It would be a good thing to make friends with time. In these last years, I think it’s the thing the Grandfather Horse has worked hardest to teach me. Here’s the math: He’s 30 this year, roughly the age I was when we met. He’s been retired now for as many years as I rode him. Somehow each year is sweeter than the one before, even if a bit worse for the wear.
I post some photos of beautiful, athletic horses here, and some funny ones, too. This photo is special. It reveals a richness, burnished and softened, and made better by time. We all think so.
