"Just A Horse"

I seen this online today and was very touched by it. Just thought I'd share.

From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, its just a horse" or, "that's a lot of money for just a horse". They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, of the costs involved for "just a horse". Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a horse", but I did not feel slighted. Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a horse", and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a horse" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day. If you, too, think its "just a horse", then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend", "just a sunrise", or "just a promise". "Just a horse" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust and pure, unbridled joy. "Just a horse" brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person.Because of "just a horse", I will ride early, take long walks and look longingly to the future. So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a horse" , but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past and the pure joy of the moment. "Just a horse" brings out whats good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a horse", but a thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a woman". So, next time you hear the phrase, "just a horse" - just smile, because they just donít understand.
