i love that even when my horse is out in the 10 acres, eating, and he sees my car he will canter across it to meet me at the driveway. playfully bucking, striking and nickering his way over to me.
i love that my horse is so confident that he will come join in while we build a goat shed. just hanging out while we run circular saws, nail guns and screw guns. none of that phases him as long as he gets to be part of it all.
i love that my horse has two goats to move around, gather up, sometimes chase. and when he nickers to them, they come gallumping, in their awkward way, to his call.
i love that my horse will come stand with his head inside the feed shed while i get his dinner ready, but will NOT come INTO the feed shed.
i love that when i take him his dinner he will stand patiently outside of his house while i fill the feeder and get everything ready. i love that he will NOT enter until i tell him to.
i love that my horse will stand patiently for me to open the gate to his pen so he can go out and eat. he will stand there until i tell him he can go out the open gate.
i love that my horse calls to me whenever he sees me outside and will leave his food to come see what i'm doing.
i love that when he hears me reading to my boys in the backyard during homeschool he will come find us and then beg to be allowed into the yard to eat while we sit out there working.
i love that my horse is my partner.
i love parelli.
