While I love horses, I also really adore my dog. Here are some reasons that having a barn dog is the best.
You are never alone
Whenever you’re dreading going out to take care of the animals you know that at the very least, you don’t have to do it alone. You always have a sidekick that tags along while you’re carrying hay out to the fields; one that is more than happy to be out there with you.
You have someone to talk to
Generally when I’m cleaning stalls, it’s in an empty barn, so its nice to have a companion to talk to while you’re thinking through your life decisions. Plus, they are always supportive of your ideas.
You have someone to hug
Sometimes the day doesn’t always go well and a barn dog is always there to hug and pet and snuggle with. They love the attention and they make you feel better. They are always happy to see you.
They are warm
In the winter, fingers can get pretty chilly, and running your fingers through a dogs coat can be just what the doctor ordered.
