My horse won't talk!

I recently bought this horse. He won't speak to me. He just stands there with a dumb look on his face. He doesn't even say thank you when I give him an apple. I suspect he talks to the Hispanic guy who cleans the barn every day. How can I get my horse to talk?

I don't know. My lease horse talks to me all the time. Tells me to get more carrots, complains when the ground is too rocky, tells me when my outfit doesn't match, and really keeps me up to date on all the pasture gossip.

Maybe he doesn't talk to you because he only speaks Spanish? Try this, say , "Hola, como estas?" and see if that will get him to open up to you.

I agree with the trying Spanish, he may just not understand English.

Are you talking to him? Maybe he needs the silent treatment for awhile. I would also recommend searching for the "Mare Glare" thread on here- if you can perfect your own glare, maybe you can give him a taste of his own medicine.

Maybe he's mute? Watch his blink patterns for Morse code...

If I listen closely before I open the barn door in the morning, I can hear my two geldings talking to each other, but every time I open the door they never say another word. I have even heard them, a time or two, talking to the cats.

Frankly, I am tired of it!

Yes... He simply DOESN'T appear to know any English. I suggest saying 'Hola! Que tal? Te gustaria una manzana?'
If he doesn't reply, you will have to give up hope and send him to a horse trainer, who might get him talking again.

Perhaps he's a dumba$$ and not a horse at all?
