Since the first part of ownership of my mare, I have kept a running tally- in- mind- of all the ways she has taught me about myself. She too, is very sensitive. She is all animal and instinct. Me being human, I have reasoning thought and intellect and free will.
I have been amazed at her language to me, specifically, as we both have been abused. My lessons are numerous and I have so grown to understand her much more and appreciate her efforts as I accept my own inabilities to cope sometimes and move forward. These are very valuable nuggets of information. I often apply them in my life, with other humans!
While I could make a list of 20 or better- of the funny ways she teaches me about me as she tells me about herself...I want to savor the lessons here..one at a time.
(Obviously..I started with one of the funniest ones..oh! I need to loose weight!)
