8 Qualities Of A Heart HorsePosted on November 8, 2017
Do you believe in the idea of a heart horse?
You know, the once-in-a-lifetime horse that cannot be compared to others. The horse that stole your heart even though you have had or will have many others. The horse whose memory you just can’t shake. For me, that was Odie.
Will all my future horses be compared to Odie? I hope not. Every horse should be given a chance to be themselves and be appreciated for their own uniqueness.
So what is it that makes a heart horse so different?
It’s not just their unique personalities that set them apart. It’s also the fact that they accompany us through the happiest moments of our lives and stand by us through the worst. These associations can never be replicated.
Here are 8 traits a good heart horse should have:
1. Once-in-a-lifetime match
Even though they drive you crazy sometimes, you know your life would not be the same without them.
2. They are priceless
You know the saying “everything is for sale”? Blasphemy! You’d live in a cardboard box before consider giving up your heart horse!
3. They make you feel whole again
They greet you like a returning war hero, even if you’ve only been out of the barn for five minutes. Who knows how they do it, but they pretty much ease the pressures of life.
4. We can’t stop thinking about them
Blowing off social outings for your heart horse doesn’t make you boring, it means you know what’s more important.
5. Capable of things only when you’re the one that asked it of them
Jump that 3’ oxer? Sure! Gallop past cows? Easy! Jump off a bridge? Only if you will!
6. Teach us more than any other horse
Their companionship, loyalty and unconditional love is unmatched.
7. They’re impossible to find
They find us instead.
8. There isn’t anything you wouldn’t do for their sake
You don’t see them as just a horse, they’re your family!
