He couldn’t wait to see his favorite person.While going on vacation is always fun, coming home can be just as enjoyable.
After a long day of traveling, nothing beats coming home, lying down on your own couch or bed, and simply relaxing.But if you have a pet, you know that coming home after a vacation isn’t just about relaxing.The most amazing feeling in the world is reuniting with your pet.
It’s always magical when you and your pet see each other for the first time after being separated for days or weeks.Your pet is giddy with delight, you are beaming, and all is well in the world.
When you think of reuniting with a pet, you most likely envision a dog or an enthusiastic cat.However, as one woman demonstrates, a horse can get very excited about this reunion with their owner.
After three weeks away, YouTube user luckyhoof has finally returned home.One of the things she was most looking forward to was seeing her horse again.They’d been apart for a long time, and it was clear they missed each other.Their reunion is heartwarming!
Luckyhoof walks around the fields on a cloudy day, looking for her horse.
She eventually finds the horse, who is dressed in a stunning purple coat, grazing in a pasture.He hears someone call his name, but he has no idea who it is.He takes a breather, but then it hits him.It’s his owner’s voice!
Suddenly, the horse gallops as fast as he can towards Luckyhoof.It warms my heart to see such a strong bond between a woman and her horse.So adorable!
You may be wondering after watching this video if horses truly become emotionally attached to their owners.According to an article published by Horses and People, the bond between a human and a dog is not quite the same.
“This may not be surprising when you consider that most dogs live in our homes and are with their owners from the time they are puppies,” said researcher Lina Roth.”However, it is not as common with horses to keep the same individual throughout its life.Furthermore, the horse is a prey animal, and we may need to change the research methodology in order to capture its full behavioral response in these types of studies.”
However, study co-author Elke Hartmann, PhD, of the Department of Animal Environment and Health at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, cautioned that this does not mean horses never form special bonds with their owners. When and how they express attachment behavior may be entirely determined by prior interactions and the situation – where the horse lives, how much time the owner spends with the horse, what they do together, how long the owner has had the horse, and so on.”
This video demonstrates how horses can form bonds with the people they care about and miss them when they are separated.How lovely!
Please keep in mind that the first 40 seconds of this video are a little shaky.If that’s too much for you, please proceed to the reunion!
