I was grooming my horse today before our morning ride.Just standing at the hitching post next to her head not really paying attention. I suddenly felt this soft nuzzle on my hair and cheek. Vida had her nose right against my cheek and was taking a good long smell. I could feel her warmth and the almost suction like intake of her breath. It was just so cool I wanted to tell you about it. She has never done it before. I quit smoking (5 weeks today) and wondered if it was because now I smell better or because I smell different then I used to. It was a very sweet horsey/human moment. I'm not sure whats going on between her and I lately. She has just gotten way more affectionate this summer than she has ever been.
Sorry folks, just really feeling the love for the Vida horse today
My German Shepherd sits on the couch with me-shes as big as a pony-Sonny is a "roller in poop" so he can't come in hehehehhhe
Isnt it just so wonderful when you bond-i could not live without my animals-jsut makes the whole day worth living through when they trust us and show affection.
Maybe it has something to do with the moon cycle ?!?! Yesterday I was unloading groceries out of the back of the suburban and (I had the horses mowing the yard yesterday) I turned around with my hands full of scary white grocery bags to have Dumas right there in front of me...like 10 inches away...He sniffed the bags and then stood there and sniffed my nose....It was the weirdest thing but totally cool! 8)
I'm going to say that Vida likes the way mommy smells now!!!! And the mowed trails and the feed and the butt scratches...She Loves Mommy Maureen!!!
