On the heels of the successful holiday film, War Horse, Carissa Wickens, University of Delaware Cooperative Extension equine specialist and assistant professor of animal science, was recently interviewed by National Geographic to get more information about the range of equine emotions portrayed in the movie. In the interview, Wickens touches on horses and their ability to remember humans, how horses react to fear, and how horses can form strong social bonds with other horses.
