This is the kind of love I love. Yesterday DH put the horses back after lunch (they are separated at meal time). As usual the haffie filly had dirtied the water trough. So, DH emptied and refilled it. We try hard to keep the appearance that the haffie is DH's for my mare's sake - as she is extremely possessive of me. DH stood w the haffie whilst the trough filled - otherwise the haffie will remove the hose. My mare has very expressive eyes, and DH told me how she just gave him and the haffie a sideways "whatever, I can't be bothered with little people" look, and mozied off to stare over the fence toward the house and patiently waited for her human! When I clean/fill the trough my mare stands right by my side and keeps the haffie at bay. Ahhhh, to be loved!!!!
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
