    Default My horse rocks because......

    Each post should only have one sentence so it's a fun and easy thread. It might even be able to avoid a trainwreck, however, there are no guarantees.

    So, jump in and complete the following sentence:

    "My horse rocks because......"

    When I hold up the fly mask, she walks right into it.

    My horse rocks because the typically reactive gal deals well with her Adequan shot from an inexperienced shot-giver (me).

    He's a "point and shoot" kinda guy. He's not going to put himself in danger as long I hang on. We do scary trails and I'f I don't pay attention, then bad things can happen. Because I'm supposed to be the responsible one and beleive me, I don't want that to go bad in a heartbeat. Love this horse.

    I couldn't dream of a better, smarter, more willing horse.
    A friend told me I was delusional. I almost fell off my unicorn.

    My horse rocks because....despite my own inadequacies, he takes care of me over the jumps and is happy to be rewarded with an oreo cookie.

    because even though he is a baby he does everything I ask him to do! And he can get out of a locked stall in less than 30 seconds (I have video to prove this).

    because she held her ground when two Border collies charged us and let me shoo them from away the saddle - and could cause me to write world's longest run-on about other examples of the "crazy" OTTB mare I love

    In regards to my attack horse...
    I was walking through the pasture with the excavator that was going to dig a water line. Attack horse (unbeknownst to me) was following us. I turned around to say HI to the horse, tripped and landed on my behind. Nice excavator dude took a couple of steps over to give me a hand up and the Attack Horse pinned his ears, bared his teeth and lunged at the poor guy. He wasn't kidding. Attack Horse came over to me and put his head down and kept nuzzling me. He alternated nuzzling me and glaring at the poor guy.
    I got up and we continued on our way, but my sweet horse kept a sharp eye on the excavator dude.
