haha horses are great comedians!
I have a mare that stands on everything, she loves taking empty water troughs and standing on them, she scares the crap outta me when she stands on the bars of gates, she'll do that instead of pawing like any other horse I guess.
She stands on buckets when she wants feed, luckily it holds her weight.

We ran out of grain for a few days for our yearlings one week. They thought that was the worst torture you could ever inflict on a little horse. Dad went up to their barn to fix something while they were out, and the gray colt picked up a grain bag and took it to my dad. Dad waved him away and didn't think anything of it until the filly walked over, picked up the grain bag and took it to him. The hint was very clear.

I actually wasn't there to see it, but apparently my girl had a large pigeon sitting on her forehead one day.

My gelding Sonny likes to play in his water bucket and gaurd his filth. Yes, gaurd it. When we're at a fair and i'm cleaning out his stall he'll look back, see where i'm going to clean and then step that way so i can't.

Also Nik and Sonny don't really care for plastic bags, cause you know they eat horses and what not, and they tend to run away from them. Well it was really windy one day this past fall and my dad said that they were running around and the wind blew this plastic bag onto Nik's butt (he has a fairly big booty cause he's a shorter haffie) and he was running around with this plastic bag stuck to his butt and then when the wind died off enough for it to fall off, he stoped and just strutted away like, eh that didn't bother me a bit.
They'll also do that when the neighbor kids go sledding in the snow (there is a little hill above their pasture) and they'll walk up their all tough and then one will slide down and they'll take off down and then hide behind each other while looking up at the kids. Then they'll do it all over again lol! : P

I evented a little QH gelding who was so smart it was scarey (much smarter than his owner). He could jump ANYTHING!

I hunted and his owner tried to ride him at the hunt. When he would drink at the pond, he would drop and roll every time. Being the trainer, I was convinced I could keep him from doing that. I know the signs of rolling, right?

I hunted him and we got to the pond. I was waiting for the telltail signs, and he knew it. Without so much as a flick of the ears.....he was down and over. I laughed so hard. He got me!

Then came the formal opening hunt. I was riding Scottie. We get to the pond (mind you, I am in formal wear). I decide to take bets from the field. If he rolls, you give my 5.00. If he doesn't I give you 10.00. Remember, he has NEVER failed to roll! I get plenty of takers, as they want to be amused.

We walk in and I wait.....and wait.....and wait. I am convinced that he KNOWS I want him to roll this time. He just stands there for the first time EVER!! Everyone is laughing (and getting ready to collect a lot of money!

Disgusted, I turn him to walk out of the pond. He squeals, tosses his head and drops and rolls. THANK GOODNESS! I was gonna be broke.

Good boy, Scottie!!

This is the notorious little guy;




BTW, don't mind the longer right stirrup...I was riding with a broken leg and I couldn't flex my ankle much so it needed to be longer. Not the most fun I have had at a show....
