I live out in the boondocks myself, and one of Henry's best buddies is a little paint horse colt. They run and play and the little horse whinnies for Henry all the time! I don't let Henry loose too often, but we hike through all kinds of pastures, semi wilderness, etc. I do live in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, after all. I actually live in the valley, and the serious peaks are about 45 minutes away. Henry's been up on the trails with me and loves it. He's a serious mountaineer, lol.
