Horses, are they embarrassing, or what?

Our two are still on holiday, staying with a friend of my OH. Due to the return of the sun to this part of the world, my OH moved them to a larger paddock, which has some shaded areas but also young trees planted. My boy needs a grazing muzzle on at this time of year and given the size of the new paddock, and the trees, my OH put a muzzle on her mare too.

Today we got back from our ride and the land owner, his son, his wife (who is learning to ride), her sister and husband are all sitting on some picnic benches at the top of the paddock when we get back.

Suitably groomed and fed (the horses, not the OH and I), we put the horses into the paddock and went to chat. With that our mare walks over to a shrub, only six feet from the group and starts to eat it

Even with the muzzle on she was doing a pretty good job of destroying the thing. Oh dear! Everyone is laughing and we move her away, but after a minute she returns to continue. We ended up tying a big trug bucket over the shrub.

So, mare pushes off and my gelding wanders up for a fuss and then wanders off to nosh nearby, as he is a very sociable type and rather likes being near people. I have my back to him, talking to our landlord and family, when I notice a couple of glances in his direction from members of the group, and smirks appearing. A quick glance over my shoulder and OH DEAR! You guessed, he is munching away at the grass, showing his appreciation by...ummm extending his manhood to the fullest extent

Don't anyone try to convince me that horses don't have a (base) sense of humour.

Ha ha, they do know how to play to an audience don't they!

I has a non horsey friend staying over the weekend. She came down the field to visit the horses. I tell her that she will love Barney, he is so handsome. We get there and there is Barney with drooping bottom lip and gigantic willy swinging in the breeze looking like a perverted half wit....

I do clicker training with FB and we were videoing him to show some friends. Trouble is anything to do with food just gets him rather 'excitable' so there am I pointing at his hoof for him to lift it and he's pointing back at me, and not with his hoof either.

We had to stop the session, much to his annoyance, because I was laughing so much. It was when we played back the video and you can hear my YO friend saying to my husband, 'That's nice to show your friends...' in a sardonic sort of way
