Want to amuse yourself and your human? Well, here are some fun activities for you!
Poop in the Water Game
This will test your coordination and spatial abilities. Horses all over the world practice this, every day. You must try to poop in your water container (note: drink water first, so you won't go thirsty!). If your water container is too high to poop in, you can attempt to poop on the stall's door, or on the wall. This also gives your human something to do-- when they see what you've done, they will marvel at your special abilities, then happily provide you with fresh water.
Artistic Wood Carving
You can become a wood carver. Use your teeth to chisel the wood of your stall into a beautiful piece of art! At first, you can start with simple shapes -- such as the half-moon bite shape-- and as you become more advanced you can try different forms (big curve shape or multiple bite shapes). Your human will really appreciate this. Some humans will actually remove your artwork from the stall, and put up fresh, new, unchewed boards-- encouraging you to develop your artistic abilities with a fresh, new canvas!
Grain Spilling Game
Try to dump out all of your grain from your grain bucket/container, by turning it over with your nose. It is a fun game. You can even continue to flip the container to be sure that all the grain is dumped on the ground. Then, using your delicate muzzle to guide you, try to pick up all the grain, sorting throught the bedding and poop. Amusing, and it makes your grain last longer. Your human will appreciate it too-- he/she may even bring you a new bucket of grain, or challenge you to become better by using more difficult containers!
Who Can Be The Loudest Contest
If you're stalled with other horses, try a little friendly competition with this game. When it's feeding time, see who can neigh, bang, scream, and kick the loudest in their stalls. Humans will instinctively throw food to the noisiest, most demanding horse, so try to be it. The winner is the horse that the human feeds first.
This not only provides fun for you, but fun for the human as well, because it makes the regular boring task of mucking more interesting. Try pooping in unusual areas. Poop on top of your door latches, or poop on window ledges. Poop in any food containers, or on top of salt licks. Try to poop any place that is not the ground.

This is why women should not take men shopping against their will.
My wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out... Equally unfortunately, my wife is like most women - she loved to browse.
Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Wal-Mart:

9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.
10.. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.
11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the ' Mission Impossible' theme.
12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his 'Madonna look' by using different sizes of funnels.
13.20October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through yelled, 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'

And last, but not least...
15. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in here!'

At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the
computer industry with the auto industry and stated,
'If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we
would all be driving $25 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon.'
In response to Bill's comments, General Motors issued a press release
If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving
cars with the following characteristics:
1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash........Twice a day.
2.. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy
a new car.
3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would
have to pull to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut off
the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue. For
some reason you would simply accept this.
4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your
car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to
reinstall the engine.
5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable,
five times as fast and twice as easy to drive - but would run on only five
percent of the roads.
6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be
replaced by a single 'This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation' warning
7. The airbag system would ask 'Are you sure?' before deploying.
8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and
refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle,
turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.
9.. Every time a new car was introduced car buyers would have to learn how
to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the
same manner as the old car.
10. You'd have to press the 'Start' button to turn the engine off. - My personal favorite
PS - I'd like to add that when all else fails, you could call 'customer
service' in some foreign country and be instructed in some foreign language
how to fix your car yourself!!!!
A guy was sitting quietly reading his paper when his wife walked up
behind him and whacked him on the head with a magazine.
"What was that for?" he asked. "That was for the piece of paper in your
pants pocket with the name Laura Lou written on it," she replied.
"Two weeks ago when I went to the races, Laura Lou was the name of
one of the horses I bet on," he explained.
"Oh honey, I'm sorry," she said. "I should have known there was a

Haiku to the Wonderful Red coat
I have this great red coat that, admittedly, is getting a little worn, my boarders have threatened to hide it next time I wore it out, when I couldn't find it I wrote this poem for it.
Wonderful red coat
You have kept me warm and dry
now you have vanished
The replys I received back:

i wipe a tear from my eye
shed for lost red coat
Big dogs visit barn
Red coat tug-o-war play ensues
Next play "Eat the Fluff"

Beloved red coat is found!

THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS AT FENRIDGE by Christina Johnston 2003
T'was the night before Christmas And all through the farm The horses were stirring Around in the barn The Crackpots were home In their respective places Tucked into beds With bright smiley faces But back in the stalls, Though put in for the night The horses of Fenridge Knew "something's not right" The nickers and neighs And a lone, soft whinney Said "hey, something's up" Oh what can it be? So Breeze, known as Spot Said "I'll check it out" And Ace opened his door, And Breeze tip-hoofed right out Silly Andy just shivered, Silent Jake kept on sleeping Brave Gem was on lookout And Bart dream't 'bout eating. Virgel was sleepy And only peeked out Over his stall door To see what was about Moet, he just noodled And McFlurry, took fright Just like Moonpie and Samson Who were there for the night The po's, Ma and Katie Stood silently by, Nolan, uncertain, He started to cry. The kids, Larry Big Head And Romke (who's two) Were too young to know What to say or to do Nate, Wagoner and Banker Were looking wide-eyed Around in their stalls All inside and outside Classy, Tuxedo And Maddie and Charm Soundly slept in their stalls All was calm at their farms But Olivia was hopping Around in her glee She knew what was up As did Old Wise Robbie For on the night before Christmas Each year at this time (I think it was maybe A quarter to nine) From out of the house Comes a man, moving fast To bring each horse of Fenridge A holiday snack He passes out carrots He passes out crunchies He passes out mints And special horse munchies He worked very quickly And stayed to his task And gave treats to the horses Right down to the last He finished his work To each horse gave a pet And returned to the house Where Patricia still slept And though it's a secret That the horses won't share It's the horse loving Matthew Who plays Santa each year!
T'was the night before Christmas
And all through the farm
The horses were stirring
Around in the barn
The Crackpots were home
In their respective places
Tucked into beds
With bright smiley faces
But back in the stalls,
Though put in for the night
The horses of Fenridge
Knew "something's not right"
The nickers and neighs
And a lone, soft whinney
Said "hey, something's up"
Oh what can it be?
So Breeze, known as Spot
Said "I'll check it out"
And Ace opened his door,
And Breeze tip-hoofed right out
Silly Andy just shivered,
Silent Jake kept on sleeping
Brave Gem was on lookout
And Bart dream't 'bout eating.
Virgel was sleepy
And only peeked out
Over his stall door
To see what was about
Moet, he just noodled
And McFlurry, took fright
Just like Moonpie and Samson
Who were there for the night
The po's, Ma and Katie
Stood silently by,
He started to cry.
The kids, Larry Big Head
And Romke (who's two)
Were too young to know
What to say or to do
Nate, Wagoner and Banker
Were looking wide-eyed
Around in their stalls
All inside and outside
And Maddie and Charm
Soundly slept in their stalls
All was calm at their farms
But Olivia was hopping
Around in her glee
She knew what was up
As did Old Wise Robbie
For on the night before Christmas
Each year at this time
(I think it was maybe
A quarter to nine)
From out of the house
Comes a man, moving fast
To bring each horse of Fenridge
A holiday snack
He passes out carrots
He passes out crunchies
He passes out mints
And special horse munchies
He worked very quickly
And stayed to his task
And gave treats to the horses
Right down to the last
He finished his work
To each horse gave a pet
And returned to the house
Where Patricia still slept
And though it's a secret
That the horses won't share
It's the horse loving Matthew
Who plays Santa each year!
