Now you can get a horse to work a cow through good training but he will never have that natural cow sence. Your best bet is to train the horse to be responsive to your aids and go from there.
I agree with this response completely! I haven't seen a lot of the world but I know from what I've seen so far that cow sense cannot be made, it's in the blood. I've seen horses go through reining training only to find that the horse won't work a cow for it's life! A horse has to have the drive! But that could be your horse, you never know until you try! So get him responsive to cues and try it out!
Good luck and keep us posted!!
