Lost In The Connection


There is something magical that happens when you lock eyes with an animal and find yourself lost in the connection.
 
I love horses but have to admit that I'm a little scared of them too.  This handsome guy seemed as fascinated with me as I was with him.  Reaching my hand out towards him he was a little hesitant, probably sensing my own nervousness. . .  but then he lowered his head and allowed me to stroke him.  I know he couldn't understand me but I spoke to him anyway, low and reassuring.  His eye constantly seeking out mine.
 
His muzzle felt like velvet beneath my fingertips, pure bliss.  One of those rare moments which felt like a true gift.

  6. I'm scared of cows. I know I shouldn't be. It's not as if they are going to attack me and rip my face off is it.
    Yet they unnerve me. I don't like the way they look at me. I don't like that when you walk next to a fence passed their field they all come over to you...and stare. Stop staring at me!

    1. Cows unnerve me too . . . there's definitely something about the way they stare at you. As for attacking you, I think they just might, you can see it in their eyes!
