TOABH: Idiosyncracies

This week, Beka at The Owls Approve asks:

What personality quirks does your pony have?  What makes him or her special?

This topic was made for Ginger, however I feel like I've detailed most of her quirks in depth. Here's a post. Here's another. One more. Oh hey, here's another. This is a good one. How bout this? Or even this?

Let's talk about Bridget for a change:

-She's very social. She loves the barn and she loves visiting her human friends. To the point where when you put her out to the pasture you'd better make sure you're completely through the door before you take her halter off. Otherwise she'll back back into the barn and play impossible to catch. I've never in my life had to spend a half an hour trying to catch a pony in the barn aisle in order to turn them out with their buddies in a giant pasture. Usually you just open the door and out they go!  Seriously, she's all alone in there and there is no food. She's weird.

Also, I've probably mentioned it, but the whole needing to pee on the road centerline thing. On the hill so it all splashes and runs all around us. Super awesome.

On a less embarrassing note, she's one of the most sensible and confident horses I've ever met. She's very interested in everything around her, but she finds very little there to concern her. I appreciate that very much.


  1. Ginger and Murray are spirit twins born from different mares, I SWEAR. Midge sounds uh-dorable.

    1. If I was a scientist I'd want to create a Murray/Ginger foal in a lab somewhere. Just for fun, although obviously such a foal could not really be unleashed on the world.

  2. haha my mare has backed out of the pasture before too and then played hard to catch... frustrating!! lol

    1. I was so frustrated with her and just about left her there, like 'OK, Bye, I'm leaving now, have fun in the dark barn aisle all by yourself' ha ha

  3. Aw bless her, what an odd ball. I love it! ☺☺☺☺
