Wee Bit of History March 15, 2009
I am an equine veterinarian:
graced to work with horses, such wonderful steeds of wind.
Touch is important to herd animals, such as horses. They nuzzle each other, groom each other and will breathe a last shared breath with their mates who are dying.
Horses are the wind formed into substance so that we humans may see their loyalty and beauty.
Whether I am being a doctor, composing a sonata, writing a poem or taking a photograph, it is my interaction with horses that lets my heart sing. The codas, the variations, the change of keys occurs when other species enter in the chorus.
How blessed I am. How blessed indeed with all my animal friends.
