Valentine

Science has discovered that when horse and human are in sync, the horse's heart rate will mirror that of the human's.

I had a book of hillbilly wisdom that prescribed interaction with horses for people with mental health problems (don't remember how they put it -- 'snakes in their brains'?) . I wonder if it works the other way -- that they can actually calm us too. Awesome post, Tai.

Nice heart to heart fact of life...A horse is a horse of course, of course. Now I'm singing.

Beautiful. Sorry for blurring the lines of professionalism. :o)

For years I've puzzled over how googly the women in my life get over horses... What is it with women and horses?, men wonder. Well, I still don't get it, but as time goes on I see things like this beautiful, sweet image and it helps me to understand a little bit.

Pete, there are lots of theories out there about the horse/woman connection, but to me it's one of the sweetest mysteries in life.

Hi, Angel, nice to see you here – we're all in favor of blurring those lines.

Joe, thanks for visiting!

Euthymic, I think I know the words to that tune.

Hey T, who knows, maybe someday we'll find out that interaction with horses can cure cancer, as well as psychological problems. Maybe the hillbillies know these things.

Farmgirl, you should see if this experiment works with donkeys.

Smartz, I can't take credit for the photo, but I agree, it's a beauty.

Thanks, Debbie! It's so nice of you to visit...makes Malaysia seem not that far away.
