Takota is a horse of phases.
Not surprising–he’s in a new situation, being asked to think in ways he hasn’t done before, and being asked to respect manners and boundaries that he shows no signs of previously encountering and no signs of accepting gracefully.
(As these are safety manners between horse and human, they’re not negotiable.)
