On my way driving to school (4 hours through Amish Country) I did a wolf whistle at a stunning horse who was galloping through a field.
You eat food with horse dirt caked on your fingers while everyone else stares at you in horror. My boyfriend told me that I had to come out to dinner with our friends, I said that I was sore and tired, but super hungry. So, I came, and started eating, and they just all stopped and stared.
When I get bored I wonder what my critter is doing, especially during storms.
While riding is amazing, you just are happy being around your critter.
