Horse or House Guest? I Guess, Both
For the record though, I did not authorize this house guest of a horse. My daughter thought of this all on her own and obviously did not seek my permission first. Discarding the thought of what could have happened, that is, lakes of horse urine on the carpet, I now enjoy the photos she took. Fortunately, the horse, Kaycee, behaved herself and just enjoyed checking out the kitchen and searching through the chair for snack crumbs left by her human counterparts.
We share life’s journey with many of our furry friends throughout our life and this horse was particularly special to my daughter. She was nearly blind, but there was a wonderful mutual trust between the two. The horse trusted my daughter and both enjoyed spending time with each other. There was a connection that was stronger than any other.
This was not a one way thing, it was shared. There would be no connection possible if there were not a spirit to connect with. The Bible tells us that animals have their unique spirits as well. In Genesis, it tells us that humans and animals have the “breath of life,” referring to our spirit. In a similar way, we may bond with a particular person’s spirit more than another just like we may bond with particular pets stronger than others.
If you would like to share about a pet that you have particularly bonded with or did fun stuff with, I am sure readers would love to hear, I know I would.
