How to See Affection On the Part of a Horse?
In their usual habitat, horses actively groom each other and constantly show affection. They can bite each other or touch their noses. But how to understand that a horse has become attached to a person? Horse owners shared how these animals can show their love for humans.
There are several signs, they said. Most often, everything manifests itself in a banal embrace. If the horse tilts its head towards you and tries to touch, this is a direct signal of affection. They also show love with the help of low sounds, similar to clicking.
The experts also clarified that people often misunderstand the meaning of horse gestures and react to them correctly. For example, don’t try to stroke the horse’s face with your hand. In this case, you will simply bring discomfort to the animal.
It is also worth allowing the horse to show his love and not try to do something in return. Otherwise, you risk ruining your relationship with your pet in the bud. Remember that horses are susceptible, and the relationship between them is built on a trusting two-way basis. Therefore, you should first get some kind of attention from the animal. And only then try to do something in return.
