So without further ado, in honor of my 27th birthday, here are 27 things I've learned from my horse(s):
If you need a quiet place, to get away from all of the noise and clutter, go to the barn. There's nothing more relaxing/refreshing than silence (accompanied by nickers and snorts).
Sometimes you just have to let loose and let it go! A little fun never hurt anyone, right? :)
A person's (or horse's) eyes can tell you a lot about them - whether they're afraid, angry, spaced out, or they simply care.
Nothing is truly free in life - it comes with a price; and there is always something that needs to be done around the barn!
And the best hugs are when your face is buried in your horse's mane.
Everyone has their own interpretations/language.
Have you ever had a cocklebur stuck under your saddle pad, or a horse fly hovering over your horse's head?
It's just an unspoken rule around here...and absolutely no light colored showmanship suits!
If you are unwilling to cooperate, how can you expect anyone else to work with you?
The older you get, the busier you get, and the faster time goes by. Make time for the things that you enjoy, or you won't be able to enjoy life while you have it.
Just do you best and the rest will come.
(And definitely do not brag about limited vet visits - horses have a way of making up for lost time quickly!)
Know your limits, but don't be afraid to challenge yourself to overcome them.
Have you heard of Karma? She's can have an ugly sense of humor.
