Is this okay?

Is it okay to get down on your knees and let a horse sniff you and ruffle up your hair and just be curious and check you out?

I wouldn't do it. Being on your knees makes you way too slow to move if you need to & puts all your body parts within a strike zone. Plus I don't want horse slobber in my hair.

It depends on the horse I think. If they're at all a nervous type, definitely no. I'd never do it with a horse I don't know, personally.

I was asking for the sake of someone else.

"I just want to be where the horses are <3."

With my horse, I'm totally fine with it. I sit out in her pasture and let her walk around me and all that, and I've yet to be stepped on-- and it's my own fault if it ever occurs. I wouldn't recommend doing this with a young/nervous/unfamiliar horse, though any horse can spook and every horse owns feet to step on you with. :)

What was the point of starting another thread when the first one got locked? Are you just itching for another argument?

This thread is a duplicate of another thread closed by the Team.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
