Those truely dumb horses
So Lucas is special, he is the dumbest animal I have met, I have cats and dogs who have more smarts. Heck most humans I meet are more smart, even in a special needs school.
So there are advantages, he looks to me for every single answer. Well it is water Lucas, the same water you have drunk every day for a year.
It's a stall Lucas, you need to walk through the door to get to your food, the same way you have and looked at me this way every day for over a year.
It's a saddle Lucas, every time you freak out as I walk funny, then you smell it and you are fine with me putting it on your back.
At my old barn they had an electric fence, every single time he would run into the fence and get a shock when I arrived. Then he would push too hard to get to me. EVERY single time for over a year.
He lives in a la la land, I can almost hear him singing it. I seriously think my horse has an IQ of about 40. I have done a lot of ground work with him, so he knows when I tell him it's ok that it really is, but it is a never ending reminder.
Anyone else have a dumber than a box of nails horse?
