From time to time, people tell me, “Lighten up, it’s just a horse“, or, “That’s a lot of money for just a horse“.
They don’t understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for “just a horse“.
Some of my proudest moments have come about with “just a horse“.
Many hours have passed and my only company was “just a horse“, but I did not once feel slighted.
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by “just a horse“…
And in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of “just a horse” gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
“Just A Horse” brings out what’s good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.
I hope that someday they can understand that it’s not “just a horse” but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being “just a girl”.
So, the next time you hear the phrase “just a horse“, just smile, because they “just” don’t understand ♥
