I know, I wonder that too, I think I would freak out to be honest. I think it is one of those situations where you really don't know until happens.

I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.

My family came real close to stumbling onto a dead body when I was a kid. We were taking a walk down the railroad tracks with the dogs and started smelling something rotting, figured it was a deer hit on the road about 50ft away. Not wanting the dog to smell from rolling in a dead deer we called the dogs, turned around and went home. Next day they found a body next to that road that had been shot.

After the investigation the police said it was a drug deal gone bad but they didn't know who the shooter was.

^^^ Ick! That would be nasty! I have been told that human flesh rotting smells different than roadkill, maybe not? Either way the dogs want to roll in it!

Yep, humans do smell different...even certain animals smell different. Dogs smell different from cattle and they smell different than deer.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yeah, it did smell different and we commented on that but never did give a thought to it being human. We said deer just because we never gave a thought to it being anything else.
