We all have sweethearts, don’t we?
Really. We do — our beloved horses around the world.
Every one of them are our sweethearts, full of love, ready to give and receive love.
Even those horses who appear shy, or not very sociable, they are sweethearts too. There is a loving heart inside that waits only to be encouraged by the patience, trust and love of someone else.
It may be another horse who befriends them, loving them, caring for them, and giving them hope and understanding.
Perhaps it is a kind human who offers them a loving touch, holds them when they are frightened, or suffering and feeling alone — and that the world is anything but a place where there is love for them.
Someone who lies next to them and comforts them in their final hours, maybe showing them love for the first time in their lives. Even if for a few days, hours, or simply moments — they knew there was some love in the world for them.
For anyone who has been loved by a horse, who have heard those welcoming nickers, you know there is no other feeling like it. You have been accepted into their herd, their family. They see you as one of them, and there is no higher tribute than that from a horse.
We have added a page to our current website that existed on our former website. It is called “Horse Quotes”.
It is very inspirational. There is a lot of love on that page. There are quotes from people who have loved and been loved by horses, or been awed by their beauty, grace, warmth and elegance.
Here is a sample:
- When your horse follows you without being asked,
when he rubs his head on yours,
and when you look at him and feel a tingle down your spine…
you know you are loved.
~ John Lyons
With love to you, our dear followers and fellow horse advocates, on this special day — Have a Happy Valentine’s Day.
