Husband/horse bonding

My husband has taken a liking to Patrick, the horse I've been taking lessons on. He actually asked me to go to the tack store to get horse treats! During my lessons, he goes around and says hello to all the horses. He is sooo cute! I hope he stays interested!!

Here's the pictures of him feeding Patrick the specially bought treats.

Here's me riding Patrick.

Thanks for looking!

Lucky! I took my husband with me to look at the colt I just bought, and he gave it a few pats and pretty much said 'Whatever you want' when I asked what he thought. He thinks my Tovero paint is kinda plain!

However, he showed a ton of interest in the donkey that's being boarded at the stable we chose. He thought it was the cutest, coolest little guy. Thanks, hubby, haha.

That's really nice, and you are lucky that he is showing an interest. My hubby will help if I need something, other than that he just wants a phone call when I am done riding so he knows I am ok.

He has zero interest in riding, grooming or anything else other than supporting me with my interest. Which is a good thing, and I am grateful.

My husband is funny with horses. I havent owned or ridden since we have been together. I am starting to get back into it and have talked to him about buying a horse next year. At first he was like "great, something else to pay for". But now after a couple of months, he has actually told me that he is looking forward to it and that he wants a "donkey" (thats what he likes to call

What an adorable photo! He looks so happy. Same smile that a little kid at a petting zoo has when the goat licks the food out of his hand.

awe! that's awesome. My mom moved my whole family from our nice, very "housewives" type neighborhood to a farm in the country. My dad doesn't like horses at all, but my mom and i have a huge love for them. My dad tried telling us that riding was easy and football was more dangerous, not a good idea dad! So we put him up on one of our horses (who was trained, but still not a point and steer ride) and we told my dad to show us up. He turned him and started kicking like a show off, even after being told not to. Naturally, the horse took off and dumped him a few feet away. He was in a riding ring and the horse was nice enough to dump in the sofest sand. We laughed about it for a while, but now he definitely has respect for my sport.

Aw! That is so cool, I hope he shows more interest in it to! It's so funny to see such a big guy with a little kid smile. My boyfreind supports me as well, and wants to see me suceed. He wasn't much of a rider until he met me. He also has strong arms, but your man could show him up! ;)

Kirk has gone out on several trail rides on a calm horse and loves it. He is a sucker for cute little mares and fillies. He thinks they are so precious lol.
