While today is a sad day for me (anniversary of my friends passing)
I will still never forget the way the horses treated me that day, I had been seeing my neighbors horses everyday for about 2 years at that point he’s an older guy and appreciated the help (feeding, grooming, small amount of riding, and just hanging out in pasture)
After I got the horrific call the only safe place felt like going to the barn, I will never forget…
The horses all came up to me one by one being extremely gentle, then one of the older horses placed her head up against me and just stood there, letting me cry into her mane for several minutes. It was this surreal moment.
I’ve seen it other times over the years as well, one day recently I was feeling sad after losing my heart horse to an accident and sitting in a shady corner of the pasture, the yearling came
up to me and stood there quietly with her nose a few inches from my shoulder.
Horses are just amazing and will always appreciate these moments of comfort from them.
Anyone else have stories?
