Fiona, my Irish Draught, is the same way. If something unsettles her... She investigates. It's hilarious since I'm used to the horses turning tail and running (Harley actually does this!) Nope, not Fi, if she doesn't know what it is, she'll blow all the way up to it just to investigate.
I often forget how old Fiona is because she's mature beyond her years.
I don't think I'll ever buy a smaller breed again. Draft/Perch/IDH are amazing.
