Usually people admire my horse from a distance but if they ask to pet her, I always say yes. April loves the attention. Doesn't matter how spooky she's been on a ride, she'll always stand perfectly still if a stranger is loving on her. One time someone asked if her baby could meet her, and you wouldn't believe how gently she touched her muzzle to that baby's outstretched hand. A loud jeep drove right behind her butt and and she didn't even flick an ear, she was so blissfully distracted by the kid.
