It is my no means a secret that cats and horses are my passion. I have always felt that there is a connection between these two species. Many horses enjoy the companionship of a particular horse, and many barn cats are magnetically attracted to them and hang out in their stalls. They also enjoy keeping "their" horses company when turned out to graze.
Even Barbaro, one of the most famous race horses in history,(for whom we will be celebrating his life next week) was happy to have one of his own feline fans.
I do have irrefutable proof however, of what may appear to some folks to be the epitome of the "Odd Couple". But in reality, cats and horses have been buddies for eons.
Rhoda's photograph of one of her barn cats, Chung, with her equine pal, Sugar demonstrates their purrfect relationship.
Rhoda writes,"Guess Chung has been watching my daughter ride too much. He is now showing off how easy it is for a cat to ride bare back on Sugar. Bare back riding is not only for humans anymore."
According to Rhoda, Chung is a furry to both her horses and her dog. Seems to me that Chung is kitty with excellent taste! Do you agree?
