    kinda pointless but have to vent

    Ok so I had no I dea what to put as the title but I just had to vent to someone!. So I've had timmy for almost 2 years (it will be 2 years in may) and its been probably the hardest 2 years of my life! We have been through alot but I never really felt like we had a bond, sometimes I would go home and end up in tears because at times it felt like he didnt like me. Like my friend and her horse you can see an instant bond he always looks so happy to see her, he runs to the fence when he see's her and I never saw timmy look that way to me. But today I finally realized that timmy is alot like me, so this is what happend when my mom dropped me off at the barn she yelled at me for complaining about the mud ( all I said was why did it have to be so cold I can't wash the mud off his leggs) and of course with my period being 2 days away im really emotional and I don't like being yelled at :P as soon as I got to timmy in the field I just wrapped my armes around his neck and started to cry something I've never done around him befor. And he reacted just like me when people cry around me he didnt really seem to know what to do :P then I felt him rub my back with his noes and the look on his face just looked like he cared.

    Im sorry for this pointless thread, I guess I just realized since we are so much the same even when it doesnt seem like we have a bond there is one there you all probably think im crazy now just im having a tough time at school with friend and all so its just nice to know someone cares even if it is a horse :)

    I don't think you are crazy at all. Just like people, every horse is different and they express themselves differently. Just because he doesn't treat you the way your friend's horse treats her, doesn't mean you don't have a bond just as strong. And I'm glad you found that. He just seems to me to be quiet, or more reserved in showing himself. He may still come around after a time and be more expressive, but maybe not. Just know that he does apparently care.

    As for the mud on the legs (or anywhere). Look for a Bassine (that's the type of bristle) brush. It's a natural fiber that is really really STIFF. Here in Nebraska it is normally way to cold to hose anything off a horse so we have to rely only on brushes to get the mud off. These work really great on legs and thick winter coats.

    The bond you have with your horse is the strongest most amazing bond in the entire world, it just expresses itself different to people watching, but they know that you two are pals for life and love each other very much. Don't doubt it for a second ;)

    I agree that horses express differently. It was like your horse was consoling you... You guys do have a bond. Even if he isn't as extroverted about it as your friend's horse. ;)

    Westerncowgurl, your story brought tears to my eyes. I'm glad you were able to see the bond you have with your horse. :)
