Because, though I loved my dog, and cat, and my budge, even my fish probably, I can’t ride any of them. I don’t get the physical and sensory, even emotional, connection with them that I have had with my horses. I could watch my dog work cattle (admittedly he wasn’t very good, but he was MY dog, so he was the best) and I couldn’t feel anything. On my horse, if I saw a cow cut left to head bush Id think of going left after it and my horses feet acted as though they were my own, and I could feel all four of them as they were hitting the ground as if they were my own, everything of mine from waist down felt like part of the horse. I think that’s a connection we don’t get with any other thing in the world, except, perhaps, that special person we love the most.
