Why Horses are Better Than People



It's COLD here in lower Michigan today. Here's a pic of Clifford standing out in the pasture. He's been digging for grass.

Tonight I am watching "Changing Lanes", a film starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Affleck. The cast also includes two of my favorites: William Hurt and the wonderful Toni Colette. The story is about two individuals who meet in a car accident. It sends them on separate routes of personal crisis. Recoiling from the escalating aftershock, they set out to screw each other over in a bevy of methods that are painful to watch.

In "Changing Lanes" both the characters eventually come to their senses; acknowledging their mistakes and recognizing their humanity. They do the right thing! If only life could be like that.

If everyone had a horse I think the world would be a better place. Being around them makes us better people.
