I think...he's my heart horse.
Most of you who have read my posts know, Apollo is very new in my life. He is my first horse since I "flew the nest."
Anyway, I knew I loved him and that he was a sweetie, but wasn't sure if he was my 'heart horse'. I never even heard of that term till I came to here to Horse Forum.
Now to my story!
I had to work the pat couple days so I wasn't able to go to the barn, I decided to stop in just for an hour or so so he didn't forget me! Haha.
Well when I came in he started whinnying right away. I was brushing him and I noticed he was a little sore (I think it was from our first trail ride the other day) anyway so I decided to rub him a little and stretch him out.
Well this where I came to the conclusion he is my heart horse...
I was rubbing his chest and legs and he was just loving it. He would stretch out his body and just be adorable. I successfully taught him how to lift and hand me his hooves by voice command so I can stretch him.
Anyway after our bonding session I was just petting him and he put his nose right in front of me and was breathing very slowly in my face. Then I kind of blew into his nose and he started to make this really low and short sound. I don't know what to call it but it seemed like he was trying to communicate or something, then he just licked me right up my face.
I never have had a horse do that to me, or even act the way that he does around me. I realized how much we've bonded in such a short amount of time. I couldn't be happier to have found him. I am so thankful his breeder saw something between us when we met.
She had told me she turned down several people before me..
It seriously makes me want to cry how happy I am. :)
