Children Can Be Useful..
I've discovered that kids can be really helpful when it comes to desensitizing horses! My son is pretty in tune with our animals, and when he does something weird my critters seem to say, "Oh, its only Brett" and get curious rather than afraid - even Smokey who tends to spook at everything else.
Here are a couple of recent silly photos and videos.
The video of Guinness and my son with his bike shows only the second time that Guinness had ever seen a bike. (The first time was a couple of minutes before when he chased Brett around the field - but unfortunately I didn't have the camera on!)
These videos capture Guinness' personality pretty well. ;-)
