My mare pretends she doesnt like the attention, and that she just wants to be left alone... but she likes it, if I ever leave for two or more days she walks up to me and excited. Haha I think she's very vain though, she is one of those hroses like 'I'm here! The queen is here! I own this place' attitude, haha. But she still likes her royal subjects ;)
It ight just be horses personalitly. :)
Just NEVER get ANGRY with a horse, and there wont be anythng you SERIOUSLY regret when you learn more. Because when you get angry/mad at a horse, and lash out, then you will regret it when you are bad in a normal mindset. Just have endless patience, and have an open mind, and ASK QUESTIONS, and use common sense. I have seen lots of people never ask questions, and be lead off to a terrible trainer who doesnt even really like horses. So if you use common sense, an open mind, and ask lots of questions, you will learn a lot in no time! :)
If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.
