Two weeks ago we went to a local horse rescue to see about adoption. On the way, I explained to my crew that while I like any animal that dosent slither, I am just NOT a horse person and the bulk of any responsibility towards a new horse would be theirs. Two days later, our two rescues came home and can you guess just whose been out with the horses every possible free minute ;)
I never "got" horse people...horses were handsome animals but...it's not like you could cuddle or hug them like a cat or dog....wow was I wrong on that one. Not sure I will ever have the desire to ride but for right now, teaching these two to trust again, to provide them a safe, loving home and getting their health back is enough. I can't wait to go outside and see Thor and Venus first thing every morning. Thor follows me around the field and is always agreeable when I want to nuzzle against his neck and scratch his back for him.
