I totally know what you mean. The other day I went to go get my mare, and when I got to the field she looked at me before deliberately turning away and walking through a huge puddle that extended through the whole field like a little river so I couldn't get across to her without walking through it- and I didn't have my boots with me. My mare thought is was hilarious, I'm sure. She stared at me the entire time, and once I finally went across, she jogged right over to me so I could put her halter on.
That is just the rule. That is why I spoil mine with treats, an apple peel or even a piece of bread. When I call, they come running but I had better have a treat.
I think they do that when they feel shorted in the treat department.
HAHA! he needs you to be in shape for him!
They have a radar that can read your intention. If you were just checking fence, etc., there they are, under your feet or in your face. Going for a ride, ten miles away up hill!
I always pass on yourcomments to Major. He loves to hear them!
