What does Blue see?

I fed the horses a bale of alfalfa tonight.  Now, Blue is usually the biggest eater of the bunch, and nothing distracts him from his supper.  Tonight, though, he seemed to see ghosts in two different directions.  Notice the other horses are calmly eating; they don't seem to see a thing.

Before I took this video, I stood beside Blue gazing in the same direction as he was, but I never saw any kind of movement.

Mighty peculiar.  And he was still exhibiting the same behavior when I came inside.

(Also notice Libby, my baby, laying back her ears toward Sassy to make her move... she is becoming a bully!)

Humm, he definately saw or heard something you wasn't aware of. If you figure anything out let us know. Helen

Maybe he was just remembering summer and his pasture!

Animals seem to hear things humans don't...or so I have read somewhere....and then again...Blue may just be remembering warmer times...bless his heart....Hugs from KY...Ora

Precious does hat. I will look and look and see nothing. Pat says she is hearing boogers.

I think they can see things we can't--plus they smell things better than we do, too.

Cats are the best at freaking me out, staring at something until you are sure the Boogey Man must be there!

I never ever really felt the deep desire for a horse until I watched this video....Man he is a magnificent animal.   I thought he might have been hearing ice falling in the woods that you couldn't hear.

Spooky!  There must have been bogeys out that night.  Great video!
