    Default What is the evolutionary advantage for a horse....

    to be able to recognize that their handler has just put on a latex glove

    She's never had one of "those" exams so it's not like she was expecting anything bad. But she had to completely check it out before I could continue doing anything else with her (The glove was for putting on Swat)

    So.. what things does your do that would leave Darwin scratching his head?

    Tape measures! He won't let one near him. I have to use a bit of baling twine and then measure that.

    And if someone is setting a course with one of those monster tape measures?

    If I had "the glove" and a bottle of Excaliber, my gelding would look back with that "Ooo! This is going to be fun!" expression.
