Thought, fact and quote for the day 23/3/12

Thought 4the day: Life is full of twists and turns, friendships and squabbles, tit for tat, love and loss. Horses go through all of these emotions too not just us humans. They grieve when they lose a herd member they grieve when they lose that love one as they played an important part. They love us unconditionally once that bond is formed some can take years some months some instant. Each horse has trodden a different path and gone down dofferent roads some may not have been nice ones but look where they ended up. They find happiness in the end we all do. It just takes time. Cherish and love your friend and they will do the same back.
 
 
Fact 4the day: The horses auditory (hearing) sense is quite good, and its hearing range is comparable to that of a human. Horsemen should pay close attention to the horses ear position because it usually indicates where the horses attention is focused and what its intentions are. The horses olfactory (smell) sense is well developed, and it uses olfaction in investigating its surroundings and in id...entifying other horses. It has an accessory olfactory organ, the vomeronasal organ, that assists in analyzing odors. Both male and female horses use this organ, but its use especially is prevalent in stallions during courtship. The flehmen (lip curl) behavior of horses, in which they raise their noses, extend their heads, roll up their upper lips, and pull air into their nostrils, concentrates odors in the vomeronasal organ for analysis. The horses tactile (touch) sense has not been studied extensively, but it is obviously sensitive and is utilized considerably by man in riding and training the horse.
 
 
Quote 4the day: The words “Hope”, “Love”, and “Dreams” are synonymous with horses
