So anyways as I was driving to equine therapy I was thinking about it, and when I got there I ended up talking about it with Julie. It sort of brought up a lot of my old memories of when I was a kid.
The whole time I was talking with Julie, I was petting Brownie, and she kept coming over and leaning her head down by me, like she was giving me a horse hug!
Brownie was looking out the window of her stable to see if the grain cart was coming. I had just started telling Julie about something particularly unfortunate. Just then, Brownie turned her head towards me and gave me a horse hug. Then she put her head right in front of my face and seemed to be looking into my eyes,. which is difficult for a horse to do since their eyes are on opposite sides of their head. And then guess what! She gave me a kiss! I never realized horses could kiss people! She put her lips on my forehead and tickled me with them lightly.
I really feel like she sensed I was feeling kind of bad, and she was trying to show me some love.
Every time I think about it I start smiling and feeling happy!
When I first got there and went in Brownie's stall, Julie took two pictures of me and Brownie. I wanted to post the alienized versions here so you can see me with my horse friend!
I love animals so much. If I could be around animals every minute of my life, I'd be happy. Some people tell me I should have been a vet. But I actually don't think I would like that, because a lot of animals don't like going to the vet, and I would have to give them shots and even put some of them to sleep, and that would be really upsetting to me. But I wish I could live on a farm
Maybe next time I will take a picture of the burritos who live in the barn! If you have never petted a burrito's nose, you should definitely put that on your bucket list.
Okay, I have to disappear now. POOF! ::cloud of smoke::
