But stop for a second. When you think of Love, what do you see? What does it look like?
Does it look like a mother with her child? The depth of feeling and affection she has for the baby she brought into this world?
Or maybe it's the love of friends at play? The shared joy and laughter?
That warm feeling we have for our chosen mate?
Or the Love of a true friend?
Our ability to measure love is directly related to neural responses and the chemical oxytocin. Horses have, and do both things. To my way of thinking, that means horses love. The question shouldn'y be IF horses feel love, but what makes them feel love. Like Yesterday's post about horses being different then dogs, well, horses are also different then people. Horse's love can most closely be compared to that of a child for it's parents. (In my opinion)
And really, how many kids are always good for their parents? Does that mean that the kids can't feel love either? Yeah.... that's what I thought.
