Tuesday’s Top 10 – Things horses always spook at

10. Dogs. The smaller, the scarier.

9. Water. You are wearing an inflatable emergency life jacket but I’m not!

8. Gusts of wind. A clear sign of a tornado.

7. Shadows. You never know what is lurking in them.

6. Suspicious flowers. Could conceal murderers.



5. Golf carts. You cannot trust any human’s driving.

4. Ditches. You could fall in one and be lost forever.

3. Other horses. Horses are dangerous and unpredictable animals.

2. Plastic bags. Have you seen the warning labels on those things?!

1. The sound of their own farts. Gotta run away from the smell.
