Horse Behavior Basics
I'm curious about whether there is already a comprehensive list that exists, in bullet or paragraph/chapter form, that discusses horse behavior basics. To elaborate... I see a lot of people that claim they do X to a horse because horses do X to each other in the wild, or naturally, in a herd atmosphere... not all of which seem to make sense to me if I try to put myself into a horse's shoes (har har, pun). Some responses I've seen about why we humans do a particular behavior/action, seem to be more of an excuse for humans, than for the benefit of the horse itself, or seem to exist as an incorrectly drawn correlation regarding horse behavior.
What I'm curious in, is a thread or open discussion, perhaps starting with bullet points, on observations of how horses actually interact with each other. I've seen some threads on what a horse with 'good manners' should look like, with some tips on what a person should do to have 'good manners' around their horse. I specifically want to be able to see what horses do to and with each other and what it means to a horse.
To start... maybe somebody could go into depth on the positioning and movements of EARS, or by bringing up an observation they've seen with their horses, with guesses/theories as to why it happened, and a follow up as to how it was resolved (or the end result). Have you noticed certain behavior from your horse, and learned to use it back at them? (e.g. My parrot has several different types of clicks... I can discern between the types. Most people think they're all the same... but it can be the difference between a playful 'what's going on!' and 'I'm about to bite you if you don't get out of my face'. He responds in kind, if I use them appropriately back at him).
Participation in general is very much appreciated. Videos and pictures are welcome :)
