Let's celebrate National Hug Day

Besides celebrating World Sweatpants Day (http://www.cute-calendar.com/event/international-sweatpants-day/6251-world.html), we are also celebrating National Hug Day today! Yay! Time to hug your horses (or beloved ones)! 
On January 1986, Rev. Kevin Zaborney launched the National Hug or Hugging Day in Clio, Michigan. Purpose of this day is to remind everyone to hug others more often. And here is why: hugging has lots of health benefits! It improves psychological and physical development, help building a good immune system, reduce your risk of heart disease and (which I can totally agree with) reduces the level of stress hormone cortisol in women (I would claim: men too ;) ) (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Hug_Day). I tried to find studies on effects of hugging horses – obviously, not too interesting for science yet. Anyway, look at the collage below and you will see without any study what hugging my horse does to me <3
