Don't DO That!


What is he doing? Why is he doing that? How can I make him quit? Anytime a horse picks up a stable vice, you'll hear these questions from the exasperated caretaker. Stable vices come in many descriptions and go by many names. Do you know what they're all about? Take this quiz and find out. I'll score your quiz and return the results to you via email. Have fun!
