Yesterday when I went to back out of my parking space at work to go home I suddenly heard a loud whinny of a horse. It sounded like he was right behind me. I stomped on the brake so I wouldn't hit him if he was behind me. I turned around and looked and he was in a horse trailer about 25 feet away. The windows in the trailer were wide open and the head of the horse was sticking out of a window about as far as it could go. I'm pretty sure he was trying to get my attention.
I pulled around so my car window was facing the horse, and I started talking to him. He listened to me very carefully. Finally I put the car in gear and started to leave. The horse blew very loudly through his nose--lots of splatter--as if to say, "You're leaving way too soon. I need more attention." But it was time to go.
Later I told my husband that I needed to be around horses. He told me maybe I just needed a dog. And maybe I do. So when are we going to get one? I would like to have an English bulldog--but not likely. I would also like to have a miniature horse that I can keep in the house.
