A horse walks into a bar. The bartender asks “Why the long face?”
Oh, you’ve heard it? never mind 😋
I spotted this old dear while out on a daily walk. She looked incredibly fed-up with the world and seemed pleased to see me, with a little nuzzle to my shoulder. I obliged by giving her a gentle stroke.
I would love to have given her a penny for her thoughts. I wonder what she was thinking? Who’s the weirdo, perhaps? Hopefully my short interjection gave her a few moments of happiness. I’ll make a point of stopping by at least once a week, just to offer her a greeting.
- If you see a horse at a gate, do be cautious when approaching. Not all are amicable, and they can give a pretty nasty bite. I was once bitten on my left tit 😂 when I was younger, and swiftly learned my lesson.
Allow the horse to approach you – but take note of their ears – if forward, it’s generally OK. If ears are flat against the head, and nostrils flared, or you see a swinging head and stomping feet – stay away.
Also, never feed a horse. It could be on special medication, or you could be giving them something that could cause harm, such as bloat – which can be fatal. Besides, you wouldn’t want a stranger feeding your child, would you?
I call horses ‘divine mirrors’ – they reflect back the emotions you put in. If you put in love and respect and kindness and curiosity, the horse will return that.Allan Hamilton
