How Intelligent are Horses?

A Letter from Our Friend Cal Price in Wyoming’s Star Valley

 

November 2010 Issue  

     Recently, as I worked about my dooryard, mowing and trimming grass, I watched my neighbor Carey, on horseback, driving cattle toward the big shed, there across the way.

     Soon, I saw that he had tied his horse to the pole fence near the shed. Apparently Carey was on foot, busy inside with the cattle.

     After several moments, when again I came around the corner of the house where I could see the shed, the little horse called out, whinnying loudly in my direction.

     As I continued my task, I thought, “How interesting. Was he calling out to me?” Again, when I came around the corner, he called, this time tossing his head in my direction while dancing about.

     This really got my attention. I decided to disappear from sight once more for a few moments, then return to see what would happen.

     I was not surprised when again he called out loudly, tossing his head and dancing about for a third time. I knew I had to investigate. I crossed the distance, perhaps seventy or eighty yards to the shed.

 There I found Carey clutching a badly swollen hand and forearm. He had two six-hundred-pound bull calves confined in the chute where he had attempted to remedy some problems when he had been injured.

     I reported how I had been alerted to the situation. After these several weeks, we are still marveling!
