At mealtimes, Milton pins his ears, chases Rodney, & is a complete pill. At non-mealtimes, Milton wants to be Rodney’s best buddy. He will follow Rodney about, bellow if left behind, and stress if asked to work alone.

Previous Horse was the same way. If food was involved, stay out of his way. Otherwise, Mathilda ran the field. She could tell the difference and acted accordingly.

Unfortunately Rodney can’t tell parse the difference between Milton at mealtimes and Milton the rest of the time. Rodney assumes the worst of Milton at all times. It’s too bad. I think they would both be happier if they could bond – just not during dinner.

Thank you for reading,
