Out of the Mouths of Horses – Wise Words for Us All

Copper's Current Herd Mates, Gabriel (l) and Bella (r)

Copper's Herd Mates, Gabriel (l) and Bella (r)

So. After my last post,  let’s go back to Copper to see if he has pondered long enough to come up with a comment for the blog:

“Copper, what would you like to say to everyone? Are you ready? Have you had enough time to ponder this question?”

“Yup. Like I already told you: I’m old and I’m wise and I love and appreciate my peers,” Copper replied, swinging his head around to look at his herd mates on the word ‘peers.’ “Everyone should be like this.”

“Can you say a little more about what you mean?”

“I mean, everyone should appreciate their fellow beings, pay attention to them, follow them, stay with them, be a part of them. This would alleviate much of the suffering in the world.”

“How so?”

“Because when you focus on someone else you don’t feel so much of all the things that are wrong with yourself.”

“Do you mean like aches and pains?”

“And worries. Worries is the important part. You know.”

“I do. I get your drift. And yours are wise words indeed, and I will gladly pass them on for all to consider. I hope you know you are just about the most highly revered and respected being on this property. Do you know that?”

“Who’s more?”

“No one. I mean, everyone is important in their own way, but I guess I should say you are THE most revered and respected, and it does indeed have much to do with your seniority and life experience. You have always showed great integrity in all your dealings, and yet have never been afraid to show your fears and weaknesses.”

Shuffling his feet and feeling a bit shy from the compliment, “Gee.”

“We all love you very, very much, and thank you for passing on your thoughts to others. And thank you for being you.”
