It's no secret when I need time to destress from the realities of life, I go into my barn :)
Something about burrying yourself in the mane of the horse is so intoxicating.....
Unless you don't care for the smell of a horse, but then, how weird would that be! Who doesn't love the smell of a horse - I digress.....
These horses, I am so lucky to have them in my life. In my backyard.
I am so lucky that they understand the time constraints I am now under, being a new mom.
But when I do have the time to smother myself into them, they soak up every second.
Last night was one of those nights.
The mini's wanted none of it actually - they were more content with their hay. Apollo could have taken it or left it, and as I attempted to spend some QT time with him, this beauty anxiously awaited her turn! She is so obvious - she just LOVES to be loved.
Look at those kind eyes. If you have read Linda Tellington Jone's book, Getting in Touch, you would be able to read so much about Gypsy just by this picture. And if you haven't read it, and you are a horse person, I highly suggest you do!
There is something so grounding about being with my horses, yet so magical.
Horses allow you to pursue your dreams. Reading that just now makes no sense, but in my head, to me, it does.
I love that my nieces & nephews love the horses. I hope my son does too!
My nephew, Benny, he has a special connection with the horses already. I can see this. And I can't wait to help him progress with it!
I had someone ask me the other day how smart a horse really is. They were honestly just wondering as they had no knowledge of them. I laughed to myself. No matter how much I tried to explain how brilliant they really are, you will never understand until you experience it yourself.
These horses are wonderful creatures. Be still and watch, you will see.
Horses can't talk, but they can speak if you listen.
