- I do not find any of your thoughts corny, Tanya. Even as horse-lovers,
I think we may tend to underestimate their emotions and intelligence.
When I came in the back door to see Chancellor in ICU, he could not see
me for he was 3 stalls away; yet he nickered. (as sick as he was and in
such pain) The tech on duty, that evening, said she had just come
through that door and Chancellor had not nickered. How did he know it
was me? By the sound of my car!! (which I had parked right outside the
door) I had thought only dogs and cats picked up on that.....and I have
been around horses for 60 years.
Yes, Tanya, I am an old timer. :-) You bet I take many walks down
I enjoyed your post. :-)
