awww that is such a cute quirk!! Sounds adorable
What are peeps? what do they look like?My gelding loves to bit the heads off peeps. I don't know why but every time I give him a peep (which is his favorite treat) He bites the head off first then eats the body, even if I turn it upside down.
Awww a kiss! that is funny. My horses aren't fond of kisses....Every morning Sky puts her head over her stall while I am untying her hay net for a kiss or two then goes back to eating. She wrings her mouth anytime she is bored, annoyed, confused etc has done it since she was a yearling it is annoying most of the time but it is her.
Cricket is a head shaker when she isn't getting her way or is confused. She will lipinzaner leap if you ask her to stand around at an event currently, if you keep her walking she is totally fine though( Iam hoping we will grow out of this with time). After every ride when I step off she checks in by putting her face to my chest.
The TB gelding I sold would back up to you n matter where you were (tied/untied) and demand butt scratches. If you ignored him he would just lean into you.
Wow! That is handy! I guess that he gets his mouth muscles limber... and helps put in the bit. I wonder if he doensn't like it clanking on his teeth and so opens his mouth.Don't know if this would be considered a 'quirk', but it's sorta' handy. If I'm going to ride, as soon as I pick up our horse's bridle he starts yawning... Doesn't do it before or afterwards... It's very handy to be able to pop in his bit and not bang his teeth.
lOl your horse sure is a character!! holding something for you! Sounds super handy if it isn't food... if it is down the hatch it goes!my geldings quirks:
- chasing any moving thing, cats, chickens, cars, trucks, even if a truck drives by the pasture, he’ll be right beside it chasing it.
he’s very fond of golf carts, tractors and mowers, by far his favorite. But he only likes tractors if they’re moving, sitting still he is not a fan.
-getting into absolutely anything. like they say, curiosity kills the cat lol, his curiosity is not in his favor sometimes
- biting EVERYTHING! I don’t know what it is, if it’s a lunge whip, the mower, the pitch fork, me (yep we’re working on that)
Sometimes it’s helpful, once I had my hands full when walking him so I asked him to hold something and he very gently took it and then he gave it back once I asked for it, he’s like my little tool box, maybe I trust him too much, but he always knows the different between food or brush LOL.
- rubbing against you constantly or leaning his butt against you, he demands for scratchies.
- his top lip. When he’s excited, or even when I fuss at him, he drops his front lip extremely far, he already has an overbite so he kinda looks like an elephant when he’s doing it, I don’t know why, it’s something he does.
but when he’s bored he will just move his top lip around.
- sticking his tongue out whenever he drinks water, it’s just so cute!
that’s all I can think of right now!
I find this picture extremely funny, him trying to grab the pitchfork, I call this “baby whale” or “baby beaver”
When I see this picture I always say “no teef!?”

lol you gotta tie him with an impossible knot!! that he can't untie
Skip unties anything and everything, or at least attempts it. He’s a serious escape artist if I’m not paying attention. He’s also kind enough to untie all his friends.

Do you have pics of her?She is 5 this year I have owned her since she was a year and a half
I do love nice tails myself. But I don't have a tail bag or really want to put on on my horses, I don't think that I will show any of my current horses so.... You might try mane and tail detangler if her mane or tail gets tangled.She has so much hair if I do not braid her mane it is knotted and or in the summer she sweats under it. Her tail, well simply put I am obsessive over nice tails so to keep them clean, neat and growing healthy looking they are kept in a tail bag.
lol ok!! It is a hilarious pic though....For a second I thought you were testing us... That really made me laugh when that picture came up!
