    That's because you forgot to say "please." It's "Get over here bitch, please!"

    Mods, please don't ban our new toy! This one's kind of fun I saw she got a time out a few days ago, doesn't appear to be helping much yet.

    I opened this thinking it was Game of Thrones/Westeros related. They have horses. And ponies. And ride. And stuff.

    Bummer.

    Pfffffttttt! I laugh at you all and your vocal directions. I have joined up, discovered my horse's horsenality and have become one with him. I simply communicate with mental telepathy that he needs to put on his own halter, open the gate and come with me. It isn't my fault he doesn't have opposable thumbs and can't follow my instructions

    Yes, it worked everytime for me, but one of my OTTBs knew if the wrapper contained a peppermint or if I was trying to pull a fast one. We have an "Oh Shit" bucket full of goodies; shake that and they all come flying.

    Most certainly! I shall describe a typical day of procurring my fine equine friend. Whilst the clouds were producing mist which moistened the fair and dewy skin on my face, I stood in my Barbour coat and wellies, admiring my fine steed. I enjoyed a fine blend of Earl Grey tea, wishing that once again the bonnie Prince William and his new bride, the Duchess (or Kit Kat, as she has begged me to call her) had joined me for the day.

    After tea, I call for my ever loyal Thomas to dispose of my cup and saucer and then softly whisper a quiet "I beg your pardon, fair horse, but I am in need of a fine ride for a jaunt through the English countryside". Fair horse then deigns to ignore me.

    Upon which I raise my wonderfully accented and gentile voice and yell, "c'mon Dover! Move yer blooming 'arse!!!!"

    Horse promptly comes toward me, whilst lowering his head to enable that I should slip a halter over his noble head. My endeavor is finished.

    bahahaha. I had a british riding instructor who called her horse Fugly. I wish I was kidding. It was (mostly) affectionate, though.

    I have to say I feel small for posting - but, hey, it was too tempting. Isn't there a forum for young people to post and share their ideas? We are just too
    hard on them.
