I've often wondered about this, what is the difference between just a horse and a heart horse?? A question especially for those who are lucky like me to own more than one horse.
Why the question now, well we currently have 3 big horses, 4 adult Haffies, 2 yearling Haffies, one haffy colt, and two crossbred colts.
That is a lot of horse flesh and for many reasons I find myself having to seriously contemplate having to cut down, and by quite a bit. That involves making decisions who will be listed and who is safe, and I'm quite surprised to find who makes what list. Ones that I thought would be on my keep list, I could actually bear to list, and there are those who make me cry at the thought of selling.
It came as a total shock to me that one mare who I always thought would be one of my first to go if this day ever came is firmly on the couldn't bear to part with her list....because she has gone from a mare who hated or was indifferent to everyone, to one who follows me around the whole time, if I'm working with someone else she finds noisy things to do, flipping the latch on the gate, pushing the water tub around, anything to get attention.
It came as no shock to me that Ace and Angel are at the top of my keepers list
Question is do you have your heart horse, and how do you know so?
