You mean...you don't do this already?
I find the key to a friendly horse is to bite about a 4" diameter section of hair off of the horse's rump about once a month. Unfortunately, the hair gets stuck in between my teeth, and it takes forever
to floss out!
I also had mechanical rabbit ears surgically installed...toggle switch left for 'annoyed' and right for 'mad as hell'. Last week the wires got crossed, and my ears just started spinning - the horses didn't know what to do! So I licked their manes to calm them down, but now I have some weird stomach ache.
It isn't easy being a friend to your horse...but I wouldn't want to "blindly rape the intrinsic spirit of God's greatest masterpiece in the animal kingdom"!
