The power of a horse.

So today, my mother passed away, and I had a tough morning, but I went to work at the barn anyway and I just cant stop thinking about how amazing it is to have horses in my life. I honestly don't know what I would do without them. As broken as I am, from losing my mom and a very good friend of mine just a few months apart, horses are something that make me keep on living. My filly and my gelding were both fantastic for me today, and it meant more to me than any words could ever. There is nothing like having a horse be there for you, because talk is cheap, and horses know how to change how you are feeling, I am just so grateful for my wonderful horses <3

So sorry for your loss, I can hardly imagine.
Horses are THE best medicine! Works for me too. Just when I want to pull out my hair or have a stroke I head out to the pasture and hang with them.

Glad to hear you got a moment. Hugs!

So sorry for you loss, and I cannot even begin to imagine, but I have had my fair share of moments where my horse was all I had. I remember once very clearly, ages ago, when my long time boyfriend broke up with me. Being young, it was the end of the world. It was late but I went to the barn and just sat in my horse's stall and cried my eyes out. My gelding, who normally just kinda ignored me, stood over me and just kinda rested his chin on my shoulder and I just hugged his face for the longest time, crying. Horses are very therapeutic.

*hugs and comfort to you, we are never ready to lose our moms* I agree with you, spending time with my horses, riding, is when I feel renewed, close to God and appreciative of all I have. Be kind to yourself.

Don't take life so seriously. After all no one gets out alive.

I am so in your shoes. My dad just passed on the 27th. My boys so knew something was up with me & were so quite, standing close, just touching me with their noses while I cried.

Cowgirl up!

Horses are such healers, of mind, spirit, and heart.

My condolences, I cannot imagine the pain you are experiencing but your horses are doing a great job of watching over you and providing support.

We;re here too!

Lots of hugs to everyone on this thread :)

Thank you all so much <3 Littrella, I am sorry for your loss, but glad you have something to keep you grounded, like me. Horses are so tuned into reading emotions, and sometimes there is nothing better than a horsie hug!
