okay...this is a very heavy read {autistic people are highly detailed} so this link will take you to a 3 minute video about the author..if you love animals it is worth checking out Animals in Translation by Temple Grandin... here is a BRIEF summary of good information on what CAN SCARE prey animals when loading or moving thru alleys and chutes.

Animals in Translation author Temple Grandin


If you are a horse or agricultural animal owner and have tried to load.....well... lets say a horse into a strange trailer or trying to encourage a new colt or filly into a barn for the very first time {Brian and I have stories about that}….. This summary pertains to cattle/hogs/horses..they THINK IN PICTURES..


There is so much more to learn from this book but can only absorb in small chapters. When my brain hurts it is time to stop.
