Mom! He just untied himself! Does he always do that? What a silly boy! I think he was wanting some treats!

I have a Houdini too! That's so cute and funny ... until you really need them to stay tied. My Jaz does it all the time. You can't turn your back for a second.

He wants out to play.

Just read your profile. I got my first horse when I was in my 50's too. We have one that's able to untie himself too. He's stymied by the cross ties though.

Hay Paint Girl,
you are right! We were through with play time and he knew it was treat time!!!

Love the video's on your blog! Too cool!!! Saw that you found my blog, so here I am visiting yours! You wrote about tail flagging -- I think Tennessee Walking Horses must do it naturally because our girls do it all the time (??). I will be back to read more of your posts. Love hearing about other horse owners' experiences.
P.S. The cat doesn't actually let me soak his foot without a fight -- I have the scratch marks to prove it!

What a stinker! My daughter would say you need a cowboy knot. I don't know how to tie one! Knots are a challenge for me.

That is cute, I have seen Dusty try to do that before. I think he looks very impatient there, like he's looking at your to do something, then giving up because you are just holding the dumb camera, so he decides to just do it himself!! ;) He's a smart cookie. A few weeks ago My Boy gripped the zipper of my fanny pack with his lips and unzipped it! I thought it was a fluke but last weekend he went to do it again. I don't keep treats in there (sometimes a power bar for myself) but I think he sees me get in and out of it so often....maybe he's just trying to figure out how to do it? Horses are funny!

What a trickster!! We have a 20 year old gelding that tries to open the door knob to our feed/tack room. He gets his upper lip around the handle and tries to turn it!! Those sneaky geldings!! LOL

What a stinker!

Why I always put the loose end of the lead through the loop. I tie a lot, a good majority of horses get bored and try and nibble on the rope which in turn unties a lot of them lol!

Desert Rose said...

If he was tied on both sides...he could not untie himself!!! But then the mom would have to learn that trick!

Broken Y said...

Ornery stinker! I have two that do that! He's a beauty though!
