I am not a treat mooch


The DOR has informed me that I have become a slightly bad-tempered treat mooch. Whatever! She has no idea what she is talking about. She says this picture is proof that I am a bit grouchy when carrots, green apple treats, or rose hips do not appear quick enough from her pocket. She says I have my ears back and I am already working my mouth in anticipation. Again I say whatever! Take a closer look...My ears aren't pinned, they are slightly rotated because I am listening for danger. Danger could be coming and I would have to be ready in an split second to save the DOR. My mouth isn't working in anticipation of a treat, I am trying to sing to the DOR. The DOR is always singing or humming to us so I thought I would return the favor. Just because the DOR thinks that I am a treat mooch does not make it so. Just because I rush over to her and check out her pockets before I give her a smooch these days does not mean I am a treat mooch. Just because I stand with my nose through the barn window every time I hear someone in the barn does not mean I am a treat mooch. I am thinking that the DOR needs to spend more time practicing her horsey communication. She must be rusty because she is completely misinterpreting what I am doing...that is my story and I am sticking to it. I have been wrongly accused I tell you and the DOR should return to carrying treats for me in her pockets again.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!

um yeah .. Star is on what we call " treat ban" . She gets to be so rude when treats cometh via pockets. Esp, when it is peppermints, they are like crystal meth to her, so she can only have them once in awhile.

stick to your story Jack or you will be on treat ban

Nice try Jack! remeber patience is key when working with your DOR , you will still get the treat , but treat her kindly and wait

I learned a new trick. I have to back up before I get a cookie. It means I can't check for... dangerous items that could be in my alpha mare's pocket, but apparently that's frowned upon...

Jack you are such a great horse! Singing to your DOR and checking for danger too! What a guy! You stick to that story Jack 'cause it's a good one. Sandy and Dani don't get treats on a regular basis because they tend to expect them and run me over trying to get them from me!

Poor Jack! Sooo misunderstood. I think it's a darn shame that any horse should put up with the abuse you do. You have my sympathy, bud.
