Today we all went to a horse farm. My big girl loves horses. She was allowed to ride out a little, we went alongside. Then she got to pet and feed horses, visit a pony and we got to pet a very curious 3 week old foal. It was a highlight for my kids.
Me? I kept my distance at first. As far back as I can remember, I have the utmost respect for these large animals. But at the latest with the foal, which did not leave my side, it was done around me. Soon I was standing in the enclosure, several huge horses around me. The largest of them, the lead mare, then cuddled with me all the time. That was nice.
I don’t know if I would like to ride myself. But to stroke I come gladly times again.
