Horses will flee; cattle may fight

Have you ever wondered which is smarter: cows or horses? I think they’re intelligence is about equal, but their behavior is different. Here’s what I mean:. Horses’ primary protection from predators is flight. In the wild, when a pack of coyotes approaches, horses will flee.
