They may not have meant it as a compliment if they weren't a horse / animal lover, but all mine get a hug and a kiss every time I see them, so mmmm....!!

They are just jealous I guess . . . mine always used to get greeted with a cuddle, kiss and a hug and I am sure there are plenty of other horses and ponies out there that get greeted the same.  Does anyone else also rabbit away to their horse whilst doing stuff, as in telling them what you are doing with them, like as I'm just going to put your numnah straight and if I was riding a friend's horse it would be 'bad luck you've got me riding you today' or is it just me??!

Yes, I do that all the time - people often give me strange looks as I go along the road chatting away to my horses!  I find more than anything that it calms me but I'm sure my boys would tell me to shut up if they could!  Munchie gives me some very withering looks

I blether to mine all the time.  Blair's home alone just now so he has the radio on during the day to keep him company, he loves radio 2 but hates our local station, I know because he sticks his ears back and stamps his feet, but when radio 2 is on he looks like he's listening intently!  He particularly likes to listen to Chris Evans in the mornings, it must be the tone of voice or something.  I would say that proves they do like being talked to, and I think he also has a taste in music as he hates all the modern dancy stuff but loves the tunes from the '80s, especially if you sing along with them!  So I guess the mental welfare folk will be dropping by soon to collect me .....

Oh yes, of course we all talk to them. Can be embarrassing sometimes; yesterday I was doing bits around the field, near the gate, all of a sudden Havoc , at the other end of the field, chucked his head in the air and looked at me; "what?  whats up?" I called, then turned round to see someone walking past the gate looking at me oddly!

And I get greeted good morning to EVERY morning with a whinny, so naturally I have to call "morning boys" back to them....horses have better manners than some people I think!   And you'll get a better conversation!
