Dusty and his friend, Mark Peterson, are truly breaking the language barrier in the animal world, far exceeding widely held beliefs on animal intelligence and capacity for language and communication. Dusty’s grasp for the human language and use of tools is proof of that. The Great Apes have always been regarded as one of the only species of animal to use tools on a regular basis. This horse, has now blown that out of the water. Through his special style of training and communication, Peterson is teaching us all how to get the most out of any relationship while bringing joy and good will to all who meet his fun loving horse Dusty.
