I can never keep him clean...after he is hosed down he runs out into the mud lot and rolls immediately and gets up, shakes, looks at me and then runs to the grass pasture with all of his buddies. And since his left side of his face is all white, it is impossible to keep that side of his face clean....he likes to smash his face/eye into the mud while rolling. So annoying!

He also will roll and rub his fly mask off after I put him into pasture which drives me crazy...I have 5 for him and every few days I have to walk through a million acres to find them all.

Mine sweats like crazy, gets himself beat up in the field by annoying other horses incessantly, and LOVES to play in the bur bushes (I have a picture someone took where he literally looks like a unicorn).

In the summer my horse gets quite bothered by flies to the point where when her reins or lead rope rests against her skin she just twitches like crazy! This doesn't happen in the winter, and it's only during the summer months when the flies are horrendous. I think it's just cause she's anticipating it being a fly but it is quite frustrating while riding :P

I could write a novel about the stuff Cally does that I could seriously live without... She's been lovingly nicknamed "The Cow" at the barn because when she gets pushy she gets PUSHY. Big solid 16hh warmblood that was never taught great ground manners & doesn't seem interested in learning them any time soon.

-> Dragging her head out of my hands to go rub on something when the bridle goes ON & then jerking/bobbing her head while I try to strap it up.

-> Acting like fly spray is liquid nitrogen and it BURNS. This starts the prance away fly spray dance.

-> She's SUPER girthy and I've tried everything to make it easier on her but when she feels it even remotely tighten she pins her ears back, grabs the crossties, & rips at both of them. She doesn't do this when girthing in the arena.

Yet would I ever get rid of this mare? No lol. We've been working on a healthy respect of space & ground manners. Having raised Dani since 6mos & comparing her to Cally has given me a healthy dose of appreciation for my little mare. Plus she's turning around to be a wonderful little mount. The only thing I wish she hadn't started doing - running away from me in the pasture.

Whenever I brush his butt he drops his penis and waggles it at me. It's a tiny bit embarrassing, especially when people pass by. Giant horse dong is really hard to miss even all the way from the road.

If I'm alone I don't care, since I consider the behavior to be harmless. I just ignore it, or take the opportunity to check for a bean if no one is around to watch. However, when I have company out at the pasture that I'm trying to hold a conversation with things become very awkward. Their eyes are inevitably drawn to his nether regions, which he considerately unrolls for them to admire. Then they have to pretend that they are not looking at it while their eyes flick back and forth between his penis and my face.

I could also post this in the awesome things about my horse thread.
