Cobra is one of our wild mustangs who doesn’t like to be touched by humans. However, if you respect him and understand how to position your body and contain your energy, then he likes to explore YOU.
My friend Carlotta is visiting from Germany and after hanging out with the herd for a month and getting to know them, she gives us a demo of exactly what this conversation with Cobra looks and feels like.
If you’ve been following his story, you’ll know that Cobra was a stallion on the range for 7 years until he was rounded up and gelded. His experience is that humans are pretty dangerous and brutal. But we’re giving him a different experience – and if he never wants to be touched, that’s fine too.

Cobra is definitely one of my new favs. Love that he is getting to experience a different glimpse into how humans can interact with him on his terms. Jini you seem to attract/find/surround yourself with humans that seem to absorb and resonate with how to Listen to the horse. I am putting the horse listeners energy out there and have met a newerish neighbor that seems to want to explore this path. She is new to horses so her mind is not predisposed/conditioned to a lot of clutter. She warms my heart with her love and peace she wants her rescued abused 4 year old horse to now experience. She seeks my opinion and help and I have offered to try and work with him to get him comfy with hoof trimming. We take it super slow and at his pace and of course at Liberty and he is starting to really trust our interactions. Horses never cease to amaze me at there willingness to give the human race another chance to show patience and love. ✌🏼❤️🐴
That’s wonderful Michelle – I’m so pleased for you! I know you’ve felt isolated for a long time, so really glad that is shifting for you. Funnily enough, I purposely look for people who have zero experience with horses to be my barn help. It is much easier to teach them how to be in a mutually-respectful relationship with horses than it is with a ‘horse person’ 🙂
