scarlet has a fear of mats - until she gets to know them personally lol!! i hid one under her shavings once and my god did she freak out when she found it!! she has since made friends with the ones in her stable tho..... but its a real fear as even when out on the roads if there is a resurfaced bit of road that is blacker than the rest she does the whole.... "look how big i am and how loud i can grunt!!!" lol until she realises it isnt a mat and then shes fine haha

and romeo has a fear of absolutely nothing!!!!!!!! he is ridiculously bold!!!! which has caused me so many problems being that has a typical 2 year old welsh attitude and i cant seem to find a way to punish or correct him as everything is just a game to him ahaha

 My pony doesnt spook at anything anymore but she used to be really weird and spook at a bit of wood on hacks! LOL! Its weird but she was very green when I got her so no more spooking!

 My horse Luka has a habit of shy at people coming out of their houses or cars! She can hear them get out, it hilarious! She then gets all embarrassed! My 12.2hh spooks at Donkeys which I cannot understand as many horses will happily live with donkeys!

The sound of thundering hooves soften the beat of my heart!

 Dark patches on the road. Like if its been raining and theres a dark patch or a diffrent coloured bit of tarmac. She puts her head down and stares at them and snorts before purposly avoiding them at all costs.

My horse is 15.2 hands but was terrified of Shetland ponies! He's getting over his fear now though :)

hose pipes ... cats ... mishapen bushes ... white lines on the road ... his own reflection ... he once froze when he saw some donkeys ...........

He knows when you're happy, He knows when you're comfortable, He knows when you're confident, And he always knows when you have carrots!!
