Love this idea to share all the goodies...let's see where to begin..
Goldy(RIP)my first pony, he taught me so much and I kept him in my life until he was taken to heaven,, he was 36 when he passed..
Quad- 22 yrs old.. QH/Appy cross.he picked me out when he was 6 months old- so we are partners for life.. he loves to go and gets sooo excited when he hears the trailer, I can open the gate and he goes straight to the trailer..
Fancy-22 years old- QH. she came into my life as a 3 yr. old.. she is my girl and my girl only.. makes me feel so special.
Bella- 12 yr old QH,, She has only been with us for about 2 years but she has nuzzled her way into our hearts... she has such a sweet personality and willingness to do what ever we ask.
Bitsy- 1 yr , she was Bella's surprise package.. she is going to be a real handful, but she is still quite the lady.

Sissie- Paint 7 yrs old, here family had to find a home for her and foal due to medical issues.. she took a while to warm up to us, but she loves attention and and is usually one of the leaders of the herd when we whistle for them. she loves attention.. Tigger her filly 1 yr old,, she is attention crazy.. she loves being touched all over.. she loves to whisper secrets in your ear...
last but not least.. is
Dandy.. 4 yr. old QH.. He is a sweetheart with a heart of gold, who follows us around like a puppy. He is trying at times, just because he likes things to go his way and can throw a tizzy fit when it doesn't go his way
But all in all , I get a warm feeling inside watching them in the pasture, get a tickle in my stomach when they give me a hug and nuzzle.. They just make life so much richer.. I feel very lucky to have them in our family..

Great thread idea! Thanks for sharing! I'll simply add that horses have so much to teach us about life that it'd be scary if it wasn't wrapped up in their beautiful, fragrant, charming selves!

My boy is so many things to me. I was the second person to ever see or touch him, and at that moment he wormed his ornery butt into my heart and now I can't even remember what life was like without him. Being the pushy, stubborn, EXTREMELY smart boy that he is, he has helped me to be more confident both around horses and with people. I have always been a rather quiet reserved person unless with family of very close friends. It took a lot of work for me to be able to be his leader, but we worked it out because I wanted to do him justice. He has never failed to either make me laugh or give me big sloppy grass kisses and a hug when I am down. He is even protective when I don't feel good. I would rather sleep in a stall with him than sell my baby turd boy.

I appreciate my horse Lakota for teaching me how to forgive and move on. He was abused and he didn't have to trust me...he had no reason to believe I wasn't going to hurt him. Even though he is a little wary at times of me, he puts a lot of trust in me and lets me do things that he wouldnt let me do if he didn't trust me. He's also taught me a good thing never waits and that you should listen to your heart. If I would have gotten stubborn and said, "no I dont need another horse" instead of saying what my heart was feeling. I never would have ended up with my gentle giant. <3

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Rocky's taught me patience. He was my first training project, and though I've taught him a lot, he's taught me so much more. We had to learn to work together. Now he's my partner. We're both learning new things right now and he's always right there with me. That's what I love about him. He tries so hard for me. I'd never had that special bond with a horse until I got Rocky. He does things for me he never did for anyone else. It feels so good to have that love and devotion from him. Mommy loves you, Spooker =)

I don't care what anyone else says, Victor's a pretty cool horse. Yes, we get on each other's nerves, but I still love him at the end of the day and he forgives me every single time I mess up. And Norman is the perfect snuggly teddy bear. He doesn't care how much I fuss over him, and like Victor, he never holds a grudge. I don't know what I'd do without my lovelies.

What I love about Pinto my horse(I was young when I named him) is that he loves me and would do anything for me and also protects me...I miss him so much right now but in July I will go to my grandpas farm and spend a month with my baby...<3333333

What I love about my mare Muneca(doll in Spanish) is that she teaches me how to be strong even though she is a little mean we still have our precious moments..<3333333

Reagan, thank you so much for putting trust in me and for showing me affection. When you first came to me, you were so head shy, and just today I walked up to you out in the pasture and put a fly mask on with out a halter and you were so good! I love when I ride you and drop your head and give me this great western pleasure-esque headset and I can ride you with no contact on the reins. You have taught me more about trust and leadership than any class I could have ever taken. I know that you're in retirement, but I want you to know that grooming and treats will never stop.

Norman, you are such a funny horse. You have really begun to behave yourself and I am so glad. Thank you for putting up with our tons and tons of figure eights while I hold the reins with my thumbs to practice light hands. You're the best little trail horse anyone could ever hope for and I love how you let me lean up against you while you graze. Your forehead scritches, treats, and grooming will never cease. I love your giant eyes and your sweet knickers when I come near. Thank you for being so excited to see me every day.
