Why we love them...
There's a saying that goes "If you're lucky enough to have horses, you're lucky enough." I completely agree. Every day I ride or even just hang out with my horses, I consider myself blessed. A few weeks ago, I asked our Facebook readers what they loved most about these amazing animals, and here were some of my favorite responses:
"They are absoluely the best therapy I've ever had."
"I love seeing their breath on a cool frosty morn."
"Wow! Don't think I could pick just one thing... When they're treated right, their hearts, strength, the devotion and trust they show us, and yes, I love the way they smell! But there is sooo much more..."
"I like the companionship. I can go out and talk to my horses and they stand right there and listen to me."
"Sounds crazy, but I love the smell of a sweaty horse!"
"Patient, forgiving, strong, sensitive, willing, trusting, loyal, fun, beautiful, aromatic, warm, soft, majestic, calming. They are a huge part of my happiness and health and always will be."
