I totally do! I feel like the time I'm on a someone elses horse is time I could be on my own! I prefer my horses! Even over a well trained horse. I was offered a even trade for this big beautiful roan (I really don't know what this girl was thinking but this is the honest to God truth!!!) He road so smooth and listened SO WELL! She asked if I would trade even for my mare (who has no papers and still unfinished). Of course I said no. I've had her since she was weaned! BUT I knew a friend looking for her first horse and he was perfect and her favorite color! So I asked price.... she said she wanted $10000 for him! WHATS?!?! LOL I would trade her for nothing though.

I have no problem working with other horses, it's HENNY that has the problem. He gets very jealous when I work with other horses. One night a couple weeks ago, we thought Tejano, the gelding in the paddock next to Henny and Bubba's was colicking. I hand walked him for about 45 mins-hour while contacting his owners and waiting for them to get there. The entire time Henny was pacing the fence, pawing, and calling to me in his manly voice(as manly as Henny can get bahaha). I'm thinking it was along the lines of "Mom, mommy, MOM, MAMA, what are you doing?! I'm over here! You're over there! That's not right!" Whenever we're away from home and I hand him off to someone else/tie him and go to grab something, he tries his hardest to follow me and then impatiently waits for me to come back. He's a big mama's boy, that's for sure.

I'd never even considered jealousy (our lot are the 'haha you're about to get WORKED' type that laugh over the fence at whoever's in the ring) until one day we went out to catch the boys for a hack. My friend couldn't catch her boy, and since I normally take a couple of treats into the field with me to help catch Geoff, the boys all know and love me. So she caught Geoff while I caught her horse - and Geoff kept trying to spin round to see where I was, and kept stopping on the way to the gate.

I don't think it was outright jealousy, more like 'this isn't the way we normally do things'! Or else the whole 'is he getting my treats' thing. But my last horse was so sociable with everyone and generally attention seeking with everyone that I wasn't expecting that reaction from Geoff... funny :) Then again, he does neigh to me now from the stable, so I'm obviously his pal these days :)

Fayde definitely "cares" when I mess with other horses, but I think most of it is the "hey, that's MY treat" kind of a thing. She doesn't appear mad, just watches with ears up and intent eyes.

Though, she does "hug" me by bending her neck back and around me when I'm brushing her sometimes. At first I thought she was just looking for mints, but she doesn't search me like usual, just wraps her neck around me and rests her chin on my hip for a few seconds. She's never done that with anybody else, so...I don't know.
