Horses meet dog

My daughter Katie's boyfriend has a fine young dog named Cali and she got to come to the barn with us on Saturday. We had tried this once before, but Cali barked and stepped in front of me when a horse started towards me, so had been returned to the car to wait for us to finish tending the horses that day. I know she was being protective, but there are lessons dogs need when they come around horses. Like not lunging at them or barking, for example.

She's a quick study, apparently. On Saturday, she did much better and our two horses took her in stride without any trouble. Bar, in fact, got his face cleaned quite nicely while I was off saddling Lena Rey.
