..............Feeling.............. When they've just seen a picture, and they connect with the Horse within the photo.. I know I'll never have him, but if he was a few miles closer and I didn't have a horse, he'd be my next one.. Herbie, the Arab x Percheron
He is 'Gorgeous' and looks as though he would make some one a really nice horse, i'm getting good vibes from him:biggrin:

Not had that feeling from pics but there are horses that I've met that I've felt a certain affinity to... they've not necessarily been mine and some I've felt something for more than I've felt for my own!

Oh I thought that when I saw Herbie!

He just looks so lovely, solid, well put together, what a horse. I hope he goes to someone lovely.

When I saw the advert for my old horse Star, I knew instantly I was going to buy him!

His ad and picture were just perfect and I could have bought him over the phone!

When I first started looking for a loan I came across a horse for sale on horsemart, he was a 14.3 cob, he looked like a mini clydesdale and I kept going back to the photo time and time again :banghead: just wound me up really!

I liked him so much I phoned the lass and asked about bringing him up to me on loan and she said that if he didnt sell in 3 months she would consider it but he sold in a week!

Wasn't looking at what i writing!

Only if i'm reading, as in from a rescue centre or troubled horse maybe.

I really got "attracted" to one particular pony on a website and i felt that was the one before we'd met, but there were so many "blocks" popping up that he obviously wasn't meant to be for me.

Oh he is lovely!!

I've not from a picture but when first saw Luther, a big Irish sports who would normally have scared me with his height and look, in the field at old stables I got the same feeling as when I first saw Scarlet....even tried to work out if I could get OH to buy him so I could be around him lol

Yep! I had that feeling when I saw the picture of JJ on Cortrasna's facebook! Never dreamt he would ever be mine though. The rest is just synchronicity :happy::happy:

He does look like a very handsome chap!

Yes I had that with Shay.

Not sure if anyone remembers but he was called Ted and belonged to a member on the forum, I always felt a 'pull' to him when I saw his pics, and even though he wasn't what I was looking for (apart from the colour and the height) when he needed a new home I just felt like he needed to come home with me.
