After seeing Lizzie last night after a week of not being able to ride for all the car problems and such, I told Phil that I felt like writing love letters to my horse. He thought that was silly and sad, but here we go:
Dearest Lizzie, I adore you. You’re my animal twin; we’re so much alike. No one else would put up with your diva moods and bad tempers, but once you know there’s a job to be done you’re the most competitive creature on the planet. You’re very beautiful, and you know it…and insist on being treated with special care. You scream down the aisles as soon as you see me, and you don’t do that for anyone else. You’re my love and my beauty and I treasure you beyond gold.
There. Silly though it may be, a love letter to a horse. :)
