Well... About a month ago a very scary, very intimidating creature moved to our ranch along with a very nice little Quarter Horse mare (both belonging to my very close friend) This creature (We will call "it" Killer as it is incredibly ferocious with an unebbing hunger for horse flesh and blood...) is known for attacking and murdering many a harmless equine and disposing of their bodies in the pond behind the ranch.

One day, when Cricket (AKA unsuspecting victim...) came back from a long day of cow chasing, Killer saw her moment of attack and took it. Cricket freaked, practically peed herself, and went off into a frenzy of fart riddled bucks. After realizing that Killer was safely restrained behind bars, (THANK THE LORD, who knows what could have happened if she was LOOSE?) We then made a hasty retreat, sulking, with wounded egos. Cricket hasn't been the same since her near death encounter.


We met our foe once more on even turf. She didn't seem so scary this time :lol:





Hahahaha I don't think Cricket realizes that she's about five times Twinkle Toes's size. Hahaha. :wink:

Payback, this time, is for real.

Okay I just loved your post...
Too funny how the horses will freak out over other 4 legged creatures.

My gelding Tiny had a serious meltdown over a miniture Burro. The first time he freaked over it I had to look around and figure out what he was tripping out on.

The the little guy was recently moved near my gelding before he moved to pasture and then he was finally able to get over the little guy.

I love the sheep. The shot of your horse sniffing noses with it is priceless...
Halfpass.

Thanks, Halfpass!!

Isn't it hilarious how horses freak at the most innocent things? I mean, Bunnies, Deer, Lambs, Squirrels, to us our just cute fuzzie little creatures. But to horses they are blood thirsty savages whose paths must NEVER be crossed. It cracks me up.

Love your burro story. There used to be a BLM burro at the ranch I came from. She was free range and kept the coyotes off the property. She was an amazing little girl... I miss her alot.

Ah, the arch-enemy of self respecting horses everywhere, a sheep. Lacey and I had an encounter with a sheep the other day... It was a very large, very fluffy sheep. I'm sure you can imagine Lacey's reaction when it started running towards us... Yeah, not so fun. =P

I love the way you tell stories! You should do so more often. Heehee

I love the picture of Cricket sniffing the sheep's butt. The others make me chuckle but that one kills me. Rofl!

"but mom, the dogs that visit say that this is how you say hello." :p

I like those pics too! I agree that you are good at making an event sound like a story :)

I love how things like that scare horses. We have one mare that we can't convince her that this little black mini isn't trying to eat her.
