I cannot wrap my mind around this horse! My draft crosses certainly have their own personalities but are basically food-loving and straight forward. Mr. Henry is totally different from other horses I've owned.
Here are a few of Henry’s quirks that are strange to me in a series of non-related memes because I'm bored and it's too hot to ride right now.
He is not really interested in eating. For example I put him in a catch pen with two flakes of hay while I was waiting for my farrier and he layed down and used the flakes of hay as a pillow.
I swear he is passive aggressive. Lately he’s been funny about picking up his hooves for me. He will tilt his leg forward so his heel is lifted and all his weight in on the toe. And just look at me. He’s been foot broke for a year and half. Now he’s decided it’s BS.
He is a princess about wearing a slightly over-sized halter. When I head out into the field I bring Apollo’s rope halter. It’s huge but I know whichever horse I encounter first it will fit. Henry cannot handle the only slightly too large halter. He sneezes, cough and wiggles his head.
He is incredibly clumsy and is not very careful with his own head. He was pawing in his grain the other day and actually tripped on it and fell over. He also seems to have a new scratch on his head every time I see him.

Anyone else deal with some unusual equine behaviour?
