LOL! When I saw that he's wasn't "tied" with a knot I was wondering how in the world is this going to work?! I love how he glances towards the camera before he starts like he's making sure they're getting it and then he walks towards the camera after for his close- up :) Seriously cute!

No doubt that he knows exactly what he is doing! I live the way he alternated each side to get it over his ear.
As for how he learned I wonder if he got his head under the tie and panicked and the chain pulled the halter off and he learned from that ?

Should be a good one to trick train!

What a smarty pants

I love the way he knows he has to do it slowly and put the right amount of pressure behind each ear to get it to move.

Just loved it, what a smart horse. It's like he knows the camera is watching, so cute. Thanks for sharing.

Too funny I have a mare that can untie herself and I no longer even bother tying her in the trailer. She can also open any gate and we have to chain and lock them all.

My mare figured that out as a 2 yr old! She does the same thing with fly masks. Smart little lady! She uses the stall board to remove her halter.

The good news is she doesn't do it unless I leave her by herself for a long period of time. Usually I reward waiting for me with a treat so she is no longer so impatient to leave!
