It is our bonding time and they love it as much as I do. Problem is, there is a little jealousy from time to time so I'll get "hollered" at for spending too much time with any one horse!
I am so with you Arab Mama..
I had the best time 2 nights ago, in the cool darkness, with my Solei, Chevelle, and Rowan, all snorfling my neck, just standing together doing absolutely nothing but enjoying each others' company. The universe can't beat that.
Imagine, keep spending time with them, they'll remember, and time on the ground establishes trust and partnership, even if you think you're doing "nothing."
