If monkeys are this smart….then are horses?

I’ve read where horses can understand 800 words (if you train them). I’ve also read where horses can tell if a light turns green (if you train them)

Obviously any horse person knows when you want to catch a pony who doesn’t want to get caught…you just start feeding another horse in the paddock.  Jealousy…

Well…watch what happens in this experiment.

  1. If you want to think outside the box on how smart horses are read the book Beautiful Jim Keys http://www.amazon.com/Beautiful-Jim-Key-History-Smartest/dp/B002DMJUF4
    This horse could read, count, do arithmetic, make change, etc. He toured venues such as Madison Square and the World Fair at the turn of the 20th Century and was tested by Harvard professors to try to prove it was trickery and could not. His owner a former slave was a self taught vet and claimed you could teach a horse with patience and kindness. This book totally changed the way I think about horses! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beautiful_Jim_Key
