Horse Withdrawal

So the last 1-2 weeks, I have been going out to the farm every day, because I am actually getting somewhere with Breeze, and the weather is so nice. Since I have been going out everyday, I decided to give her a day off... Well I have been wanting to go out all day, and working with Breeze again... but I knew that she deserved a day off. So I let it be. But literally, I think I am going threw horse withdrawal!!! I cannot wait until tomorrow, so I can go out and work with my horse.

Has anyone had this happen before... work with your horse for a while, then skip one day and despertaly want to go and see them again?

It is so weird for me... because I usually only go out 3-4 times a week, sometimes 5 days a week, but thats it... except for the first month I had Breeze, I went out there every day. And now I skip a day, and really want to see her!!!

YEP !!!! I understand what you are going through, but im never letting myself get attached to a horse again. I got attached to my previous lease horse for a couple of months not any more. "essentially we are all on our own" is a favourite quote to me.

Would you let yourself get attached to a horse you actually own?

Also I am going through just lessons and I am having horse withdraws, I have such a blast when im out doing my lessons and helping out.

Well, just go to visit. That way it shows YOU do not always mean WORK.

Oh my I go through it all the time. I have a one year old filly I've had for five months and I went on vacation this week and I MISS HER SO MUCH. I've had everyone who's taking care of her send me pictures so it makes it a little easier. I was this attached to my first horse that died a couple years ago and I've waited for another relationship like it and this one surpasses it. I don't know what I was do without my Miss Scarlett!!!

Check out my progress with my AQHA filly Scarlett!

I had this happen to my when I had a medical problem and could not get to the barn for a few months I ask my horsey friends to come over straight from the barn so I could smell them ( the horse smell ):)

I agree! Just visiting her would be nice. She will see that you don't always mean work. :) It's great that you miss her though! I miss having a horse to miss. :(

I do visit her a lot. I have just been working with her a lot too, and I thought she deserved a day without me around! Lol... This is the best relationship I have had with any horse, but I did have a leased horse, and he died from a heart attack. I was sad, but I moved on... if anything ever happens to Breeze, I don't know what I will do... or if I will be able to move on.

Thats a tough one ... hmm depends on the horse i guess if it had conformation was a good age and had a temperament i liked than yes but if i was just working with a project pony or horse than no.

If I feel like some horse time but don't want to ride I go out and groom my horse. :)
