I had a mare that was in love with a friends gelding. They were joined at the hip, all the time. They would call to each other if one was away for a bit. One day my friend decided to move her horse elsewhere and my mare was lost. There were several other horses there but not her friend. Luckily, her friend returned after a few months and they immediately picked up where they had left off. Their bonds are very real, that is for sure.

    Glad your guy looks so wonderful now, you are doing a great job. So nice to see him happy with his friend by his side. :)
    Thank you Inga! I agree, it is sad for them. Drifter really grieved for a while when Mack (his friend) left. What worries me now is that when May comes back around, they will be separated once again and this time for good.

    What do you do in a situation like that? He found other horses that would tolerate him eventually after Mack left, but he wasnt ever engaged with them in anyway. They never groomed him, or shared their food. It was just like a "here, we'll put up with you". How do you prepare a horse to be separated from another horse that theyve formed such a strong attachment too?

    I wish I new the answer to that. We humans just interfere to much in our animals lives. They don't ask for it, they just get what they get. I guess... so do most humans. We just have to take each day as it is offered and do with it the best we can.

    Not everyone is in a place where they can afford multiple horses and have them all be "best friends" for life. The ones that are, are blessed beyond comprehension of the rest of us.

    Good luck with your boy. Glad he has these happy times now, until he loses his friend. Hopefully in time he will find another friend.
