A very horsey Valentine’s…..

RB Equestrian Blog on 08/02/2018 15:51:21

There are thousands and thousands of quotes about love – some are inspiring, some are bittersweet and some are simply way too schmaltzy.  My favourite is this one from Mother Teresa:

spread love everywhere you go. Let no-one ever come to you without leaving happier’ #PetSelfie - Pippa 

And (slightly turned on its head) this is how I feel about spending time with my animals – even when something’s gone wrong. When you’ve had to spend another hour scouring the field for a lost shoe or spent your Saturday evening at the emergency vet, it’s very rare that time spent with them doesn’t make me happier. 

Of course they almost certainly don’t realise the pleasure they give us nor the fact that they get us outdoors, lower our stress levels and can bring a smile to our face at the end of a very trying day. And to be honest it’s probably just as well that they don’t.  Can you imagine just how smug and unbearable your horse (or dog, or cat, or tarantula!?) would be if they knew exactly how much they meant to you?

So this Valentines let’s make it about our animals as well as our significant others.  How about a special bag of treats for your horse or an extra couple of minutes giving your dog a scratch behind the ears – and if you can do it while snacking on some heart shaped chocolates that have been delivered by a mystery admirer, all the better!

Hope you have a Happy Valentine’s.
