Silly things my horse does

I was thinking about all the silly things my horse does that I love. Here are a few:

1) Stays in the barn when it's cold, rainy, or snowy. (He's the indoor type, evidently.)

2) Steps around the puddle when he gets done peeing. (He doesn't like to get messy, either.)

3) Bobs his head when he wants a treat. It doesn't get much cuter than that!

4) Tries to nip at my clothes when he's walking behind me, and then acts innocent when I turn around and look. I know this is naughty, and believe me, he gets in trouble when he does it. But secretly, it amuses me very much — not to mention it shows how smart he is, to know he'd better act like he wasn't doing anything when I turn around!

5) Gets jealous when I don't pay enough attention to him. Again, bad habits, and he gets in trouble when he does something really naughty, such as biting me, to get my attention. But really, I can't help but be a little flattered that he cares this much whether I'm paying attention to him or not!

I'm sure there's more, but that's all I can think of right now. What silly but endearing habits does your horse have?
