Appaloosa horse loves being serenaded by Native American Flute

Cruise the horse is a very appreciative audience to his Marty Calhoun’s flute playing and has the cutest reaction every time his dad plays a piece of native american music.

In the adorable video below, Marty is in front of Cruise’s stall in the barn. Marty obviously enjoys playing the Native American flute for his horse as much as Cruise enjoys listening to it!

Marty reveals that Cruise is an Appaloosa (a Native American breed of horse) and says that Cruise loves being serenaded by Native American Flute.

Marty adds, “A little factoid; his [Cruise’s] niece is the spotted horse that Leonardo Dicaprio rode in the movie The Revenant.

The Native American flute makes a distinctive sound, which is often referred to as “warbling.” Maybe it’s this warble that Cruise really loves. And as it turns out, Cruise is not the only horse to enjoy flute music.

The Appaloosa is an American horse breed best known for its colorful spotted coat pattern.

There is a wide range of body types within the breed, stemming from the influence of multiple breeds of horses throughout its history.

Each horse’s color pattern is genetically the result of various spotting patterns overlaid on top of one of several recognized base coat colors.

Today, the Appaloosa is one of the most popular breeds in the United States; it was named the official state horse of Idaho in 1975.

It is best known as a stock horse used in a number of western riding disciplines, but is also a versatile breed with representatives seen in many other types of equestrian activity.

Appaloosas have been used in many movies; an Appaloosa is the mascot for the Florida State Seminoles. Appaloosa bloodlines have influenced other horse breeds, including the Pony of the Americas, the Nez Perce Horse, and several gaited horse breeds.
