The Canine and The Equine Meet!!!

So I took my dog the other day to meet my horse and well the other horses there -plus he had the freedom of running free in the open fields unlike living in the city. I wasn't sure how this was going to go, because we do have police horses and once we were passing by them my little dog started to bark and kind of growl at them. Lol you could imagine the horses looking down at him like "WHAT could you possibly do to ME!?!?"
Before I took him to meet my horse, I went to the horses outside that were close to the fence. I honestly should of video taped it!!!!!! but no camera :-(  As we inch closer to the horses my dogs eyes were literally big circles O_O WHAT IS THAT!?! and the horses on the other side of the fence were looking at him and trying to sniff him. My dog stood up on his hind feet and was trying to smell them, one of the horses got closer to Saba (my dog) and my dog literally jumped 4 feet back!!! LOOOL. But his curiosity got the best of him and he came back to sniff the horse, this time he got closer and seemed to be okay with it.
That was relief to me, and went inside for Saba to meet Apollo, this time Saba didn't care nor did my horse( he's use to dogs anyway). I took them both out to the grass, so the horse can eat and Saba can walk around. My dog literally looked like he was in paradise!! He absolutely LOVED being there!! I can't blame him, after all he is a dog and where we go is just green huge fields.
I honestly think my dog is a natural barn dog ;-P.

  2. Why did it react so aggressively against the police horses in particular? Are they special in some way?

  6. I'd be nervous that the horse would step on the dog by mistake or something.

  8. it's good that horses generally don't instinctively think of dogs as predators, unlike other livestock. :)
