I'm glad I ran into this thread, I was starting to feel weird about my 'addiction'. My trainer thinks I'm crazy because I just want to be out at the barn 24/7. Example: today is supposed to be 97° instead of 105° and I'm heading out to get a little 'horse time' in.
My friends and family are saints for listening to me talk horses all the time. |
This. I'm always talking about the horses at the barn or what I learned, what we accomplished, etc.
I'm 27 and when I'm around horses (or horse related stuff) I feel 12, just the pure joy that they bring to my life. They wipe away all the stress of work, money, relationships, etc. It's just me and them, I love it.
