>Horses as Early Warning Systems

>
Horses are Prey Animals.

If you understand that concept, you are well on your way to learning how to train them.

They are also pretty good Watchdogs because they are suspicious of Everything.

If I look out my window and see them all staring at something, I go check it out.
I usually find out that it’s a stranger walking down the road or a Coyote or Pheasant or some other animal.

I was trying unsuccesfully to sneak up on these horses, to get a shot of the 3 year-old Filly (brown) and her Mama (on the right). They saw me and came to the fence to see why I was crawling on my belly, like a reptile.

Why was I sneaking up to get a picture?

Because She is STILL NURSING.

The amazing part is the Mare still lets her.
The neighbor told me that she even lets Baby Calves nurse.

3 years old in Horse Years is about 12 in Human Years.
