Or is Troy just taking the you know what?
Occasionally, when i go to pick his feet up he pick up the opposite foot.
It would be nice if it was a sense of humor and not the fact that he his batty!:)

Their natural behaviour i'd say we could sometimes say it is a sense of humour [in our recognition of human behaviour] when they are playing and bonding with us, so in an anthromorph way, yes they probably do. Just not a sense of humour as we'd understand it :scared:
Spud does that sometimes - he's not being bad, just gets mixed signals as i did teach him to bow on command with the opposite leg :rofl:

I think sense of humour. Mo likes to shake her head a do a mini rear when she wants to play chase.

I think they do, Ollie always begs for food he has been taught to bow so he thinks everytime he bows he gets some treats, so sometimes you will open his door and he will be bowing, or you will go to get something out of your pocket or he thinks he deserves one and he bows as well
Dennis certainyl did when you went to catch him, he would let you get so close then do this really half assed sneaky trot away let you get to him again and do it again, he was really cheeky

I do believe they have their little personalities and humour. Tonight was quite funny I thought anyhow as Chance is a right little madam at times.
We dont have to tie her up when we bring her in from the field, she will stand perfectly still outside the corridor to her stable and wait till her rug is off and feet picked out and everything. We then just slip her head collar off and tell her to go in her stable which she does. Tonight she walked to go in and stopped BCE patted her on the bum to go in but she wouldnt. She then noticed that the stable door was closed so that was the reason she wouldnt go in, lol!! She waited till BCE opened the door, looked at the door and then turned round and looked at Sapphire's friend as if to say the stupid woman, how could I get in with the door closed!!!

I think they do yes.
Little Dylan used to pinch my cap when I was poo picking. He'd run round with it and guarenteed everytime he would take it and drop it into the trough :lol:
Kiwi likes to wave his feet around when having his bandages on, not naughty just being Kiwi.
Abbey will pull faces at everything and slosh water all over you given tha chance :)
