Hey buddy! Wanna be friends??

Our young horse couldn't resist the opportunity to check this cat out.  As he turned his head, Tipster raised his tail.

Now we might think this is rude, but in the cat world, it's a greeting of some sort.  They perform this ritual when a dog comes close also.  

A horse that's interested enough to investigate a cat, uses his eyes, ears and nose to make this decision:  friend?? or foe!!

If a horse turns his butt towards you, he's either avoiding you, or he's likely to kick!! Tipster can thank his lucky stars.  The horse chose to give him a sniff!!
