Why are horses a part of my life? I think that most of us who really must have horses in our lives are actually born to do so. It's something that grabs you as a child and never goes away. Almost an obsessive need. My horses are those that entertain me, listen to me after a hard nights work, ask nothing of me but to make sure they are fed and cared for, even though I ask of them. They are spiritual. A very calming influence on me. A kind eye. A warm nuzzle. There is nothing like the feeling of trust between human and horse. They trust me to care for and protect them and I the same. A majestic creature that symbolizes freedom and spirit. Best friends. Beautiful to look at. My mares, one a silent and solid introvert and one a talkative and colorful extrovert. A perfect balance. I am thankful for all equines. Even those that are not mine. Thankful for the time they give me. Thankful for what they have taught me. Thankful for their beauty. Thankful for the inner peace they give me.
