In the Beginning, Perhaps

When God created the horse, were the angels watching? Did they marvel at his beauty and intelligence? Wonder at his strength and speed? 

Did the Creator tell the angels how this magnificent creature would serve mankind under saddles and packs and harnesses, on roads and trails, in farm fields and battlefields, over mountains and continents? Did the angelic host applaud?

Perhaps God grinned and said, "But that's not the best part. Wait until you see what the horse will do for the kids! He'll share his strength with the weak, his confidence with the timid, his affection with the lonely, his patience with the agitated, his grace with the broken. 

"The horse is really for the kids."

       Sugar and one of her kids, Felix.
