1. Is it correct to say:


"I patted the horse on the head."



2. And does the sentence above mean the same as:


"I made a fuss at the horse."

Christine Christie1. Is it correct to say:"I patted the horse on the head."

Yes.

Christine Christie2. And does the sentence above mean the same as:"I made a fuss at the horse."

No, and that is unidiomatic. You made a fuss of the horse, but that expression is practically unknown in modern US English. You could say you fussed over the horse, but that is unspecific though it might well involve patting.
