Mind Games with Milton

It shouldn’t be this much fun to outsmart a horse.

Milton knows groundtie. Mostly. I drop his rope on the ground. He knows to stand. However, if I threaten him with something dire, such as hoof oil, he will slowly woozle sideways. I am aware this is coming, so I stomp on the end of the leadrope as he drifts off.

He gets a look of utter amazement. His thought bubble says, ‘She’s nowhere near me and yet, I stop. How is she exerting this magical force over me?’

I giggle.

Thank you for reading,
