Blog Hop: Your Horse's Favorite Thing

The latest installment of Beka's blog hop is...

What is your horse's absolute favorite thing?  Outside of riding!  Are there treats that instantly convert your pony into an addict or liniments that leave him yawning and chewing?  What does your horse just love to have?
Fjords love food - it isn't a secret!

Ypke wants ALL the food
Ypke is a fatty, and food is her passion.  She also loves to have a job to do (specifically something that makes her think) and gets bored very easily.  Due to this, clicker training is the happy medium!  It allows her to have something to focus on, and in return for her good behavior she is rewarded with treats.

Another thing Ypke loooooves is when you scratch behind her ears or on her rump.

  2. I love that picture of her "smiling". She seems like she has quite the personality!
