HOLY COW! Literally!

It's a shoddy video, but this seriously amazed me. Now I know what they mean when a horse has "cow" in him!

Wow! That is incredible, shows you horses don't need a rider to do their jobs!

Wow!!!! That is very impressive! I couldn't help but notice how much freer the movement for such activities with the horse were without a rider and saddle on...horses are such a smart animal!!!

Haha, love it!!

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

What a clever horse!

Reminds me of my pony Kai, when the neighbours dog would get into our paddock he would "round" him back up to the corner of the paddock he came from and shoo him out! After a few attempts the dog gave up escaping from that corner haha.

My guy, Sunny, has some cow in him. Seems it came naturally! The broker I got him from told me this story:
He had been sound asleep, when he was awakened by sirens. A tremendous thunderstorm was raging, and s multi-car accident had taken place on the highway nearby. He was a trained emergency med aide, so he grabbed some clothes, and ran to the barn, grabbing the first horse ho could, tacking him on the fly, and off he went to assist. Thunder, lightning, sirens, flashing lights, cars, screams...all going on at once. It wasn't until everything was over that Dennis realized he had grabbed Sunny Jim, a horse he really didn't know anything about, much less if he could (or would!) be calm in an intense situation! He told me that all through this, Sun would do what he was asked without a moment's hesitation. He also had an episode with cattle getting out on that same highway, grabbed Sun, and herded them all back. Turns out the previous owner(s) had NEVER used him with cattle! Sun just knew what to do, and was completely engaged with Dennis. Cool!

My pony, Cody definitely DOES NOT have cow sense, although I have never tried. It's hard to even imagine my horse rounding up cows like that. I think he would play with them like they were toys and probably end up biting their tails or stepping on them. That's just like my horse, he does that with any pony that is smaller than him. He would probably consider a cow a strange looking painted pony.
