I Talked to a Horse

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.

Once Julie whinnied at a horse and it whinnied back.
I need to be around horses, too.

There is a bulldog at the dog park sometimes and he is very funny. Cost more than $1000 though. Yes. I meant to put 3 zeros. And he eats furniture.

I hope you find your horse for the house :)

Maybe you could get a big dog and call it a horse! Or just call it "Horse".

Thanks for the good comments. I've never been around horses a lot. If we do get a dog, it's going to have to be a small dog. But I think calling it "Horse" might be fun.
