    Ouch. Toes are always in danger. I have lost count of how many toenails I have lost.

    I rode a young, greenish mare once. We were just warming up, walk on a lose rein when one of the other horses randomly spooked at something. My mare thought she'd missed something important and followed suite. Only, she jumped backwards. I was so not ready for that and nearly tumbled down over her shoulder.

    Gotta love those domino spooks.

    “Aagh, a tree stump!”

    “Aagh, Buttercup is being attacked by something!”

    “”Aagh, Zonkers is being eaten by Buttercup!”

    And so on...

    Zappers do not attract mosquitoes. They attract by light. 'skeeters go to breathing live animals.. Zappers kill moths and such

    This was a handheld one, no light, you wave it around like a tennis racket and swat at them.

    Believe me, I got skeeters with it. *insert maniacal laugh here*

    I felt this needed proof.

    So happy! What a good day!

    When I first got Chester, he would spook at mud puddles on the trail. When I forced him over, he would jump them (not fun in a western saddle). Funny thing is he was and always will be the biggest fan of rolling in mud puddles in the pasture o_O Glad we finally got over that on the trails.

    LOL thank you! I should! I'm kinda working up to making a thread. :ROFLMAO:

    These two are pretty spook free. The only time Doc (the chestnut) got upset is when I went insane and tied dozens of pie plates to my trees in an effort to keep hawks away from my chickens. He kept just standing out there staring at them and then staring at me like "REALLY?" Sonny doesn't get scared of anything except work.
