    That was so funny! What a good horse to remain as calm as he did. Loved the shot looking between the horse's ears at the elk! I just sent it to my trail riding friends.

    chocomare, that's exactly what I was thinking when I watched the video.

    Also, what a good horse. But can't horses tell dead things from live things by smell? The horses at a place I used to board wouldn't walk past this one pickup truck because (we thought) it smelled like the dead deer it had been hauling on a recent hunting trip.

    So the horse may have been startled by it moving, but unlike us, I don't think the horse thought it was dead, right?

    I think the horse was surprised by it's heathy rack! Good lord... Ee's been 'round fer a while". I think Frodo would have lost his mind and Bugs would have been in the next county in 2 seconds, with or without me.

    Don't really know what the horse was thinking, but it was probably pretty surprised when the thing moved. That was pretty funny...What on earth was an elk doing taking a nap next to a building and a road??

    Laughed me arse off on that one! The wildly bouncing camera was funny as hell, but also impressive too! Because it didn't stop with the rider on the ground or end up showing a 50 mph trip down that road.
    The horse might not have recognized it as an animal at all, but a rock that sat up with antlers on it's head. Probably smelled an animal in the air and couldn't place it, was probably very surprised to see a rock that smelled like an elk come to life.

    Is the elk wearing a collar? It sure looks like it.

    arabhorse - It's a radio collar. Probably an elk from a release site - they often use radio collars to track them to see if they leave the release site.

    I think I'm pretty sure this one left its release site!

    That horse was a pretty good sport - I was out the other day and my horse was attacked by a donkey and an tubby mini living in an overgrown field. All he saw coming at him were ears, then the donkey brayed. We Were Done For The Day. I can only imagine what he'd have done if he'd seen an Elk!

    Okay, that makes sense.

    I don't know what Cloud would do if confronted by a donkey, but unlike Conny, he's not the least bit afraid of minis.

    Heck, he's not afraid of big, inflatable slides and moonbounces, kids whacking him in the face with balloons, inebriated adults hanging on him, or even little kids running behind and under him.

    Deer now, he's very cautious about. Not exactly spooky, but cautious. That elk may have been too much for him to handle!

    Fourh mom, love your signature line. Tis so very true....

    A couple of years ago I was out riding in some very cold weather in my english saddle. Murphy had been acting up a lot and I thought it was because of a coyote that was about a quarter mile from us. I was riding down a draw headed for home when five elk came flying down the hill about 100 feet in front of us. I was thinking "oh crap, I'm too cold and tired to stay on in this saddle if he bolts". Murphy was a good boy though and didn't move an inch although he adopted his "giraffe" stance and snorted quite a bit. The elk passed right in front of us (a beautiful sight!), went up the next hill and over a ridge. Once they were out of sight, Murphy finally lost it but his tantrum didn't last long. I now trail ride in a western saddle. Gotta love that horn!

    The first time I watched the video I didn't have any sound on and laughed so hard.

    I laughed even harder the second time with sound!

    Thanks for sharing, that was ridiculously funny!
