I really enjoy spending time with my horses. It keeps me grounded. I love their company, their smell, their personalities and the differences in them. It's daily, the time well spent. Even when I have to work and my husband feeds them in the morning and evening, I still take the time to talk to them when I get home from work in the morning and sometimes give them a treat. They appreciate the time I spend with them. I know they do. I know that in how they spend their time with me. I know that by the nuzzles I receive. The fact that when I'm out there with them, they come to me and drop their heads and let me touch them. I talk to them constantly, touch them, wrap my arms around their necks, kiss their noses, feed them, groom them, pick their feet, clean their space, staighten their blankets. We exercise and they let me ride them. I look forward to the warm days again so that I may spend even more time with them. I look forward to an afternoon spent laying in the pasture with them.
