Our Shadow does this, but we have discovered that
it is a game with him. As long as we play his game, he is easy to catch. We walk
into the pasture, the herd walks up to us. Shadow comes close enough to get his

David, being new to horses, grabbed him by the tail
one day. The game was on. Shadow justs walks around the field towing David by
his tail, as happy as can be. Eventually, Shadow stops and David halters him.
Game over. Score one for the horse. He caught himself a human.

Shadow towing David who had Jazzy by the collar dragging her along. A very odd
