I have a tendency to push people, be it friends or strangers away because I have a difficult time trusting. If I can't trust these huge (or sometimes small) animals with my life (and my family's life), then who can I trust?
    ..
    My husband and I go thru this all the time...NO MORE STRESS! Lol...we can pinpont where the stress is coming from yet we keep plowing through...Smarter people would have gotten rid of it months/years ago. We are not the people that want or need the stress in our lives we are the ones that thrive in spite of it. We have our moments...believe me...but we get thru as an intact couple. I wanted the horses for our family, my hubby knew better but gave in anyways...I am the type of person that is really ok staying at home and being with my family and pets and horses...my hubby likes to socialize. I am like you... I don't trust a lot of people and I am very close to the ones I do. I don't need an entourage. I am kind of rambeling here because the stress level here at home has gotten rather high. I want to make a clear point her but it escapes me. :roll: Anyways...Thanks, glad you liked what I wrote earlier. Guess the older I get the more I realize I don't really know everything I thought I did...If I keep on like this 50 will be fabulous...cause I will have learned so much that I thought I already knew! IF I'm not crazy by then...thats always a possibility! Hee hee

    Maybe you are on to something! You know you keep picking up that horse poop. Maybe that's what is making you so philosophical or ....Maybe it has some kind of healing effect in it, so that when you are 50, you WILL be fabulous! Heck, maybe you found the cure to cancer! Or helps as a stress soother... we could bottle it and get a patent on it!!

    There ya go, that's why Dumas came into your life! So that you could find the cure to stress, cancer, pimples, the list goes on!

    When my girlfriend had to relocate to AZ she offered me her 2 geldings. My husband David was raised on a sheep farm and is an animal person but was taught that horses were expensive useless animals that cribb, dug holes, ruin fields, etc. He said we'd never have any on our farm. Well I pouted and sulked like a good wife can and he finally gave in but swore he'd never have anything to do with "those animals".
    One of the horses is DB, a 26 yr old 14h Arabian who had been abused when my friend got him. He was way under weight with open wounds and didn't trust anyone. Even during the 6 years she had him, DB never really settled in, never really trusted, was very skiddish, etc. She didn't really mind because he was just a companion to her tb. I figured I'd just feed him and work with him as much as he'd let me until old age did him in. No big deal.
    The day DB was delivered to our farm, we got him out of the trailer expecting him to panic when we released him in the pasture with the tb. Instead that horse walked directly up to my husband and laid his chin on David's shoulder. There they stood for what seemed like 5 minutes before my husband reached up and started rubbing DB's neck. That was 4 months ago. The 2 of them are now basically inseparible. If David is late getting home from work, DB catches an attitude. If he doesn't go straight to the pasture to see him, DB starts calling for him. [My friend said she's never heard him make a sound.] If we are standing in the barn or pasture together DB will come up and wedge just his head between us. And David is just as bad. He'll call to check on "his" horse, takes him running (David doesn't ride) and ignores me to spend time grooming DB. David can do anything to or with that horse. I am seeing a side of my husband that I knew was there but didn't know how to bring out.
    Things like this don't just happen. There has to be some sort of higher power that knew those 2 needed each other and the best time to bring them together. Now I just have to pray that horse lives at least another 10 15 years!
    Another great story! My husband was a "non-horse" person too. Now it has turned into a grand passion for both of us. Wonderful that DB and David found each other

    Horses are the most amazing creatures ever created. I adore them. Yes they can have a mind of their own and their own personalities but they are just plain fantastic. I love them.

    Oh yes, I think that we all wander upon our horses for a reason. Sometimes like the paso fino my sis had it is only to be the middle man until the move safely onto another home (she was totally clueless and he was too much horse for her really) and sometimes as with most of us it is to be their forever home. I know I felt it the mintue I saw the two we have now.

    Out of like 6 or 7 weanlings and yearlings our two would not be seperated, I had gone to look at the dun and this shaggy skinny ragedy sorrel mutt just wouldn't go away from the little red dun. I just knew she would end up as dog food if I left her there, if not starve to death for lack of being run off of her feed, so I brought her home, thinking she would be my horse and james could have his quarter horse (the dun - he has a thing for qh's) But guess what, he fell more in love with the shaggy mess! They were his easter surprise this year, so he didn't see them until a few days later when we went to pick them up. The first thing he asked was "Can we get a third horse?" to which I replied "What one?" "That sorry looking thing over there." as he pointed at Canela. All I could do was laugh. "that IS YOUR horse!" Then he asked so which is the other one, that red headed one?" That was our little dun Carmella he was pointing at then as they were both glued at their boney hips.

    The moral of the storey is, either he really knows me that well (and we all know men don't listen right? J/k ) or destiny was that we should both have those two exact horses. Yup, they are sent to us for a reason...
