Horses are magical. I love them. They are way more than those beautiful creatures you see grazing in the fields as you drive by in your car. Up close, they are still beautiful creatures, but their personalities are just as huge as they are. To be lucky enough to hang out in a barn with them on a gorgeous afternoon is really a blessing. It is a different world for sure. The sounds, sites and smells of horses are intoxicating.
Every horse is different. Some are frisky, some are hams, heck, some are boring! Not Shane, though…far from boring! Let’s just list the adjectives….Shane is gorgeous, silly, stubborn, loving, friendly, charismatic and did I mention, stubborn? Together, Shane and Angie make a magical pair. It’s obvious, Shane loves Angie. When she moves, he moves; when she talks, he listens; and when she takes a step, so does he…sometimes he steps on her, but that’s a different story! Shane will certainly do what you ask him to, but if he isn’t happy about it, he lets you know. He’s just a little boy at heart. Getting him to pose was entertaining! If we made him stand too long he started stomping his foot and shaking his head. Angie would scold him, and he would ignore her. But, the coolest thing is that they are a team and it really shows.
