    Default Prankster Hits New Low

    So, I'm used to having my resident prankster, DannyBoy, wreak havok all over my backyard barn. But the other morning he outdid himself. 5:00 am, and I'm walking through the paddock carrying two buckets of hot water to mix the rice bran for breakfast. Danny is waiting at the gate like always. As I walk through, he is behind me rubbing his nose on my back, but then he grabs my belt loop and pulls down, and my jeans go down to my knees.

    I couldn't really put the buckets down, because the numbskull would no doubt have scalded himself on the hot water. So I waddled to the barn, trying to keep my pants at least halfway up using body english. In the end, that was a failed attempt.

    I managed to get to the barn and put the buckets down out of his reach and, umm...adjust. He stood, amused, in the doorway with the familiar "who,me?" look I have become accustomed to.

    Luckily, I don't think the neighbors get up as early as I do...

    If i'm posting on Coth, it's either raining so I can't ride or it's night time and I can't sleep.

    Brilliant!

    I'd sort of hope the neighbors saw that one- think how much joy you would have brought to their day!

    I love prankster horses, I really do. There was a fantastic draft gelding (belgian maybe?) at a barn I worked at who was around 19 hands- biggest horse I've ever known. He greatly enjoyed his size. He thought there was nothing funnier than picking up things you were using and holding them straight up in the air. Totally funny as long as it's happening to someone else.

    This is a pony? Because who had the quote around here about they're shorter and therefore closer to hell? What an imp! (Be grateful he hasn't figured out how to use a camera phone and Twitter...yet.)

    Ha! Your Danny and my Doni are cut from the same cloth! I hope he never learns to do what your horse did.
    That was too funny!

    Or how to bribe peeps with opposable thumbs to do it for him.

    I kinda heard that kid from 'King of the Hill' say it: I pulled your pants down.

    Nope not a pony. A 1250 lb 16.1 Paint. And I'm a late-middle aged male so I don't think anyone is lining up with binoculars.

    You should not have let this become known. Have you not read the man-auction threads?

    Non, ma chère Mignonne – you can’t come in my house and read this thread on my computer!

    She likes sneaking up behind people anyway – and my cool set of linen workpants is low-rise to begin with…..

    Me too! Mine is pretty creative but that's the best I've heard!

    Can you get a video of that next time it happens?

    Sorry no videos!! However if anyone is interested, there is a short story about him that appeared a couple of years in a local nag rag that I sometimes write for.

    The story is called "Charlie Hustle", named for the Cincinnati Reds legendary first baseman, Pete Rose, who always gave 110% on the field, but also was legendary for getting into trouble off the field.

    It's in the blog section of my COMH page, kinda buried in the archive part of the blogs.
