I knew she was sitting on the top rail spending time with Lilly, one of our Haflinger mares, and I went to talk with her. . .but stopped instead . . .and just watched.
The horse had moved over a bit and I could see exactly what she was doing.
Lilly stood perfectly still, allowing her to braid her mane. A moment in which girl and horse were content.
It's that horse connection that stirs our soul and rejuvenates us. To just be. . .in their company is enough.
And there are horses who feel the same way about some people .
Let a horse whisper in your ear and breathe on your heart. You will never regret it. ~author unknown
