Nose blow

We have to admit that one of our favorite scheduled events during the summer is the LaPorte County Fair with long leisurely walks through the horse barn. One horse in particular caught our eye.

He looks just like any other horse except for when you start talking to him. If a clown was ever trapped in a horse’s body, this was it.

His owners attached a pinwheel to the door of his stall, which we found odd until the reason why put smiles on our faces. This equine lifted his head , took a deep breath, and blew as hard as he could on that pinwheel. Believe it. A horse who knew how to use a pinwheel! Astonishing.

A Horse of a Feeling

An old wives tale expresses that horses can feel human emotion even before the human recognizes the emotion they are feeling.  As “horse people”, we tend to agree.  Horses can be very in tune with our body language although we aren’t convinced about the “before the human recognizes the emotion they are feeling” part.
