Spirit taught him that friendship transcends all species, she and Koda used to run all over the horse field together. She would even lay down to see him.
Having the horses also helped him to learn many basic commands as well as fun ones for him such as go get the horses and bring them back for supper. Chasing them was great fun for him.
Now that the horses are gone I can tell that he misses them especially whenever I move around the horse equipment as he gets all excited thinking we are going riding.
Have any of your pets had some unlikely teachers?
