My World with a horse

I have decided that you are NO-ONE till you've been ignored by your horse!
My mare and I had been grooming in her outdoor stall. She had her precious hay bag full of yummys, and that is usually all it takes for her to be content. She is thin skinned and does not go in for much grooming..she wiggles and squirms and moves all over the place.Just about as annoying to me, as it must be for her.
This day, I thought she wanted a drink, after about 20 minutes of eating, and normally, even grooming won't make her hesitate to come on back to the stall for more precious hay......not this time.....So I am in the stall, making all the "come on back and get a treat" noises, like forever. And she is in the back part of her pasture the entire time. Absolutely no intention on coming back!
"Uh- maybe she won't see me all the way back here"
"Oh, she will understand...all this 1/2 in grass to eat"
"Oh, er"...she gives me the one eared, straight on look......


" Ohwa, somthin' maybe over to the right of me..needs lookin' at"......



" Oh anda, now somethin' to the left of me...it is catchin' my attention!"


Yep, had to go and fetch her for the grooming finale and then off to ride!

  1. Ah, the one-eared look. When they can't be bothered to give you their full attention. Raven does not like to be groomed lightly -- it has to be all out heavy-handed or she will wiggle. If you are rough with her she likes it...dirty girl!

  2. Lol, I can't believe she ignored you like that! I've been ignored too, but these days Arwen mostly tags behind me in hope of receiving some bran mash. It's all she wants these days. Anyway, loved the post and thanks for bringing more horses to My World! :-D

    The Zinder trail awaits you and Wa, so hurry up and enjoy it with us!

  3. Horses are just lovely and sometimes a little aloof.

  4. I don't know too much about horses. When I was a kid our family kept two horses in our pasture for some friends and we would ride them. I remember trying to entice them to the barn to saddle them or something was definitely harder on some days than others.
    Thanks for bringing back some long ago memories.

  9. Not having a horse to ignore me, I have only dog-noring to compare it to. But it's just as passive aggressive. Every bit!

  10. Haha what a funny post! Wa's just as goofy as my Daisy--they seem to think "well if I just walk away she'll forget all about what she was just doing to me." yeah right lol.

    Cute pics, Wa is so photogenic.

  12. Hmmmm....humans can be like that too - ha! Great post, I loved the running commentary, and your photos. And your horse is beautiful even with the selective hearing thing going on :)

  13. Casey has dissed me a couple times. His latest was to decide I'm not trustworthy, but that our trainer is! I went to give him a bath yesterday and he refused to walk into the wash stall and looked at me like I might grow two heads or something. Needless to say, he ended up getting a bath anyways! But to trust the trainer who makes him work and not "Mom" who brings cookies, carrots and love? What a silly boy!

    corksh- What we call the cork on a bottle of wine after we've had too much to drink and can't find the cork! Example: "Do you have the corksh?" "No. Where's the corksh?"

  16. Hi, saw your comment over at Babooshka's and we have the same passion I think ;-) HORSES
    My blog is not all about horses though, but my last entry is, so I would like to invite you over at my place and ask you if you have a good idea for a horsename. All will become clear if you visit me ;-)

    You have a lovely horse. She's beautiful! And I really like the photos you took while riding.

    Nice to have 'met' you, think I might visit you more often.

  23. Beautiful horse. Thanks for sharing that precious moments with her.

  24. Haha, Oh Wa!! Isn't it something to be ignored by our equine companions? Errika has done the same thing to me too. Ink on the other hand, gives me the "look" instead of ignoring me.

  25. Heeheehee!!!

    I've had Bo do that to me once too! I haltered him, and then went to get another horse, thinking that he would just follow me as he always does. Nope!!! He proceeded to walk to the very back of his paddock and peer out at me from the trees.

    I had been riding him a lot, and I wondered if it was his way of telling me that he wanted a day off, thank you very much!!!

    PS-I love your monochrome!!

  26. Don't you just love it when they pretend that they're so very interested in everything except you? Silly ponies! Wa is such a pretty girl. She just wants to remind you that she is the one with all the choices, not just you...and besides she is so very busy trimming all that grass don't ya know?
    Must be a TB thing to be so thin-skinned and not liking to be groomed...Shad is the same way.

  27. LOL that's a horse for you, I used to ride in my youth and care for horses. She's beautiful though

    ReplyDelete
  28. Aha! So that's what you meant when you left me that message on my blog.

    Whew! Now I feel so much better about my horse ignoring me and trying to get away. Seems that al horses get this 'tude at times, eh?

    Silly horses!

  29. Lol, that made me laugh. Sometimes I think my pets only see me as a big, fancy food dispenser too.

  30. I used to have a mare who had to be brushed lightly or I'd get the flat eared look! My two geldings love the rough stuff. Is it a boy thing!!
