Up Close and Personal With an Anna’s Hummingbird

(Lake Tahoe, California - 8/2011)

So every year our backyard is taken hostage by at least one hummingbird. Frequently there will be several, all fighting for my Mum’s red crocosmia and the favourite perch in the willow tree. So I’ll be watching a hummer out the window, sitting on a flower stem and craning its neck this way and that, and then VROOM THERE WILL BE TWO AND THEN THREE AND THEY’LL BECOME TINY FIGHTER JETS BATTLING FOR OUR YARD I love hummingbirds.

This is my youngest colt, Dante.

He is half Houdini, half goat.

I took him to his very first halter show, left him tied to the trailer with his mother, and turned my back. When I looked back, he had untied himself, his mother, and was halfway to the next trailer over - presumably to either make friends, untie the other horses, or attempt both.

So I stuck him in the trailer, figuring he couldn’t get in much trouble in there.

Now, I don’t know how familiar you are with stock trailers/cattle haulers/what have you, but many have this hay loft up front, and a partitioning gate about halfway back that can be locked open or shut.

He unlocked the center partition (the mechanism for this is on the *outside* of the trailer), waltzed up front, and climbed into the hay loft.

This is how I found him.

(He was not hurt, if you were curious. He just kinda hopped back down.)

He is now 6 years old, and his antics over the years have included: opening gates, untying every knot that I know how to tie, undoing various buckles (on halters, headstalls, saddles, harnesses, *my belt*), pantsing his farrier, attempting to steal his vet’s wallet, opening doors, climbing stairs (up *and* down), climbing into the back seat of the truck, opening the trailer door, locking his brother in said trailer, treeing a raccoon, outsmarting the electric fences (fence posts are insulated, thus do not shock him + if the wire touches the ground, it shuts off = remove the fence posts, ground the wire, escape).

Today, he clipped my truck keys off my belt and disappeared with them. 

This horse is too smart. Send help.

omfg this has me crying i’m laughing so hard.

today, in news that’s both weird and wonderful. horses! who knew!

Those are all of the signs of a Disney animal sidekick. You are the lovely protagonist. True self-discovery and love are in your future. Trust me, I know a veterinarian.
