On the Trust/Don’t Trust Scale, one thing to weigh is whether a person
1. Doesn’t like animals and
2. Whether animals dislike that person.
Usually, they are one and the same. Especially watch out for people who do not like dogs. They have no heart. People who do not like cats are often (usually, in my experience) control freaks and manipulators.
People who don’t like horses are usually just ignorant. *heh* If they refuse to learn better, they are willfully ignorant, and willful ignorance is elective stupidity. Such persons should only be trusted with small things. Very small things. 😉
(Frankly, I even have problems with folks who don’t like skunks. 😉 )
