#TBT: Pig's First Spook

Guinness has one big fear... people standing where he doesn't expect them. Thank god I found out about that quirk the first time I rode him...
Spooky bugger. Oh the number of times this horse almost broke my nose that first year...

  1. Pesky people, never being where they're supposed to be! Mikey feels the same way. Some popped out of the woods yesterday, with another horse, and he lost his cool.

    1. Ha! Oops!! For Pig it's almost always someone walking into the ring to clean up poop. Very suspicious, those poop pickers!

      Luckily I have learned to ride his spooks pretty well by now, and he has learned I won't take him somewhere with lions. He is very much a one person horse where being brave is concerned!

  3. Oh how I wish Tucker only had one big fear. I'd say Tucker has multiple phobias, rather than fears. There are just too many to list, but people appearing out of nowhere to ambush him are definitely on there. Totally relate to the almost-broke-my-nose thing.
