Grey Horse 2021
I've written in my blog about the events surrounding the discovery of Stormy, the wonderful five year old horse that appeared in my life last February. Now, a year since this magical being came into my life, my involvement has only gotten deeper and better. He is a very big guy, and still kind of a baby, the equivalent of a 15 year old person. In order for us to work together, just as I am becoming part horse, he is becoming part human. I have a sense of wonderment of being part of this animal, of learning to understand his body movements and for him to learn read mine: what his ears are telling me, how subtly can I move my body and still have him respond, what is he trying to tell me when he bobs his head down and won't let me put the bridle on? Is something wrong, or is he just being a teenager? When I think of all that has gone wrong in this past 12 months(and who knew it would get SO bad)I have Stormy to think of, and it makes it better, a little glow in the darkness.
