i dont really know, but what i do know is my horse has saved me 3 times from falling on the ice. a couple months ago i had a hard fall on the ice right in front of her. she was super good and stopped behind me and let me grab her halter to get up =]

ever since then, every time i slip its like she catches me. one of the times i as slipping backwards and she pushed me upright with her head. so maybe im a crazy person, but i swear she catches me and puts me upright !

My gelding now, I'm not sure if he loves me, but he sure knows who I am and how to behave when I am around. I was up visiting a couple of weeks ago. I went out and saw the horses and when Coyote finally came up he was a bit pushy but in about a minute he figured out who I was and started acting totally different! All I did was give him a hug and pick up his hooves, then when I tried to step back and take a picture he followed me around. When I threw my little sisters on his back and led him around by his mane he behaved like he was supposed to. If you put a kid around him, he goes totally gentle. I think he loves kids. I was showing Sara (4) how to pick up his hooves and was letting her stand beside me and 'hold' his hooves. Also showing her how to walk around a horse. Coyote stood stock still the whole time and behaved like a perfect gentleman. I was quite proud of him! Sara was tickled pink to be able to help with her favorite horse! If I would say that Coyote loved anyone, it would be Sara. Crazy, ornery, pushy, and spooky/jumpy, with most people, but with little kids he's awesome!

I figure if a girl wants to be a LEGEND, she should just go ahead and be one. ~Calamity Jane

This is the kind of love I love. Yesterday DH put the horses back after lunch (they are separated at meal time). As usual the haffie filly had dirtied the water trough. So, DH emptied and refilled it. We try hard to keep the appearance that the haffie is DH's for my mare's sake - as she is extremely possessive of me. DH stood w the haffie whilst the trough filled - otherwise the haffie will remove the hose. My mare has very expressive eyes, and DH told me how she just gave him and the haffie a sideways "whatever, I can't be bothered with little people" look, and mozied off to stare over the fence toward the house and patiently waited for her human! When I clean/fill the trough my mare stands right by my side and keeps the haffie at bay. Ahhhh, to be loved!!!!

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
