Being away from a loved one for a prolonged period of time can be difficult for anyone. A YouTube user named LuckyHoof knew that all too well. When she recently had to leave to her horse for three weeks, she knew the distance would not only be tough on her adoring pet, but on herself, too.
That being said, even she had no idea just how much she’d really be missed! That was until she came back to her horse—who had the most amazing reaction. It’s a good thing the cameras were rolling for this one, because it was truly a special moment!
When you’re away from a close friend or family member for a long period of time, it can be difficult to figure out how to cope. After all, these important people become part of your routine, which is something YouTube user LuckyHoof understood better than anyone.
As the proud owner of a beautiful horse, she knew that any time they spent apart was likely to be hard to bear. So when she recently had to go abroad on vacation, she anticipated the distance to wear on the both of them.
Of course, LuckyHoof was supposed to be relaxing and forgetting about her life back home. She was on vacation! Still, she knew that her best friend was simply standing in the pasture, munching on grass and missing her.
Finally, it was time for LuckyHoof to reunite with her beloved horse. She couldn’t wait! The drive home from the airport was practically unbearable. Only, she had to wonder: how would her equine pal respond to her homecoming? Would she even care?
After all, horses are not like other pets. Dogs, for instance, will often immediately run to be with their owners after some time away. They’ll bark and jump and spin in wild circles; they’ll act like they hadn’t seen their owners for years!
Dogs are almost famous for their excited reactions. It’s as if they’re afraid that you might be gone forever every time you leave the house without them! LuckyHoof fully understood that horses don’t necessarily have the same response…
Finally, after being away for three long weeks, LuckyHoof knew it was time to find out. How would her horse react after she’d been away from home for so long? She threw back the gate, ready to see for herself.
When LuckyHoof approached the pasture, she started to call out to her horse to try to get her attention. She was still standing pretty far away, but she hoped the echo of her voice would carry to the field down below. Would her horse be excited to see her?
Unfortunately, LuckyHoof’s horse didn’t seem to react—at least not in the way her owner had anticipated. Suddenly, thoughts began to circle in LuckyHoof’s head. Had the distance apart caused some rift between the two?
“Here horsey-horse!” LuckyHoof called out, undeterred. Initially, her horse—draped in a heavy coat to keep her warm—appeared cautious and somewhat confused. Who was this person shouting from so far away?
Soon enough, though, the curious horse threw caution to the wind and started sprinting toward the woman. As she drew nearer, she must have finally recognized the person calling to her was her beloved owner!
Still, even though it seemed like the horse was excitedly galloping to be reunited with her owner, there was the off-chance that she wouldn’t recognize her. Was she truly excited, or was she just curious if this person had carrots for her to eat?
As LuckyHoof came face-to-face with her beautiful horse, one thing was immediately clear: her hoofed friend sure was excited to see her again! All the previous doubt was tossed aside, and they could focus on having a happy reunion!
Aw! Horses may not be able to come into our houses or cuddle up with us on the couch, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t still feel a close connection with us. They just express their love a little bit differently!
You’re definitely going to want to watch what happened when the horse and her human finally got close to each other again. You can almost feel the overwhelming emotion from this sweet animal. Just wait until you see them together…
They’re both just so happy. Who knew that horses could express emotion so clearly? It’s the sweetest thing!
