It may seem odd to some to have a 4-legged being as your best friend, but my horse, Admiral, was my best friend. I cherished him deeply during his life and now, although he’s been gone from form for 8 years, I am still discovering gifts that he brought to my life.
Admiral provided a safe place, and a fun place to grow. He moved with me through so many stages of life’s transitions. I knew I loved him and I knew how deep our friendship was, but it wasn’t until the journey of assisting in his transition that I fully realized how deep this love was.
The emotional gifts and support that have I received through my relationship with Admiral has had long-lasting effects for me. He has inspired me to act on behalf of the horse. Each day, as I am with my herd, I take one more step towards embodying an indescribable love that I inspire to return.
