Dogs and Horses

Here’s another period piece from the Popular Science archives. This one comes from September 1940 :

A dog leading a horse on a rope isn’t a new idea.  And… it’s also not necessarily a good idea.  This is not a trick to try with a green horse or a poorly-trained dog.  A quick search of the intertubes brings up lots of video — most of it, IMO, showing excellent examples of what not to do.  The clip below was the only exception I found.  It shows a small, quiet dog leading a patient horse calmly around the yard – then cheerfully stopping when the horse appears to get tired of the game.  It’s very cute but — please don’t try this at home!
