My mare is a big reality check for me. I see a lot of traits in her that are in myself. (Big grudge holders
) While at the same time, I inspire to be more like her. I want to have a good work ethic like she does. She teaches me to keep going even when I feel like giving up, and that I need to take things slow. She often reminds me when I do something she considers disrespectful by being disrespectful to me. We teach each other, we learn new skills together, play together, have fun together, laugh together, cry together, fight with each other. I believe that things happen for a reason, and for whatever reason, she came into my life. If there was one thing I could say to her, I would say thank you. Thank you for everything you've put me through, because you push me to be better, and for that, I am so grateful.
