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.

  2. 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.
