My Horse Thinks He is a Dog...

When I am out riding John on a trail and he comes across a pile of manure, he dives his head to the ground to sniff it. It reminds me of my dog and the way she has to check everything out.

He'll stop dead in his tracks if I'm not paying attention. He even taught my friend's 3 year old gelding to do it when we accompanied them on their first trail ride.

Does anyone else's horse think its a dog?


  1. Pippi smells all manure that she can get to, in a "who was here?" investigation. She also hops up and down for treats, bouncing from foot to foot.

  2. I think that is exactly what John is doing - a who was here - investigation!

    I love that your horse hops up and down for treats :) Can you get that on video?
