Hanging out at a Horse Ranch, loved it!
Seeing and being around these magnificent creatures was amazing! I’ll be honest, I was a little nervous at first because, well, I was raised in the city and never had many opportunities to hangout, chill and converse with creatures this big.
At one point, I was thinking, “What if one of these horses decided to lunge at me, like an attack dog!” That’s when I looked over and observed a sign on the door that read, “No Lunging”. Coincidence!? I don’t think so! I was also in awe because I had no idea horses could read! Liz, one of the ranch owners had to explain to me what “lunging” meant in ranch terminology. It had nothing to do with what I had thought, thank goodness.
One of the horses was only 2 feet from me when it accidentally touched an electric fence. Holy Crap! It jumped up and back like a thousand pound cat! Ugh….I had to check if I soiled my shorts! Geez….
I’ve always known it in the back of my head that these beautiful creatures can be very friendly, but until experiencing it first hand…..it was awesome!
