Being flight animals, horses’ reactions to daily life are sometimes more reminiscent of an alien who just landed on a hostile planet than an animal that’s had its entire life to get used to how things work. For example…
Horse: What. Is. This. Crinkly…shiny…OH MY GOD IT MOVED. GET AWAY GET AWAY!
Human: Grooming kit.
Horse: Possible food container. Best to scatter contents to find out.
Human: Plastic bag.
Human: Wind moving through trees, which it doesn’t even make sense to spook at considering horses live outside.
Horse: DEFINITELY ghosts.
Horse: Death cave
Horse: Sweet, sweet relief from this cruel world…
Human: Nice, easy vertical
Horse: The kind of jump that’s easier to go through than over.
Human: Hard-earned cash.
Human: Puddle of water on the trail
Horse: Possibly deadly quicksand lagoon
Human: Paddock gate
Horse: Butt scratcher
Human: Body clippers
Horse: Suspiciously buzzing insect
Human: My snack.
Horse: MY snack.
