Out of curiosity, has Jac watched you work bridle-less with other horses? If so, maybe he *is* trying to tell you something. I’m hardly an expert, but in my experience, if an animal realizes you are trying to understand their communication, they’ll try various methods to communicate what they want.
Yankee used to try to get his point across all the time, and we now have a pretty good private “language”. I sometimes ‘play dumb’ with Smudge, one of my kittens, to see what she’ll do.
LOL I guess he has given you your much needed sign !!! He wants to be like his mom. Patience Jack mommy was way ahead of you before she gave up the bit!!!
stacy it is sooo exciting and much fun reading your blog here in germany, we mostly only have good books to learn horsemanship but you are so great! my painthorse is a bit similar to jacs character and he is my best teaycher i ever had. so many tears in the beginning and now so much fun, thnak you for your videos and notes!!
Yep, that’s no whisper. Jac is shouting at you. He wants to be like a grown up. Very cute Jac. “Mr Personality”
OMgosh…. I thought you were serious at first…. lol… from reading the heading. 🙂
it looks to me like she tied him to go to bathroom and he rubbed his bridle right off lol
I think Jac is suggesting she lose the bit
I am sorry, but I dont know what I am looking at 🙁 Could you explain it to the layman in the crowd? 😉
Looks like he managed to somehow work his bridle off:)
Jennifer-I forgot to put the story below the photo! Yep, I was riding him with a rope halter on under the bridle and needed a bathroom break. I tied him up with the rope halter and when I came back I found him like this. He had rubbed the bridle off and was looking all innocent at me.
LOL brilliant job Jac… sure wish you’d had video of that one Stacey but maybe you can sneaky set one up before you have to go pee next time 🙂
Well, there is your answer…. You said he would tell you if he wanted to.
