It’s Just A Horse-for You, Mak

It’s been just over 2 weeks since Mak was euthanized. It’s still raw
to try to talk about it.  The woman I bought Mak from sent this
missive to me…Deb had loved him for more than 20 years before
I did. I think it’s so worth passing on…
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/.” ~
