Today I watched the movie War Horse and made me think...In that movie you see how a man connects with a horse and the horse with him. You can also see
how that horse will make decisions that affects others....even an other horse.
Some of us know Mr Ed and I can remember that he was the smartest horse I had ever seen. But when I got older I fortunately did understand that Mr Ed
is not that
brilliant. Neither are the pinguins, fish, bears, dogs and birds who played a leading role in movies.
What about dolphins? People say that these animals are the smartest creatures other than man on our planet. Because scientist say they are, I believe
they are. But in what way I have no idea...same with horses.
But what about horses, really? I never owned a horse and the only one time I did ride a horse it turned out to be a pony. So I have no idea what it is
with that animal that horse lovers do seem to have with them.
When horses play a role in movies like westerns they are most of the time characterized as smart animals that have a bond with their owner and have a
mind of their own.
I would like to know in what way horse owners appreciate this animal...are they smarter than the average dog and how would a person know that you can
trust a horse?
Or am I completely wrong and are horses not that very special.
PS I dedicate my 100th thread to all war horses.
