Who Let the horses out?

When I was a kid, my parents had a small hobby farm. I would have been four, one summer, when Mom went out the door to hang out some laundry, and a pony came in and started eating an apple pie that was cooling on the cupboard. She had left the door opened of course. If you watch the video below, you will see this horse doesn't care whether or not the door has been left opened.

The video along with the article was posted on the Huffington Post. You can read it here.

Dr. Evelyn Hanggi of the Equine Research Foundation says:

"Common beliefs maintain that horses have a brain the size of a walnut; horses do not think; horses are merely conditioned-response animals; horses cannot generalize; horses have no sense of concept," she said in a 2011 report on Horsetalk.co.nz. "In reality, horses manage not only ordinary daily cognitive tasks but mental challenges as well."
