Why Doesn't My Horse Love Me?

│”"Know thyself?" If I knew myself, I'd run away.”  — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Ann Landers is credited with saying, “Don’t accept your dog’s admiration as conclusive evidence you are wonderful.” For hard evidence of your awesomeness you need a horse. As it turns out a horse sees you much the same way people see you. The difference is the horse is more honest in his response. All horse people are aware of this at some level. Some of us embrace their raw honesty, others not so much.

As humans, seeing ourselves as we are can be the most difficult and yet the most rewarding of all endeavors.

│ “Those who are brutally honest are seldom so with themselves.”  — Mignon McLaughlin



If you are willing to look into the mirror that is the horse you may not like everything you see. Yet, there is no more pleasant path to self-improvement. If you want a genuine test of your character and emotional wellness, ask a horse.
