Oh yes, I'm a beauty :D

I needed this today

For love at first sight. Gives %{coin_symbol}100 Coins to both the author and the community.

  1. Sex without intimacy is just sex. I'm not a psychologist, but I've been in situations that mirror what OP has stated. My last sexual experience was over 10 years ago, and even though I wish it could have been better in hindsight, I dodged a bullet. She was obsessed with marriage and having kids and I had (and still have) no desire to deal with that shit. I'd rather be FA than to have to support and deal with kids I have no interest in. Call me an asshole for that, but it's not my cup of tea.

  2. Ain’t nothing wrong with that. A family ain’t for everyone. Especially kids…

  3. It's a double-edged sword, at least for me. I'm more than happy to engage with my friend's kids (especially the ones that are interested in horses), and I think nothing of it other than having fun. Most of it is reliving my carefree days as a kid and transposing that happiness and freedom; missing those bygone days and being a bit jealous that I can't go back in time.

  4. What a cutie! Where are you located? And is riding in the snow actually fun or just something Californians think looks fun? Lol

  5. I'm in New Hampshire. I have yet to ride in the snow as I'm more of a fair weather fan, but it's definitely on my list. I would love to ride on the beach local to me, but haven't had the chance to...Yet.

  6. That's one of the cutest nicknames I've heard for a horse T_T

  7. It was her racing name. Her personality definitely fits it perfectly!

  8. She's a unique case. She isn't a fan of people touching her withers or back, but will let me touch her face and kiss her nose. She has chiropractic issues in her back from being started too early, which is sad and pisses me off, but she loves being the center of attention.

  9. Such an adorable goof. Love the looks going on.

  10. She's definitely a work in progress. She can back up with voice/hand commands, and she [mostly] wants to be with me in my space. Once the winter weather pisses off, I'm going to focus on a lot of ground work with her.

  11. I have edited my new Reddit avatar using external tools, to include

  12. If you don't mind, could you share how you achieved this feat? I'd love to create what you did, but with my silly mare.

  13. Love it! I have two very kisses foals right now, and I hope they stay that way! Your girl gives me hope it's not just a baby phase! 😭❤️❤️

  14. It is a part of the baby phase, but you can mold it to be something they do into adulthood. Just be sure to set boundaries and make it happen on your terms, not theirs.

  15. Just make sure they haven't been drinking water prior. It can get sloppy, face or forehead 😆

  16. If you've taken a horse hair out of your mouth with your hands covered in horse grease, sand and possibly poo.

  17. I've had many a horse snoot in my face after they've been rooting around the ground, which may have contained poo. 😆

  18. A friend of mine used to work with the Budweiser Clydesdales when they were stabled in my state, and keeping their feathers clean was quite a task.

  19. He clearly also absorbs cuteness of those ponies.... So pretty!

  20. I'm loving those fuzzy ears and would die to kiss that nose. I have a reputation for kissing horse noses, though I politely ask permission from the horse before attempting.

  21. Post context is irrelevant, I'm giving an award because he looks so damn adorable. I'm virtually booping that snoot and giving those ears some scritches.

  22. You know how people always say "humans don't deserve dogs" on every video of a dog being wholesome/helpful? I'd extend that to say "humans don't deserve animals".

  23. I honestly don't know how I deserve my horse, but having spent almost seven years with her, we definitely deserve each other. We've built a bond that most people on the outside looking in are fascinated by, but I know that we trust each other despite the times when she's being a pest (looking for treats because I enabled her 😆)

  24. Goffstown, Weare, Dunbarton and New Boston are great places to make home. Out of the way of the big cities but still close enough to enjoy the scene of the "big" cities.

  25. "Celtics" is pronounced "selltix" when applied to the basketball team. This could surprise someone from Ireland.

  26. Though it's not a surprise when you look at the mascot for the team. It's merely a matter of inflection of the language spoken.

  27. In most cases, yes, it's true. Unexperienced riders do more harm than good on a horse.

  28. Truth. I wouldn't trust anyone who hasn't worked with my mare on the ground to ride her. She is sassy and likes to spook at random times. I'm used to it, but someone who isn't tuned to her idiosyncrasies might not do so well.

  29. Yup. I wouldn't dream of asking to ride someone's horse lol. When I had my first, my friends would ALWAYS ask to hop on for a spin. LOL no, you'll ruin my horse and probably end up with something broken.

  30. I'll definitely ask if I can interact with the horse first, whether it be giving treats or lots of scratches. I'm a firm believer in the adage: "If you can't handle a horse on the ground, you don't deserve to be on its back."

  31. Red sky at night, sailor's delight. Not in Oklahoma, of course 😆 Beautiful capture, though!

  32. My deepest condolences. I've been through it countless times, and I sympathize with what you're going through.

  33. You get online catalogs for your manly bits or the western store. That's it. Didn't you get the memo with the rest of us that only girls ride horses?

  34. Western is easy because it’s pretty much just jeans which are foolproof.

  35. Joddies and half chaps are things you need to try on to make sure the fit is right.

  36. Half-chaps for me aren’t a huge problem, but I recently bought some full-seat men’s breeches off Amazon and thankfully they fit well. They have good stretch so I’m happy with them.

  37. Yes those are his normal eyes, we don’t know what’s wrong with him other than he’s French /s

  38. Not an expert, but his eyes seem normal as you stated. He doesn't seem aggressive based on how his ears are. We have a horse at the rescue who will move her ears to an "aggressive" position, but it's just how she is. She'll give me her nose for kisses and readily accepts treats. 🤷‍♂️

  39. A bit of a segue from the normal comments, but I would suggest working with horses. It might seem a bit of an odd suggestion, but the amount of therapy they can provide is absolutely amazing. I'm approaching 40 and have absolute shit luck with women, but when I'm with my horse everything else in my life melts away.

  40. My horse. She's been my rock for almost seven years, and I'm more than blessed to have her in my life.

  41. Years ago I was at a doctors appointment and was attracted to one of the receptionists at the office. I bit the bullet and asked her out. She said no, but even though I was despondent in the moment, I found a way to let it roll off my back. My military training helped me to just suck it up, but it was still a hard hit.

  42. As a trainer that has been teaching kids for the better part of 15 years, I have only had TWO boys that actually have continued their equestrianism beyond childhood. I have always been fascinated by this. I never understood it. Both the boys had much better strength/muscle memory. They had Way less self preservation than girls and didn’t overthink complicated matters on horseback. Mentally, the boys just handled the psychology of riding naturally. The girls usually had to learn to to be the leader.

  43. I do believe it's a cultural thing depending on where one lives. For instance in Texas, a young boy would be encouraged to learn to ride a horse as well as play football. When I started taking lessons (2015) I was told by my instructor that I was doing things in a few weeks that would take most of her students months. This, of course was because I was much older and had more determination to learn, though my self-preservation in terms of not falling off and getting injured were also at the forefront of my mind.

  44. My wife and I took a ride through the hills on the Double R in AZ this fall; was one of the best rides I've ever taken in my life. I'm not affiliated whatsoever, just very impressed. Was my wife, me and the wrangler for 3.5 hours in the saddle walking up and down steep rocky grades with epic views. Can say enough how great it was.

  45. I miss Arizona. Spent a week there back in 2006 and was in heaven. Sadly, I wasn't interested in horses at the time, but I would love to go back and explore on horseback.

  46. Product testing. Making sure QC isn't slacking 😆

  47. I'm closing in on 40, have no kids and I'm absolutely happy. My solace is my horses, and they're pretty much like kids most of the time; being sassy and constantly pestering me. Benefit of that is they're easy to clean up after and I don't have to pay for college 😆
