Just like humans, every horse has his own quirks. Sometimes these little idiosyncrasies are endearing. Take, for example, the horse who nickers for his owner’s attention every time she visits with another horse in the barn, or the one who will make funny faces after being given a favorite treat. Other times, these quirks can be annoying, like a clever equine who figures out he can hinder bath time by stepping on the hose or the pony who digs a hole in the front of his stall and seems to laugh when distracted humans step into it.
