When all the blackthorn in the hedges comes into flower and there are are white patches of flowers  in the hedges - Havoc always shies at these and I can never understand why!

We had a hissy fit at a girl playing a saxaphone in the street this week for the jubilee - thought we'd never get passed her!

Damn those saxophone playing girls

It's lonely in the saddle since the horse died.

Flick used to spook at this life size great dane statue. was not impressed by it what so ever. Yet if it was a real dog even at that size she'd be fine.

The problem here is that what others think strange is quite normal for many of us, like why shy at one drain cover and not another is there something they can hear, why shy at a red bus of the same make as a blue bus, a horse runs away and shies away from hi-viz equipment bright yellow but not the orange, why a horse neighs and shy away from places where someone was killed in Sutton Park even when rider does not know weird, only found out later by talking to a historian of the park.

Gypsy Gold does not chink & glitter.It gleams in the sun and neighs in the dark.Tonka & Lara my beautiful horses RIP, Nelson,Chloe & Kitty the cats.

I'm going to spoil things rotten here by saying that my horse doesn't spook at anything... ever!  And that's why he's mine!

Strangely enough the only thing Bracken ever spooked at was a live Great Dane, and I was so unprepared for it I almost came off, as she span round and started cantering off in the opposite direction, lol !!

Grouse would spook at anything, a leaf, a pebble, and he wasn't over keen on buses....
