Horse Language...or Animal Language?

People often say that animals know where to go when they need help. I don't know if that's me, or whether I just have a canny ability to turn up at a point where an animal is in need of help or rescuing...anyway, recently I've noticed that when I'm interacting with these other animals (whether it's dogs, cats, or the 4th herd of cows that have wandered out into the main road and I'm the first person on scene!) that I instictively put my horse knowledge into practice...and I get the same response from the animal that I would from a horse. Many of the aspects that we cover in our horse teaching seem just as applicable to other species of animal - what we are developing is an awareness of elements that all animals relate to...
