the stallion has no feelings of fatherhood at all.
and yet there are human men that are the same....
I've always wondered about this subject. It mostly came about with my first horse love. A gelding named Trix Four Kids. I spent a lot of time with him and developed a strong relationship with him. He would never hurt a fly... intentionally. He constantly stepped on peoples feet and ran into things... but he was just never paying attention lol. Ok so to the point of this. My boyfriend started coming to the barn and spending time there.
Trix was fine with him, until one day. I was with Trix and he came over and he was still fine, until he kissed me. Trix lost his mind. He started lunging at him over the door, mouth wide open, ears pinned. My boyfriend couldnt touch me near him, he would take his head if he came close, and put it between us and pull me against his stall with his head and not let my boyfriend come close. Even if we were down the isleway a little, if he saw him touch me he would get upset, pinning his ears, hanging his head low and just giving that "p*ssed off look".
I went to work for another stable and had to leave my Trix, but I still went to visit him every day. Then one day a friend came to my stable I was at and told me my cousin had sold him to the amish. I started bawling my eyes out and ran to him but they already put him on the trailer. I climbed up on the side and he pushed his face into the bars as hard as he could and I touched his nose, and they left. He had the most depressed look on his face I had ever seen.
Since that day I had always wondered, did he love
me? Was he jealous? Was he upset
he was on a trailer leaving me? Would he remember
me if he saw me now? And if I ever had him back, would that bond
we had, that relationship
, still be the same??
