Rally, the SuperGelding

Rally made me laugh again yesterday. Sugar and Rally share a paddock with access to their own two stalls. They eat hay together twice a day out of an old water trough. They basically spend all their waking minutes side by side.
So the barn owner forgot to get feed for Sugar and two other horses at the barn. My boyfriend buys Rally his own feed as part of his contract. So Rally had feed and Sugar didn't. I dumped feed into a hang-onto-fence bucket and hung it on the board portion of the fence, which happens to be on Sugar's side of their hay trough. Of course she walks right up and takes a bite. Rally was having none of this, and tried to push Sugar's face out of the bucket, which didn't work. SO he bit the side of the bucket and yanked it right out from under Sugar's mouth!!
As always, Rally's intelligence amazes me!
