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.
If you think it's just a horse, then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," just a sunrise," or "just a promise."
Just a horse brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. Just a horse brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.
Because of just a horse I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future
So for me and folks like me, it's not just a horse but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
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 woman/man."
