She started breeding them many years ago - the first foal she ever bred ended up with me nearly 20 years ago. She and I became fast friends. I often felt like Zoot here, wanting to just put my head up against her tiny shoulders - say how much I care about her and what an amazing mentor, friend and example of the good in people she is.
It shows clearly to me, how animals understand, accept and return our feelings. If we love, they respond in kind, if we are afraid, angry, or hate - they respond to that too.
And deep bonds can develop with all kinds of animals, not just dogs (which we sort of expect).
A tip of the hat to my friend and her big heart and to all the creatures lucky enough to have come into contact with her one way or another.
