Horses...Some of my favourite people!
There are thousands of wonderful things about my life. One of my most favourite though, is that I can look out my window and see these... Some wise old bloke (I think it was Winston Churchill...but don't quote me on that!) said that there is something about the outside of a horse that's good for the inside of a man. And he was right...they are soothing, soulful creatures who seem to help you find your place in this crazy mixed up world. At least, I think they are! I haven't 'swung a leg over' one for a few years now...long story, which involved pain, broken bones, an ambulance and a very protracted recovery time! I made the decision to hang up my saddle after that episode (much to the dismay of my men folk...you know the old saying - when you fall off you get right back on...) But, I am certain my life is no less rich without sitting astride. It would, however, be very much less rich with out having these darlings to watch and wander out to talk to and nuzzle with...
