Yesterday, as I was grooming Ashke, the older woman who owns Katrina (big Saddlebred mare) commented on Ashke's eye. She said, "That horse has a great eye." She wasn't talking to me, but I did overhear the remark and it made me think about eyes and horses.
They say eyes are the window to the soul.
Ashke has an incredible soul. It shines through everything he does. It especially shines through his eyes.
He has his daddy's eyes. And if you look closely enough you can see thousands of years of history with humans flickering somewhere deep inside. Even when he is grabby and nosey and nippy, his incredible presence overwhelms me.
