head and neck stuck in the empty bag, calmly trying to lick up the few grains left in it.

Bag: I gave an empty feed bag to my colts to play with. Sharik picked it up, shook it, wouldn't let go, started running, big 100lb feed bag covering his face completely, he kept running, scaring off everybody, except his buddy. His mom was the most rattled of the herd, it took half a day to convince her it was her son, not a crackling, flapping, horse-eating monster....

3 year old OTTB, all excited about his feed coming, started running in circles in his stall, got more and more wound up, smacked chest first, head and neck straight up, in the wall. I open the door, ask him what he thought he was doing, he came over, head lowered, very guilty look on his face and pressed his face against me " sorry mom, that was stupid, don't tell anybody paleeeeeeeeeese"....... had me rolling all day
