I am a fan of Horses


“I call horses ‘divine mirrors’ – they reflect back the emotions you put in. If you put in love and respect and kindness and curiosity, the horse will return that” Allan Hamilton

Horses are always fascinating!

They are faithful companions be in wartime, peacetime, beach rides and have been used for transportation.

Equestrian sport is an enjoyable sport for many.

    In this verse, every creature performs their role with utmost dedication. However, the world forgot how helpful horses have been in their respective field as compared to “dogs”
    Hight time we give them enough credit.
    This one is for every horse around 🏇🏇…..

    I agree with your love of horses, Philo. I feel the same way. I didn’t realize their eyes were the largest! Fascinating. I also believe all domesticated animals really can sense our emotions. 😀😀😀. They are wonderful creatures.

      Thank you Lauren.
      Animals sense our moods and our emotions too well.
      Agree about your thoughts on riding a horse.
      It’s a bit scarry that it can throw you down.
      Nothing short of spinal fracture and paraplegia!!
