Hello LeadMare, guest bloggers, and fellow JBs. Today instead of writing from the humans perspective, I will (try) to write in the eyes of a horse. Here goes—

Life in the Eyes of a Horse
Photo by: R’eyes

Every morning as I wake up I am happy. For life, for friends, and for all those who love me. I am simply a horse, yet I feel as though I am not limited to the equine boundaries. I can fly like an eagle, race like a cheetah, and love like the beings in heaven. I know many secrets that are only limited to our equine minds. Yet some of those secrets you will figure out in time. It’s complicated, yet once you know the simplicities, all the challenge will be figured out. My friend has now arrived. Though she is not a horse, I still love her like she is an equine. She is the one who feeds me, grooms me, and most of all loves me!

As I am led out to my paddock I think about my wild friends. They run free, wherever they plan to go, they are not captivated. I wish I was free. Yet if I was I would not know what I know now. I know why God created horse — not for their tremendous beauty, or their hard work, but to make people smile. When a small girl walks by me. I see a little smile. And that makes me smile!

Now this could be a never ending story, but I now will reveal my secret: I am a horse, nothing more, yet I know more than any animal. Even if someone may not look good, they could be beautiful inside. And so that is it. A small sentence that you have probably heard a million times. Such a small thing that it has been forgotten. So next time, just remember — never look down on another being, unless you are helping them up.

Okay, what do you guys think? Thanks for reading!

Yours truly,
