You know your horse loves you when..

I go to put my boy in the turn out arena and I went back into the barn to get out all my tack and grooming stuff. Im in the tack room and I hear a horse..No one else was out there. I didn't think. I walk out of the tack room and he pokes his head around the barn door and looks for me and then trots down the barn aisle and puts his head in my chest. Haha. He managed to open the arena gate and walk himself all the way over to the barn and find me (:

Post your "You know your horse loves you when!" Or just any special moment!

Thats great. I love it when I have those moments with my horses. Sound like your horse really loves you.

Yesterday, I put Pro in a 7 acre pasture with his friend and left to go work Reyna. Once I was done with her I put her back in her pen and started to walk back down the driveway to the pasture. Pro saw me and left his grass and friend (at a gallop) until her got to me then he nickered and put his head into me for a hug:)

Another time I kept him at the therapeutic riding center (He helped be a therapy horse for one week!) And he could just push the arena gate and came to see me around the corner and came to see me (for another hug) then he stood there and I got my lunch we ended up sharing together:)

I left Sonya in the riding ring so I could go get something from my locker , I was shocked when she met me at my locker . She jumped out of the ring ( 4 foot ) crazy crazy girl. She does this anytime I'm in there with her and leave even if someone stays with her she jumps right out . I love my horse :)

I was away on vacation and had a friend feeding my first horse (ages ago) He was a well behaved little man who I adored. When I got back from vacation, I pulled into our driveway...King saw my car and ran up through his field, jumped his creek, busted through the electric fence and stood at my car door huffing and puffing. I should have scolded him for busting the fence but he had never done it before and he was honestly glad to see me. I miss him allll the time!

These stories are so cute!
I have tons of these little stories, but I really like one about my mare, Bebe.
She has always been a very herd oriented horse, if you know what I mean. She doesn't like to be away from the herd and can get sour easily. She also did NOT like to be in the barn. I was the only one to work with her for a long time because everyone else was afraid of her so she was really close to me. When I would bring her in (in the beginning of her training) she would dance, and pace in her stall, whinny for the herd and try to run through her stall door everytime it was opened. After a little while she became comfortable with me and would be okay as long as I was in sight. I would go into her stall and she would calm right down. But if she could see me helping another person with their horse, she would try to get my attention by making weird faces. Opening her mouth really wide, sticking her tongue out the side and shaking her head so her tongue hit her in the face. She would also make grunting noises and whinny at me until I came back.
TALK ABOUT ATTENTION HOG!! Lol I love that horse though. She's a sweetheart.

Another time, I had a three year old quarter horse mare in training and hadn't seen her in a week. I came out to ride her and she was at the back of the field with the herd. So I stood on the manure pile (don't ask) and called her name to see if I could get her attention. She came RUNNING from the back of the field, full out gallop. I thought she was going to jump over that manure pile! She came to a dead stop infront of it and nickered to me, it was ADORABLE :)

I love horses.

Once I was working with a mare who'd run up to me when I arrived in the morning & let myself into her long yard, & screech to a halt right before she'd've gone through me. Then, I had to sing her the Name Game song on the walk to the barn or she'd get upset--Annie Bannie Bo Bannie--:)

When she gets out and runs a mile down the road and grazes in the neighbor's yard and yet comes GALLOPING up to me, whinnying, when I pull up in the car and call her name. AWWW! I was so happy she would leave so much green grass and come to me. *hugs*

Hehe, I don't have any of the lovely galloping into my arms stories...but I know she loves me when she spooks, but looks RIGHT to me for a little bit of confidence. Anyone else she'll just pull away from and leave whatever it is that makes her uncomfortable.

She also doesn't take treats from people unless I'm there to tell her it's ok, and she 'can' be (but isn't always) a hassle for other people to catch when out in the field, but is always a dream for me, unless she's being playful and decides to trot in circles around me with her head held high lol.

She's also a little antisocial, with people AND horses. She only really walks up to me, and doesn't call to her pasture mates unless they call first, and it's kind of that half hearted "Yeah yeah...I'm right here...what do you want?" kind of answer lol.

She also HUGS me!!! At 16.1 she's a big girl to throw my arms around, but when I do (and I do it often) she tucks her head over my shoulder and holds me to her big chest. Sometimes she'll add in a little 'kiss' to my rump with her lips lol.

Let's see, after rinsing my old horse off, I put him in the greenest pasture with an electric fence. About 1 minute later, a horse comes running up the the barn, whinnying. He stops by me, I pat him tell him he's okay, and then put him back in the pasture. He was content then.
