One of the ways of how horses signal affection and love for one another is through vocalizations as well as by actions. They nicker to show happiness when greeting other horses, scratch to show affection, mutually groom one another as a sign of care and attention, and rest their heads over the necks of their pasture mates.
Horses are a demonstrative species, and use many signs that are not verbal to show their emotions. In the video below, a horse is seen bringing some hay to another horse, named Layla. Her sweet boyfriend, T,shown bringing her a bite of hay to eat and giving her some kisses. He comes trotting right up to her, and even gives her a little nicker before offering her the hay. How romantic is this? Layla seemed to take them and both share a sweet little moment together.
Understanding how horses show affection for one another offers insight into how they show affection for their human friends, and helps you understand how to better communicate with your equine friend. Have a look at the video and probably there is one thing that we can learn, that this horse is teaching us what true love is all about!
