5 Things I Love About My Horse

1. That velvety, snuffling muzzle

2. Her exquisite, uniquely equine scent

3. That low rumbly nicker when she sees me coming

4. Her complete devotion to carrots and Mrs. Pastures cookies

5. Her saucy trot and bucks when I turn her out in cool weather

I just love my horse! Every time I go to the barn, I always leave in a better mood than when I arrived. I love taking care of her, buying carrots, good hay, Stall Dry.......anything to make her life better makes me happy! I feel very blessed that I am able to have her in my life.

ooo, I do love noses and the smell of a horse. Today I just took a huge whiff.

Then I had to fly spray all over. Ah well. :D

Yeah the smell of fly spray can interfere with the horsey scent! At least we're heading out of fly season now!

Yep, the smell of a horse is the best thing, ever!! Even their manure doesn't stink to me! There isn't anything to not love about them.
Thank you for visiting my blog!

I love all your reasons!

I also love how when I turn around sometimes...as I am walking about getting ready to ride or groom...my mare is standing there...watching me, over her stall guard and saying, "come over and give me a treat"!
Yes...always do leave so much BETTER than when I came.

I work for Bayer Animal Health and I know of a fun Essay Contest about the love riders have for their horses. I have read some of your posts--and I can see you love you horses a lot!

I think you would be interested in the contest and the prize is an all-expense-paid trip for two to the U.S. debut of the world’s leading equestrian championships in Lexington, Kentucky in September, 2010. You can read details at: www.enjoytheridecontest.com.

Please contact me if you want more info, I'd love to talk about the contest!

I cannot imagine life without horses. Their smell, their facial expressions, everything... just melts us mere mortals!
Oh and if you use a fly spray with citronella, it leaves you with a scent of a horse in an orange grove! LOL!

oh man i totally agree! And Thunder LOVES Mrs. Pastures :) Plus they're natural. And nothing beats the unique horsey smell.....except when they ruin it by laying in a pile just hours before then they stifle that lovely scent ;)
