When Felix saw our neighbors horses, he stood still for one moment and went complete nuts in the other. I’m sure he saw horses for the first time. Maybe he thought, it would be good to scare this big and massive dogs before they start to gobble him down in one piece. Sometimes Duke Felix is a bigmouth and tries very hard to become king. It took me a couple of days until I could keep him calm and at ease nearby horses. Meanwhile it’s no problem anymore, when I stop for a while to take some pictures of them. Now we work on the next level of calmness. Soon, he will not only tolerate horses as long as they on their meadows and stay fenced in, but also when our neighbors drive by in their sulkies. I have to watch him and calm him down immediately before he tries to bark at them and possibly hunt them. Sometimes I’m glad, that he is too small to see everything through the jungle of grass, where he is inviting every tick to take a sip from his blood. Btw. he loves digging. One day he will break through Earth's core and bring back a kangaroo.
