I think a curious horse is a good thing and occasionally a dangerous or annoying thing. But most of the time it's an amusing thing. Until they lock you in the feed room like Carson's horse Lyle did - anybody remember that?
Anywho, Smokey is a curious horse and very lippy. Like Lyle, I think.
I had left him tied near the tack room in the barn alley and went to get Lily. I heard the sound of things falling. I was surprised when I walked into the tack room to find this on the floor.
Smokey looked surprised to see me.
(See that roundish white container just out of reach? That's the cookie jar)
Now we tie Smokey on the other side - near the feed room door. Somehow I'm not sure that's a good idea either.
