They're mine and I love them. Everything else is just fluff.

With Buttercup I think what makes her so special to me is the fact that I'm the only person she relaxes with and you can tell she really trusts me and only me. She is also easiest for me to catch. She is my baby.

I think it's the things you go through with your horses that make them special. Less than a year after I got Koolio, he cut his leg badly, and nicked his tendon sheath. The time I spent treating and bandaging his wound made the bond between us much stronger. Shortly after his injury, I had foot surgery and so I was in a cast as well. We were two of the same, helping each other limp around on our casted left legs and careful not to cause the other to stumble or trip. Since then, he almost always whinnies when he sees me.

We had our guy Sam for around 11 years before we (reluctantly) sold him to friends. In that time, we went through a lot, including having two children and moving three times. Sam was always with us. When we found him again this past summer and bought him back he not only remembered us, but the bond we had was also still there. He's special because he is family. It just feels right to have him back home with us again.

Victor is my honey because I've had him so long and we know each other so well. You know that feeling you get the first time you see your heart horse? Well, I get that feeling every time I see him. It just never gets old.

That's the feeling I got when I first spotted my horse in a herd of 30 standing there staring back at me.
He was 6 months old and you would have never have thought that it was the horse you had been looking for.

Vanna is my horse simply because of who she is. I knew her when she was just a young horse on the race track. I worked with her and I was one of the only people she completely trusted. I could do anything with her and she would depend on me to take her to and from the track, harness her up, groom her, turn her out, and care for her. When she moved to a different barn, I lost track of her.

Twelve years later, I managed to locate her and was given the opportunity to purchase her at a very reasonable price. I showed up at the farm with a trailer and the moment she saw me, she appeared to recognize me. As soon as I took her lead line, she pushed her head into my chest and just stood there. When I go to the barn to see her now, she always meets me at the gate, nickers to me and licks my hands. She trusts me to keep her safe, and I trust her with my life. We understand each other, I don't try to change her past and she doesn't try to test me. Together, we're a solid duo. She's aloof to everyone else and is very choosy about who is allowed to touch her, but with me... her playful, curious side comes out. It's a very common for her to take my brushes and hold them just above my head, and then fling them across the barn aisle. If I glare at her, she'll lick my cheek and rub her muzzle against the wet spot, smearing dirt across my face.

She is my horse, and I am her human. That's what makes our relationship so special. We belong to each other and the bond was still there after a 12 year absence.

There are 30+ riders/owners at my barn. My horse only walks across his paddock to the gate when he sees me. I don't pack treats, so to me that says something.
