I was out back stoking up a good fire in our crusher cone fire pit trying to get a 15 gallon barrel of water up near boiling point when I saw Tucker's ears go up, Boom's ears go up and all three go into startle mode and high tail it to the lower pasture. I figured there was a moose close by, so I snuck up to the hay shelter and sure enough there he was, a young bull. I was very happy not to be on any of the horses! I am not sure how to desensitize a horse to the presence of a moose. I know how to do it with other scary stuff, but a moose is too big to rub all over the horse. Besides, the horse would be long gone!
