This morning Palomine model Ebony ventured into the Channel 10 studios at Pyrmont to take part in an experiment to see which animal really is the smartest.
Animal behavourist Laura Vissaritis of Dognitive Therapy explained how a dogs make their humans work for them, and will tend to turn to their master for help with getting what they want.
Horses can very quickly learn a cue to receive a reward, a fact which Ebony demonstrated very nicely by almost instantaneously learning to touch her nose on the 'magic wand' to gain a slice of apple.
Cats on the other hand...
Thanks to Channel Ten and Studio 10 for proving what we have always known, that horses are the smartest and the best!
