Picking up attitude?

Do horses pick up anger in there handler?

This may sound weird, but I'm not lying.

Okay my filly was fine with me on the ground becuase I was lounging her and doing groundwork and I stopped her and she came up to me and faced me and this guy came over to the stable and walked up to us. Now I was mad at him becuase of the things he does but anyhoo! I was really pissed at him and when he walked up and said "Well hello Janie Belle!" that horse laid back her ears and shyd away from him and looked at me as if to say:
"Get this man away from me mom!"

It was the weirdest thing and after that I cheaked her all over to see if I could find any pain or discomfort, but she was fine.

Creepy, but cool!

yes horses do pick up on body language. they can pick up the bodylanguage of if your scared or angry. i always find this fun. if your horse is really receptive to your body langauage you can increase ad decrease their speeds by stiffening andrelaxing your body.
