Just made things so much better, because he would see things that I had missed that were worth seeing.
You are very lucky.
Hey that makes all of us with this type of horse feel better! Lol
Seriously tho, I bet there is some truth to it, as the smarter horse is naturally going to be more observant. My husband's gelding is a steady eddy type, but not a big looker at all... And I wouldn't call him the brightest bulb on the tree.. sweetest, and kindest and biggest hearted, yes...
But the intelligent one in our 2 is def. My young mare who thoroughly enjoys watching everything and would probably throw a fit if I told her to stop, esp. When it harms nothing. :)
Yeay for happy, healthy, observant horses!
