Back 40, that's crazy! I've heard of people doing that and it's just ridiculous. I don't know what's more disappointing - them stooping so low, or them feeling like they HAVE to stoop so low. :/
Anyways, I took Mr. Henny for a walk today. He saw a lot of horse eating monsters(rocks) and did a lot of looking and prancing in place. There were also some dogs barking and beating against a wooden fence. Being able to hear them and not see them is what freaked him out the most, I think. And then he spooked at a fence.
He had no problem with a bike whizzing by, though. Strange, strange horse. A lot more walks are in order to get his nerves under control. He became a lot more spooky after his accident. I can't blame the poor guy. His left eye looks down a little now so he doesn't have the best vision. ): But he was a very good boy about spooking in place and walked over the cement drainage ditch again with no problem. :)
