Why horses ARE mans best friend

May 9, 2007 6:13am CST
Dogs are always said to be mans best friend but i have come up with many reasons why horses should be mans best friend: 1) Horses have always been there to transport us humans from place to place. 2) They are very clever animals and will show love and care for their owner. 3) Horses can be used to help humans at work for instance in the mounted police, help third world farmers etc. 4) They provide pleasure for us humans. 5) They are beautiful for the eye and are a friend to us humans. Please write to me about your opinions about horses being mans best friend.

I agree with you. I prefer my horses over my dogs any day. They are far more loyal to me. They follow me just like a puppy, whereas my dogs I have to keep on a leash when I take them out. The only problem with a horse is it can't sleep with you. Although there have been many nights I feel asleep in the stall with one of my horses. *laughs*

OHHHH Yes, Horses are the Best Friend, but in my case i went for dogs and cats because of the $$ money restrictions in our budget, the care, the need for a good place, fields, forrests trails, and vet. expenses... * Horses are in my Dreams and i visit Horses school when i am in "need" LOL

Well, for the same reasons, I've heard them referred to as man's best servant, rather than friend. Despite the fact that I'd much rather build friendship with a horse than with a dog.

I love horses! I grew up in a rural community where there are a lot of Amish. When I was growing up, my friends and I belonged to the 4-H Saddle Club. I enjoyed the trail riding the best and then jumping. You're right about horses. I love dogs also, but there is nothing better than getting on the back of a horse and galloping down a trail or just a leisurely walk. If I lived in a rural area today, like I did then, I would rather ride a horse than get in a car to get where I want to go. Horses are beautiful animals and I hope to someday own another horse. cdejac

I would agree with that. If it wasn't for horses in the past, railroads, buildings, etc. would have taken alot longer to build. Horses were used to deliver mail, carry supplies, wagons, etc. Man would have had it rough without the horse.
