I love these. Only horse people will get these. Here's my addition:
The night of the superbowl, I was with about 20 guys/teenage boys when that clydesdale commercial came on. I got a big lump in my throat, and my eyes watered up at the end, and a bunchof the guys started giving me a bunch of crap about it. But it was okay..... it's a horse thing, they wouldn't have understood. I had been gone for about 10 days only a few weeks before, and when I came home I went to see how my Sonny was. (He's a 13 yo, turns 14 tomorrow, thoroughbred) When he saw me I got one of those low nickers, and he trotted over to the gate to wait for me. Before I couild get the gate open, he put his nose right up in my face, and we had to exchange breath, another low nicker, and then I went into the pasture and we walked around for awhile. It just doesn't get any better than that.
