You know the only thing that has changed over the years is US! Kids with horses are still creating those bonds and they always seem to be closer and more in tune with the horses than we are as adults. Oh, I know, we strive to learn equine body language and pick up on moods and we really, really want our horses to like and hopefully love us.
Why does it seem so easy for kids??
Or at least some kids??
Hmmmmm??? Maybe we need to put the pooper-scooper down once in a while and just BE with our horses. Maybe all of the things that people tell us is proper and important AREN'T really that important and this(see the series of pictures above) IS!!
I know that after watching Megan with her horses for a little bit, I put the scooper and the wheelborrow away and just spent the next hour just BEING with my horses.
DAMN THAT FELT GOOD!!!
PS-No treats were involved. Megan was laughing her fool head off because when she scratched their lips-Rip(the blue roan) would wiggle his top lip and Strawberry(the strawberry roan) would wiggle his bottom lip. And the last picture is of Megan backing Strawberry with just her feet. Wasn't she a fashion statement today-sheez!!
