Question On How Black Hole Sees Infalling Matter

I was just thinking and throwing out thoughts to see if they are sensical.
Take for an example a ball of matter and it stays intact all the way falling into a black hole. I was thinking when it "hits" the event horizon, does the black hole retain its bias of space outside, or does the black hole "see" the ball of matter appearing to "hit" it from all points in space that surrounds it at the event horizon? At the event horizon, as per my crazy and maybe uninformed ideas, is time equivalent at all points of the event horizon only when that that event happens where the ball of matter finally hits it? Or is the time equivalent at all points on the event horizon even if nothing "hits" it? So this event horizon acts instantaneously all around itself...yikes...is there something like that?
