what do you love about your horse?

just wondering what everyone loves about their horses!

Jenny - I love her trot, so comfy, and I love her head carriage and the way she holds her tail, she wants to be an Arab, Lol. I also love her neck on the left side as it looks like someone has sprinkled icing sugar on her! (She's Appie) 

JennyMyAppaloosa♥Loveyou

Re: what do you love about your horse?

 I love Tommys little hello wicker and the big kiss i get as a greeting every time without fail.  Rhodri i just love his innocence (sp), his awkwardness and his gentle little soul.  Buttons has got to be his cheekyness and free spirit (as my sister calls it), he just doesn't worry about the rest of the herd he does his own thing.  Little Star is very shy and I love his ginger mane, its massive but we have yet to bond, he's been here a few months but doesn't want to be best friends yet

one of Tommys most enduring traits is the way he looks after his herd, if one escapes he will come to the gate at the house and scream blue murder to get help to get them all back together, if he escapes he stands outside the gate to the field cos he wont leave his friends

I love those special moments you have with them, been through a tough time with my mare and its those moments that make it special.  Like walking up to the field and have her neigh so loud and come cantering to you to meet you at the gate :) I love her honesty too, she can be a right typical mare but will always try her heart out when jumping! x

Bracken is the epitomy of the old saying about cobs - they should have the face of a lady and the backend of a cook - well she certainly has a big bum, and  I love her face, it's very aristocratic looking (when her beards' shaved off anyway, lol !!) And she has the most beautiful hammer marks when her summer coat comes through. She's not a great one for cuddles, but I just love her for the way she is 

Monty is a character, and everyone who comes up to the field to see the horses falls for him, especially little children - he's very quiet and gentle, and has this habit of stretching his neck out as far as he can to sniff anything new, and he loves a fuss and cuddles.

Fate I haven't really fathomed yet, we're still sizing each other up, but she loves having her bum scratched, and her face rubbed.

Captain is just hilarious, he's such a typical little pony, into everything, wants to know everything that's going on, and you can't help but chuckle, he puts a smile on your face just watching him

Sabrina I have only had since September last year 2011 and has proven a difficult horse, now calming down just have to concentrate on riding her and trust, but now she comes to me, neighs and wickers to me and the nudge also a little trick of gently pulling the hair on my arm. She also has run off with my walking stick and turned the wheelbarrow over full of poo in the field. Love the way she is now starting to relax and starting to trust as when she sees me makes a fuss.

Gypsy Gold does not chink & glitter.It gleams in the sun and neighs in the dark.Tonka & Lara my beautiful horses RIP, Nelson,Chloe & Kitty the cats.

Re: what do you love about your horse?

ZZ - there isn't just one thing - I just love every single piece of her inside and out - everything she does good and bad, every move she makes, every sound, every emotion - it is just LOVE.

Anya, the way she tips her head to the side with the look that says "I am just soooooo pretty" - or when you tell her off the way she will come over pull you towards her with her head, sigh and cuddle you and you can see her saying "well I am a thoroughbred you know".

Welshie - Ummmm, I suppose it's her fabulous tail - everyone says she has a lovely tail!  Oh an her total independance - she needs no-one and nothing!

There is no greater gift than to share time with a creature of such beauty - The Horse.

Re: what do you love about your horse?

When he  whinney's in the morning to you or comes cantering down from the field when you call :)  The other day the herd were heading back up the field with him in the lead and when I shouted her turned round and pushed his way round through them all to come to me :)  (loves me/his dinner more than the heard!).

Even when he is a little git he makes me laugh because he just pull the sillest faces and I find it so hard to be made at him

 flicks cuddly moments, her loyalty, her ability to put a smile on my face no matter what. Her eyes that tell a thousand tales. The fact that as shes getting older the grey hairs are appearing around them yet she still feels like a 4 year old. The way her back goes up when she see logs out in the woods and her ears prick to attention. LOVE HER.

 

treacles quirkyness, cheekyness and his beautiful afro mane :)
