Who knew that when you give a horse a kiss, he’ll give you one right back?

This horse is so sweet and affectionate. This totally made our day. It is so much better than most of the things you see when browsing around. It’s short and sweet, and it has a happy ending.

You know what they say. If you don’t have a picture, it didn’t happen. Well, this happened and there is video to prove it. Very charming video, as a matter of fact. It’s enough to make an animal lover cry.

This young man took a trip to visit some horses. Naturally, he had his phone ready. He decides to go for the sensitive look, and gives the beautiful horse a nice kiss on the side of his face. The horse must have believed there was really something going on between the two of them, because he returns the kiss with real feeling (but almost no slobbering). They might not have a future together, but it was great while it lasted.

That’s all there is to it. But thanks for posting, selfie guy! You are perhaps a better person than the people who post gross medical stuff, or terrifying animal attacks, or other things we can’t mention.

A final thought from a discussion about horse affection: when a horse gently brings his head even slightly in your direction, it is affection and acknowledgement (unless you are holding a treat in your hand or pocket, then it is probably about the treat).
