Horse Prefers Owner’s House Over Barn

Source: Multiple

“Now granted, this is “Feel Good Sunday” but today we may have to dub this installment as “Feel Really Weird Sunday”.  We’re sorry but this story is spreading like wild fire across the pond so we thought that we would share it with you here, in the good ole USA.

Now Terry and I enjoy spending about every waking moment with our equine companions, either we are out in the pastures with them, on the trails or even allowing them to come on into our human yard and graze while we work on landscaping and such (the pool IS off limits and we have a sign to remind them “No horses allowed beyond this point!”.

Likewise, Terry and I went to great expense to build the horses a first rate barn that not only offers them clean, comfortable shelter when inside but also affords them ample shelter when out, thanks to multiple porches with play sand beneath so that they always have a clean dry place to lounge. (They even have WiFi in the barn)  But inviting them inside our human home would be carrying things just a few steps too far, in my humble opinion.  (although Apache has been known to come through the garages and knock on the back door).

So please enjoy and have a few giggles…there is a link at the end to a great gallery of pictures, be sure to check it out.

A woman who took in a horse during the storms could be regretting her decision after the equine decided to stay.

The steed’s owner Stephanie Arndt thought it would be safer if the horse came to stay with her during the bad weather in Holt, northern Germany.

But Nasar, three, has become so comfortable that he spends most of the time there rather than at his stables nearby.

Ms Arndt said: ‘He is not a fan of the wind and the rain.’

As well as enjoying the luxuries of the house, Nasar also seems to have acquired some human tastes.

He reportedly likes to eat sweets, drink fruit juice and play the keyboard, according to Germany’s Die Welt newspaper.

Although Arndt allows the stallion in her house during the day, he is always forced to return to his stables at night – no matter how long that process takes.

  1. I’d say that’s one damn smart and lucky horse, wouldn’t you?! (-: Quite a cute and funny story, nonetheless. Thanks R.T. for sharing. (-:


  2. My Beau followed me in the back door, got stuck in the wash room, and couldn’t turn around. The only way out was right through the living room and out the front door. Of course it was a beautiful Saturday when all the neighbors were working in their yards to witness Beau coming out the front door and down the steps as if it were an everyday thing for him.


  3. How Special. I Knew A Man Who Kept His White Horse In The House. That Was Right Here In The Midwest. I Still Love A Cute Story And I Suppose It’s NotMuch Different Than A Large Dog.


  4. How l~o~v~e~l~y~ Now this horse, Nasar, is truly a companion fur “person!” A beautiful home he now has, oriental rugs, piano, & all. A small English cottage tough for his large size. No matter, he is HOME. I even bet he is potty trained to NOT do in the home. Tea time Nasar? 🙂


  5. Nasar is one smart cookie isnt he???? i believe in heated stables kept at 55 degrees perfect for horsey comfort !!!! But thats just me ……………


  6. Cracks me up several , British, and Irish folks have had horses, ponies, and mules live inside their homes. The interenets a little behind on the news. Its a phenom that started in the 70s during a blizzard where people were bringing foals in to bottle feed in their homes, we have an array of pics of horses being transported as foals and yearlings in station wagons and cars as well. Thats where the folks preserving rare bloodlines turned profits up with the news of house raised foals during that period. People still have run in sheds or carports to allow horses access through a window in the house for handfeeding, even letting horses drink from sinks.


  7. Arabians are known for being “people” oriented. It’s said that the Bedouins shared their tents with their horses.
    One funny story that I remember was of an Arab getting himself caught in one of those inner-tube swings…the kind that hang from a tree limb. Somehow, he got his front legs into it and was just suspended there until his owner got him out.


  8. I think the woman has excellent taste! Her horse is gorgeous. Okay I admit I love dapple grays…and I know of two horses that are potty trained so yeah–I could be convinced to have a horse in my house…

    The neighbors might complain but we are zoned for horses and as long as I kept things kept up–nothing better than a sweet smelling barn uuur house! Right?!


  9. Yes, Louie the bedouins shared their tentsbwuth their beautiful Arabians. They were their prized possessions. I had friends who had a huge pasture right outside their family room. The windows were ceiling to floor. The horses would come to the window especially in the evening to watch TV. I also saw an article about a whit pony whose owner drove him around in a catilac convertible. He also slept in a twin bed in the house. He was so smart that he knew how to pull the covers up if he got cold. I have heard that horses can be house broken. Unreal!!!!
