    I grab mane (when hollered at to...) but don't think it would ever occur to me to grab a strap even if one was there.

    The downside to grabbing mane is that she has so much of it, I can have a...

    At first I thought my TWH gelding was just "Beau". A pretty generic, but not bad horse name.

    Then I found out it was, in full, "Beau Justice" and I giggled at how very...southern it was. This has...

    I work with two. Disclaimer: I've not ridden either of these horses, just worked with them on the ground/led them for rides.

    The gelding is a sweet boy, but the mare...oh, the mare. She can be a...

    I haven't mixed them up while fetching them...but if you ask me which minimally marked chestnut QH mare is out in the ring, heck if I can tell you unless I can see the halter.

    I can tell the...

    My cat was on BB for awhile with no ill effects.

    Then again, she likes to switch brands at her whim, so she's rarely on a food for longer than 6 months. She has food allergies and this is JUST as...

    Gee, and to think I thought my Walker clever for untying himself. Beau never took his HALTER off...! Far smarter, why you're that much harder to catch!

    She's not far from me. Money's a little thin this time of year, but I have half a bag of carrots, you know...

    What a cute little bugger.

    And 20 is nothing, most of my riding time has been on horses that age or older. And not a few of them went careening around with me needlessly, too. :eek:

    I had a an adolescent pup in a harness most of the time because...well. Trouble making, not house broken, leash yanking youngster. It was convenient, but I'd worry about it getting caught on things...

    If she has high prey drive--I wonder if a squaker/"wounded rabbit call" like they use with greyhounds would be attention getting enough to yank her away from flesh and blood bunny excitement?

    Of...

    I bought these at Dover, and I like them so much I wear them everywhere, not just for riding.

    I'm about the same size as you, height and weight. If she's anything like the quarter pony I know...no harm in hopping on, I shouldn't think!

    I've ridden a 13.3 Welshie to much hilarity. He...

    And here I am having moved to a more rural-ish area and I'm excited at the idea of planting a garden...so that I can attract and watch the rabbits.

    Priorities, I have them.

    As others have said, it depends.

    With the horse I currently ride, as she is young, large, a mare, and not mine, I do the whole lead in, turn around to face door, remove lead routine. She isn't a...

    Not intentionally! I had a riding lesson scheduled the day before my wedding, and the only reason I didn't ride is because my TRAINER said no. I was riding a notoriously naughty horse at the time and...

    Come now, we know what pros horses are at hurting themselves in even mundane situations. ;) Getting overly frisky with a dummy? Yeah, seems probable!

    I was blessed with a saint of an older TWH. He had little to no spook, his default mode was "stop", and he tolerated all sorts of nonsense. Naturally his fate in life was to pack around all the...

    What rescues have the facilities to handle a stallion? Very few that I know of. They usually get gelded because many rescues 1) don't support breeding and 2) are largely staffed by volunteers, who...

    I am much more likely to get along with a gelding than a mare, so I generally prefer them. I can and do like SOME mares, but but for some reason or another, we're also more likely to clash.

    S1969--ABR is where my boy went when he couldn't stay with me anymore. I'm SO glad they're there, as he was 7 at the time and none of the general rescues would take him.
