"God made the horse from the breath of the wind,
the beauty of the earth,
and the soul of an angel."
Yesterday, I received a package from my veterinarian, Misty Parker, at McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital. Whenever they put a horse down, they take a piece of their tail and have a person make the owners an angel.
What a feeling when I opened it--the hair being so familiar to me. I held it against my cheek and it was like touching him again. That's a beautiful gift to give a grieving horsewoman.
