And Luke in 2007 when I fell in love with him because he followed me around looking over my shoulder at the camera.
When Luke was a baby the size of a dog, he was treated like he was a dog. he grew up, no one could ride him, he thought he was a dog, he became dangerous because he wanted to sit in your lap, or jump up and put his hooves around your neck, or play like he did when he was small. a horse of over 1000 pounds can cause real damage. Because of this, Robert took him on to train him to be a horse, he is now a horse and not a dog, but still has the tendency to act like a pet.
Last week as I walked past him he reached out and grabbed the shirt on my shoulder and pulled, I managed to pull loose laughing like a crazy person and he thought lets play, he bumped my shoulder with his shoulder, Kathy thumped him and made him get away. You do not want a horse that big playing like a dog. Robert has turned him into a really good trail horse.
