I have definitely experienced jealousy. I had one of the lesson horses on the crossties, cleaning him up and loving on him and my nephew was feeding him handfuls of hay. My five year old gave us the stare down, then he made quiet nickers, and as we kept ignoring him and giving the other horse hay, he started prancing. He did not like being left out, poor dear. He had a nice pile of hay at his feet, but as you all know, anything from the hand tastes better. He had that confused and unsure look on his face too, that screamed "hey, you are forgetting me! I am right here!" I entertain myself with thought that he misses me, but I know that he doesn't. He is just happy to see me always. He is such a loving goofball. It would wreck me in many ways to see that horse unhappy.
