    This reminds me of playing with my dog–I couldn’t catch him, either!

  11. Years ago a similar game was played with my young pup.Only the horse was my playful five year old black thoroughbred stallion. The object of contention was a carrot my pup had. The stallion would leap into the air and go to his knees reaching for that carrot. No one was injured or even hurt a little bit — the pup grew up to die of old age and so did the stallion. I miss them both.

    I never even imagined this in my wildest dreams … a pup and a horse playing “Keep Away” (not “Tag,” actually).
    Wonderfoal, even.

  13. it’s like everytime the dog stops to let the horse catch up he’s saying “neener, neener, neener, you can’t catch me” – little does he know that horse would probably run him over at full speed! love this video!
