Shetland ponies. Ridiculously intelligent and more stubborn than donkeys. I was almost kicked by one. She also threw me by running out of control toward a jump and then refusing it. Went right over her head, somersaulted and landed half on my feet and half on my butt at the feet of another horse. Dang lucky I wasn't trampled.

It's okay, not everyone likes every animal. :) I don't care for primates very much but a lot of people think they're cute.

Oops. Forgot to add Dechlorinator into the snails' water when I put them in. I added a some a little bit later though. So all should be good.

After I'm done working on my cat/dog/small animal vet time I'm headed over to a large animal vet though. Yes I'm nuts. I just need to experience everything! Dog acupuncture is pretty cool, the dog can lay down when the needles are in and nothing happens. O.O
Anyways it was a pretty crazy day. We're the vet's office that gets all the humane society and SPCA animals.. :( not good times.

Horses sorta act much like humans
dramatic to almost everything
curious about everything
very smart, strong and yet so gentle
and also can demand respect. tho there are some horses who are very reserved.
my mare is very reserved. my gelding, hes a whole nother world.

I've touched my 5.5 gallon's heater and it was warm but never burned me. Outside the water it got HOT fast.

I wonder if 3-4 50W hydros could heat a 75 gallon perfectly....I don't wanna get the recommended size and have it get stuck on and fry my fishys.

Exactly! The paint mare I worked with so sweet but very shy while a big old warmblood gelding loved to use me as a scratching post. (not fun if he pushes you into barbed wire) One horse who I rode when taking lessons as a kid was high strung and tend to run away; another could be trusted with the most raw beginner.

I adopted my mustang when he was 5, and brought in in a round up. He was king of the pile! He and another, much older and more scars, fought over the pile.

They made me put a halter and a thick rope, with knot on one end, through the halter before I could take him home. I gentled him. I used, 'big eyes' technique.

On the third day home, he had such a huge sore on his chin from that darn knot, I went in his pen. He stood still, I walked to him, and slowly, but purposefuly grabbed the knot and pulled it.

The sound freaked him out, but he stood still, and didnt try to kill me! From that day on, I was allowed inside with him. I did give him blue corn on the cob too. He loved it.

I never made join up with him till the last day of his life. I was a sucker for this guy, named BB.

I had a shetland too. If you tapped his rear, or patted it, hed buck you off. It was fun once i figured it out. lol. He came when you called him, and Id get a ride out to change the irrigation. He was so funny.

My arabian mare kicked me in the eyebrow once. She was like the most gentle mare ever, yet i did get kicked, when I first brought her close to the mustang. She was too excited. Took some time before I could leave them together.

She bothered him so..

You cannot be afraid around animals, they all can sense that. Hmmm, maybe that fish senses my fear of his spidy fins....

Gonna give Mocha a bath.. starting to get stinky. She hates water hehe. This should be fun.

I think the thing that made me most annoyed at horses was all those crazy horse people that are like nooo don't slaughter horses boohoo! Like, why is a horse so superior to a cow or pig that we can't slaughter it? pfft.

funny we started talking about horses and now my page is filled with horse ads...

I love mustangs. They just recently had a wild mustang/burro adoption drive. I wanted one of each.

Here's a few pics.

First, meet Fabio, the king. He's still very nervous and he won't unclamp when I'm around but you can see how gorgeous his dorsal is.
