Why I love my horses...

Without needing to go too into detail, I wanted to come on here to express why I love my horses so much and what they do for me in return for caring for them.

I have been battling depression due to some issues ongoing for the past 2 years or so. I am strong by nature but have been feeling weak and wavering lately. On Monday night I hit a breaking point, I just didn't want to do anything but sleep and stay away from people. But... i'm an employee, a mom, and a wife...so life must go on.

Tuesday I went out to feed the horses a little earlier than usual so I could spend some time with them. They are unbelievable curers. The joy and happiness I get from them is astonishing. I only spent maybe 30-45 minutes with them... not even doing much but petting them and looking them over. By the time I went back into my house I was feeling better than I have in weeks. It's not the first time either. My horses are such a source of comfort for me. A special look, or a whinny for their food gives me such security and contentment.

I just wanted to share this. I'm sure many of you have similar stories. Please feel free to share. Horses are amazing animals. So despite the costs - they are worth their weight in gold.

You are so right. When I had my accident I had to sell some of my horses because I couldn't take care of them and finish out their training. I have been around horses for most of my life and was riding every day before I got hurt. I was so depressed and sickened after I got rid of them. Now I have some more, couldn't live with out them and got two that were well trained (I had to work with one and send him to a trainer, first time EVER!) instead of me taking on the greenies that I really love, and we did keep my husbands horse. I do not ride nearly as much as I used to, maybe only once every other week. It's the time and caring for them that helps me. I'm also teaching my daughter to ride and I enjoy that almost more than me riding.
I go out in the pasture and rub/spray them down, walk with them, smell them, and they RELAX me!

This is priceless medication!
