Old97fan said it best! And so did Winston Churchill. There's something about the outside of a horse that's good for the inside of a man. I couldn't agree more! My job can be very stressful at times. And it's those times that I appreciate our horses the most. Even if I just go sit in the pasture, they just seem to make everything fine again. When my Sonny comes up and breathes in my face it has such a calming affect on me. My horses have taught me so much about them and about myself. It's hard to put into words what I enjoy most. Such a huge, commanding, yet graceful animal that has for some reason chosen to allow us to be a part of them. Yet, them being prey animals, and us being predators.... and we have been inexplainably bound together for centuries. Who can explain that? But atleast we are smart enough to accept it, and most of the time, make the best of it. I just can't imagine being without my horses. That's the aspect I love the best!
