    Have I mentioned lately how owning a horse is the most satisfying thing?

    I went to see Mr. Citrus after work today, which was hard and long and as usual life and death (I am an RN)..... but I got to the barn, took in the smells of warm horses and immediately felt relaxed. I got him some grain and called him in from the pasture.... I love watching him swishy swish his way over to me with his long tail and pasture belly.....I smelled him as he ate his grain..... I scratched his ears, pretending that I was helping keep the flys out..... I chased flies off of him while he licked the bottom of the bucket...... the whole thing was just right....... I love my boy. Something about having him in my life is satifying to my soul. Hooray for horses in our lives- it is the best :)

    Are you trying to make me jealous?

    Oh dear no..... if you don't own, just having horses in your life is wonderful. I am feeling extra loving towards my sweet boy..... he is almost 5 and I am thankful for so many things that he does not do- get anxious leaving the pasture, riding in a field, having his owner (my 7 year old) on his back,...... I just love him sooooo much. He is the sweetest guy!

    I know exactly how you feel. My horse reminds me every time I'm with him why he is worth all the hard work and money.

    I even like scooping the poop. It's so peaceful being outside doing something productive.

    This made me laugh! Nice to know someone else out there enjoys it! I get such a sense of satisfaction when all the poop (in the stall and in the paddock) has been scooped and disposed of. I guess it's gratifying to me.

    A couple of my girlfriends that also own and keep at home feel the same. We refer to ourselves sometimes as the "super pooper scoopers!". Yes, it's lame but we're old.

    Ughhh, I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to seeing my horse tomorrow. Stressful awful week, and just knowing that tomorrow I'll see him makes it all okay. :)

    They truly do magically sooth the soul... :) dogs are a close second that do that to me... <3

    I absolutely agree.... horses are magical for some of our souls.... dogs as well..... I wonder if it is their tails..... so much communication in a swish or a wag :)

    My favorite doggie doesn't have a tail ;)



    Haha! But definitely something about the animal spirit that makes me feel complete when I'm blessed to share special moments with them!
