Be enchanted by this horse gently rocking a young human visitor!
Horses seem to possess a certain awareness — while certainly not every horse is destined to become a child’s first lesson pony, I’m sure we’ve all witnessed individual animals taking immense care around young children, the elderly or the disabled. Watching these interactions may trigger the realization that horses may know much more than we give them credit for.
As a charming example, watch this horse gently “rocking” a baby in a carrier set on the ground before his stall:
Whether you think the horse was just playing with an object left within reach, or if you think he was consciously interacting with the baby, this is a heart-warming little video!
