Animal Speak

One of our neighbors has a horse and every now and then he literary "parks" her next to our house, she is on an empty lot and can eat as much grass as she'll like.

In the past we have bought this big, long carrots at the grocery store and when we know that the horse is around we feed her, she loves it.

Yesterday afternoon after a very hot and humid day (but no rain) I was watering my yard, first I started with the back yard and then slowly I moved to the front. As soon as got to the front, the horse came out of the bush and gave me the most perfect stare and I immediately knew that she was telling me; she was thirsty and wanted water.

So I went to the back, looked for a bucket, clean it and filled it up with water, walked towards her and put it where she could reach it... she was super thirsty.

Less than 5 minutes later she was ready for more, but this time the bucket was pretty close to her, and although I am not really scared of horses, I have had not so pleasant encounters with some in the past, and that's why I like to be cautions about them.

So I approached her, look her in the eye and said: -If you'll like more water just push the bucket towards me... And immediately she did! WOW, it was magical, we understood each other perfectly, I was delighted to have this kind of communication with her and I am sure she was very happy and thankful for the water.

Isn't she pretty?

Have a wonderful week!!!

This horse is the first neighbor I met when we moved into our house, which incidentally, was two years ago today!!

Of course she understood you! Animals are sensitive to someone who genuinely tries to communicate a message - congratulations! Your story made me so happy :-) And what a fairytale picture... she IS very pretty and obviously intelligent!
