But Solly has an amazing herdside manner, completely at ease amongst cows--and they with him. When ridden into a herd to sort out an animal, he's so affable that they rarely get ruffled. We've never seen Solly get impatient and lay his ears back or nip at a recalcitrant cow. He gets the job done with a minimum of stress and offense. "It's almost like the cows think he's one of them," Hubby says.
