When I bring Riv in at night, there's always some other horses out. Usually, at least one horse says "oh boy, it's time to come get dinner!" and comes up to their gate. When horses come trotting or cantering up to the gate/front fence, Riv FLIPS OUT. He basically goes "holy sh!t, they're coming to get me!" and tries to run forward or backward or in circles.
I don't think he understands that he's a horse. And that they're horses. And that he does the EXACT SAME THING when he wants to come in (hurrying to the gate). WTF? It's not like he doesn't do this every.single.day.
My next horse WILL be smart.
