Talking Does this mean she loves me?

My horse Destiny is duh a sweetheart! She's 8 and I've had her since she was 3. When I go up to her dry lot that she shares with my pony. She always walks straight up to me and demands attention. So I get her out and tack up then go for a ride. Anyways, I always tie her up in front of the house so I can go get a drink. When I come out I always yell "Hey Destiny girl!" she whinnies and neighs when she sees me. And when she's in with the other horses and I holler at her she does the same thing. Does it mean she loves me?

Dad, I realize you hate horses. But see that picture <-. You bought me that horse, so therefore, this is obsession is your fault.

I think so. Even though some people don't believe it horses CAN love (although their "love" is different from human emotion, of course ). And it's NOT because of the food or treats.

It's not human love, but it's certainly affection.

As Kitten stated, horses do love, but don't confuse it with human type love.

Mine love me when I feed them Vida my older mare who I love dearly could care less if I was there or not. Her daughter Saro is the same as your Destiny. She follows me around and comes running when I go outside. I never give her treats so I know its not that. She just likes me. I love them both but Vida will always be my main love, even though she's indifferent.

That is really sweet. She obviously enjoys your company. That is love, horsey style.

Hey, SR, my paint kisses me right in lips all the time. She LOVES doing it. Do you think it's comparable?

JJ hugs me too, but it's only for a nefarious purpose; to bite my butt!

I guess it's just so big, round, and tempting he can't help himself, but there's nothing like thinking your horse is hugging you because he wants to be affectionate, and then you get a bite on your bum!
