I know we don't like to humanize animals, but a close bond can and does exist between horse and human. I was gone five days last week and DW swears Miss Lacy was getting more depressed with every passing day I was gone.
She wouldn't eat her watermelon on the fifth day, but as soon as I was home to feed them to her she was fine.
I'm pretty sure she see's me as her "human" and we have a strong bond.
I think you do too, and he's a bit pissed off over the lack of attention.
He's not feeling the love if you know what I mean....
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
