Horses in the study tried to influence human behavior using their eyes, proving that they understand intentions can be communicated using gestures. Horses join the ranks of some primates, dolphins, reef fish and corvids (the family of birds that include crows, rooks and jays) with this ability. Dogs are the first domesticated species to show the ability to manipulate human attention.......
