People, throughout my life, have always said, “Gee, that horse sure likes you!”
Well, I have a secret….
My whole life, I’ve always felt that breathing at a horse (since they like to meet people through breath AND are vegetarians)…, I’ve always felt that breathing at a horse with meat breath, or carnivore breath, was probably rude. Or at least not a good idea.
I mean, first impressions, right? If you met someone who was a little smelly in a bad way, you’d probably remember that before the good stuff.
Same with horses, I figure.
So, I always ‘freshen my breath’ before meeting a new horse. I pretty much try to eat apples or carrots or something appetizing when I’m around my own horses as well.
Why not? Couldn’t hurt, could help.
And, I think it is why a lot of horses decide that maybe they might like me after all. Or at least I might be worth their time.
Here is a video of Dalton, who has only met me a few times, departing from his herd to come over.
