I played with Cherish today. I gave her full and unconditional love… and of course, as the session went on, it was returned. Soon enough we were happily gallivanting happily around with each other and softly loving on each other, her nuzzling and snuggling in close, and me rubbing and cradling her face. We walked up to my mom, me with a giant smile on my face and her with bright, happy, and peaceful eyes, ears, and lips, and I said “This is better than any extended trot she could ever give me.” and we hung out there like that, together for a while, me cuddling and loving on and hugging her, and for once, her actually, truly enjoying it, and giving in return.
The horse is your mirror.
