“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.” - Mark Twain
Who doesn’t love being pampered and cared for? Non verbal communication through touch / body language / emotions / expressions has been a part of our day to day lives and have been studied for long by Researchers and Scientists. The complexity of such communication gives an innate ability to not only humans but to our friends in the animal kingdom. Animals - domesticated / wild communicate with each other through their keen sense of smell and touch.
Friendships amongst countryside animals on the farm is a delightful sight. Staffordshire Bull Terriers and Minitaure Horses are often bred in English Countryside for farming and show events. Staffordshire Bull Terriers or Staffy as they are popularly known are medium sized short fur English dogs and are the fifth most popular breeds of dog famous for their intelligence, loyalty and fearlessness. Miniature Horses are commonly found in nations across Europe and Americas and are called so due to their height (34 - 38 inches measures to last hairs of their mane). Though they resemble a pony in size, many Miniature Horses retain their characteristics of a horse and are often trained as service horses, driving, agility and competitive show events.
Here is the Staffy and his friend - a Miniature Horse enjoying the beautiful country side weather and the company of each other. The Mini Horse is pampering his canine friend who is thoroughly enjoying the attention and pampering! His smile says it all!!
