I love how my horse loves to work. After a workout ill be leading him out of the ring and he'll just plant his feet and look at me as if to say "Are we done? I havnt even started yet!" He always wants to work! And whenever he sees me coming to his stall with his tack his eyes just twinkle and he lets out a HUGE whinny!
I feel like he understands me when I talk to him. I'll talk to him about stuff I'm worried about and you know.. all that stuff you can't talk to anyone else about and he'll just rest his head on my shoulder and close his eyes while I have a conversation with him or sing his favorite song "Candy Girl" by the Archies
He also used to know how to unlock his stall bolt and one time I saw him out in the courtyard (usually he escaped when not many people were at the stable that day) and id yell out his name in a stern voice and he would look at me with the cutest look and then he would actually go back and walk into his stall and close the door with his muzzle! It was the cutest thing I've ever seen and I never even trained him to do it.
I just love animated, and humanlike he is. But mostly I love how he enjoys life...
