So as some of you know, I've recently brought home an Anglo Arab gelding (We thought he was a QH/Arab cross but the breeders say otherwise) named Rebel.
We've only had him for about four days and already he's following me. I can call him and he'll come running to me. He's acting like a skinny dark bay version of Jester o.o
It took me a while to get a good bond with any of my horses, let alone this brand new gelding that came from a not-so-good home where he was starved, unloved, and groomed only before he was worked. And now he's acting like an overgrown puppy. I can open his stall and he'll follow me right out and to the pasture. He'll nicked at me as soon as he hears the door to the house open...but it's only me. If Mom opens the door he won't react at all.
Is it possible for a horse to bond that fast to one person? He doesn't act like this with anyone else. Mom, Dad, Tony, Marg....no one. So why is it just me? Is it just a fluke or is he really bonding to me?
