Own a Horse? Come share your experiences!

I've just recently bought a horse I have been leasing. His name is Starsky, he is a 16 year old Tennessee Walker//QH gelding. He's 16.1 hh and so very gentle. He's an ex-police horse and very calm! I can put a leafblower near him, that's working, and he'll basically fall asleep.

He'll do this funny thing where he'll almost "dance" when he's happy. His ears will be all relaxed, he'll start to do his cute trot, and he'll sway his head happily. My trainer and I went on a trail ride and she noticed what he was doing. It was absolutely adorable!

So, why don't y'all share your experiences and share with us a little (or a lot) about your horse! And if you don't own a horse, share some funny horsey experiences!

(I am such a proud mama of my Starsky. Just had to put that out there. xD)

I meant to post on this but I forgot to.

I was riding one of our geldings, Ghost, during the winter. The ditches were full of snow and my wife's horse loves going thru deep snow. I followed her into the ditch and we sank. Ghost did a face plant into the snow. Funny thing was that he didn't pull his head out. He sat there with his head in the snow for quite a few seconds. Finally, he does pull it out and looks around like "What the heck just happened?"

What? No photos?!!

Just last night my husband was feeding out horses (I'm not allowed at the barn...foot surgery) and my mare was eating. Well, our bull comes towards her and she snakes her head around to her tail and gives him the "mare stare", he backs off and she resumes eating! My husband couldn't believe her head was all the way around to her butt.
