Beauty in a Barn

“Black beauty” describes her well. If the horse is female. I forgot what the teen caregivers said. Regardless Ebony is beautiful. 

The word horse makes me think of the plains. Western movies flash through my memory. I can see those beautiful creatures running free, even if I only see horses at farm fairs. Hosted by high schools and their young staff. 

Horses are one of the most beloved animals in America (Other countries as well). They’re up there will eagles, and we really love eagles. I think it’s a combination of good looks, and practicality. 

Horses were once a main source of transportation, but now most of us are limited to being admirers from a far. There are options like horse lessons, but the price isn’t kind to the average wallet. My limited exposure to horses, like Ebony, makes up for it though. I imagine some people are even less fortunate. 

Horses may or may not be part of an Americans life. No matter how much experience you have the “horse journey” is open to all. As a participant, searching for those rare days when I can pet one of nature’s masterpieces, I am happy.
