Horses

Horses are scared of only 2 things. Things that move, and things that don't move! :D

Dad came home the other day and said the horses were out. :roll:

I figured he meant the ones in the pasture and they were on the hiway.

Well it was a mare and a couple colts in the corral that jumped/broke the fence. All I can figure was the cats got to fighting in the loft and a bale got pushed down. There is a gate across the barn door so they saw this and spooked. After I got them in they still didn't want to go past the door as the bale was still sitting there. :? :D

So, then, that means Jodywy's list of things horses are afraid of should read as follows:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move
3. Food

Did I get that about right? :lol:

Debbie's sister had a well bred mare that she was working on to make a barrel horse out of. (I said well bred but she was also brain dead!)

Earlier this winter she spooked at something and nearly ripped an eyelid off when she ran into an obstacle. $2000 later she was well on her way to healing.

Snow slid off the barn roof and spooked the dimwit again. When she hit the SECOND fence she managed to break a front leg and they had to put her down.

My 4 wheeler has never done a thing like that. :wink:

Oh she rides them in the steep hills where they live but she can't be convinced to lay off the grain when they are not working. That combined with the bloodline she likes makes them pretty goosey.
