My own horse, Charlie, definitely brings out the best in me. He is sweet, loving, forgiving, curious, and always greets me enthusiastically.
As a self-employed business woman, I have to work long, hard hours, seven days a week. The last time I took time off from work was three years ago when I got married. When I am logging in those long hours I often think about Charlie; how he smells, and his soft nickers. Charlie is my screen saver. Isn’t that a true test of someone you love?
He listens to just about anything I have to say, and never gives me grief when I show up late.
I think that one of the hallmarks of a great friendship is that feeling of being close even when you are apart. I feel that way about Charlie.
Is your horse your best friend, too?
